Modules are a powerful feature in Convergence that allow you to edit parts of your website using a simple, code-free interface. Each module is basically a simple container that holds your content and allows you to easily access and change that content as needed. A solid understanding of modules will help you quickly and easily change your site to your exact needs.
Convergence offers 8 different module types, and each module type is used to create and display different types of content. When you want to create a new content area, simply decide what type of content you want to add and choose the module type that corresponds to that content.
