The ShowTime and Galleria themes share very similar feature sets, though there are a few notable differences we'd like to point out between the two themes. As always, we strongly encourage you to download trial versions of both themes to test out all the features and choose the best one for your needs.
Features unique to ShowTime
- The ShowTime theme has three different header styles while Galleria has two.
- The ShowTime theme allows you to place your logo on the left of the menu or in the center of the header. Galleria currently only allows a centered logo.
- The ShowTime theme allows you to natively hide the Add to Cart button and price for products that are priced at $0. Galleria does not have this function.
- The ShowTime theme features a live search feature, which suggests search results as you type. Galleria currently does not.
Features unique to Galleria
- Galleria allows you to place your header on top of background images, such as a slideshow or hero image on the home page, and customizable header images on other pages. ShowTime does not offer such a function.
