About the Customizer Page

The Customizer page, also called the Customize theme page, is the location where you can make changes to your web site and live-preview the changes. You can customize various aspects of your theme and your web site, including the colors, layouts, widgets, menus, and more. This page displays a fully functional view of your currently selected theme. As you customize the page, the appearance of the theme changes to give you a chance to preview your selections.

Much of the functionality of the Customizer page is controlled by WordPress. For more information, see Appearance Customize Screen in the WordPress codex.

The Customizer page is only available if you have the Kigo Discovery theme selected.
