Collection Page vs Custom Page

Collection Pages are pages that have image links that go to different internal website pages. Think of them as being like a Contents or Index page with image navigation for your website.

For more information on Collection Pages, please see our guides here.

We have a wide variety of different Collection Page styles within our various theme templates, along with customization options for these, however, you may want to create your own image navigation with your own styling and layout and you can do this with a Custom Page.

For more information on Custom Pages, please see our guides here.
