Sections

Build your own home page with a wide variety of sections.

Overview

Using different Section types in your preferred order and style will help make a landing page that is immediately on brand and engaging for visitors.


Sections allow you to add new content sections to your homepage, and change the settings live to suit your needs. You can add, among others:

  • Slideshows
  • Collections
  • Products
  • Maps
  • Newsletters
  • Videos

You can also toggle the visibility of these with a single click by clicking on the eye icon to the right of each section.

When you select a section to be moved, you can see how this new arrangement would look on your site within the editor. 

Only when you save these changes on a published theme will they be reflected on your Storefront.


To view your Sections and make changes to them, you can do this here:

  1. Admin
  2. Online Store > Themes > Customise
  3. Theme Settings

Click on one of the sections and drag it to move it. You will see that the right-hand-side preview window updates to give you a peek at how this will look, in real-time. 

Once you let go, the section fits into place and you can choose to save your changes if you wish. Or you can revert, by clicking this arrow:
