Order the Frontpage Sections
In Zelle Pro you have access to rearrange the homepage sections as you like. The frontpage is split into 13 sections and you can assign one of the available sections as you like depending on what you want to achieve.
Now tread carefully as you can assign a section more than once in different parts of the frontpage and this will render it more than once resulting in duplicated content. If you end up with such a case just assign a section that is not visible instead of the duplicate.
The Shop Page
Zelle Pro is a multi-functional WordPress theme. You can create an online shop using this theme as it is compatible with the WooCommerce plugin. You can choose to place a sidebar on your Shop page which will be made available once you have the WooCommerce installed.
