Editing your theme

You can edit your theme to customize your online store's content, layout, typography, and colors. Each theme provides sections and settings that allow you to change the look and feel of your store without editing any code.

Before you customize your theme

Before you customize your theme, it's a good idea to do the following tasks:

Edit your theme content and settings


  1. Find the theme that you want to edit and click Customize.

Different types of pages have different theme sections. When you first open the theme editor, the sections for the home page are shown. To access the sections for other pages, select the page type from the top bar drop-down menu.

Using the theme editor, you can edit the content that appears in your store by choosing and editing theme sections. You can also change the store look, feel, and functionality using the general theme settings.

To learn more about editing sections and theme settings, see Sections and Theme settings.

Get help with customizations

If you need help with making changes to your theme, then you can contact your theme's developer for support.
