  1. what if I have deleted the 2nd Top Hook banner and now I want to add it back? 

    It should be a no brainer drag & drop or copy paste in the default theme configurator.  What am I missing?



    1. Hello Tom,

      Sorry for the problem restoring the hook banner. Check out this post from the PrestaShop Support community page. It discusses restoring hooks or banners.
