Displayed in the "Information" block in the left column, and in the "Information" section of the footer.

"Preferences" menu, "CMS" page, then edit and create pages at will.

Social networks

A block presenting three links: your company's Facebook page, your company's Twitter account, and the RSS feed for your company's blog (or "current events" site).
By default, all these links lead to the PrestaShop company's own sites. It is important that you change it to your own.
Displayed in the "Follow us" section of the footer.

"Social networking block" module.
Top menuThe top of the default theme uses a top menu to indicate categories that the visitor can go to, as well as links to other locations – for instance, the default installation has a "Blog" link which sends the use to the official PrestaShop blog."Top horizontal menu" module.
Homepage contentThe default theme contains a lot of demo content: texts, images, links, etc. If you intend on using that theme for your own store instead of buying your theme, you should make sure to remove all the default content first."Theme configurator" module: this module handles a lot of things on your theme. Mainly, it enables you to switch some feature off and on (social sharing buttons, top banner, payment logos, etc.), and perhaps more importantly, it lets you easily add/change images on your home-page.
"Custom CMS information block" module: this module helps you manager the two last blocks at the bottom of the home-page, right before the footer: the "Free shipping etc." one and the "Custom block" one.
