That's it for most people!

If you want a more advanced layout using a Page Builder

If you are using a Page Builder plugin/theme like Elementor or Divi, which allows you to easily create custom page layouts with a drag and drop interface, you can do so in Sunshine with only a few extra steps.

Using Shortcodes

When Sunshine was installed, it created several pages automatically for you: Client Galleries, Favorites, Cart, Checkout, Account. On each of these pages, the respective shortcode was also inserted into each page.

For each of these pages, you can build your unique page layout and simply re-insert the respective shortcode where you want it to appear on the page.
