Pages

If you have a Shopify online store, then you can create pages in your Shopify admin. Pages contain information that rarely changes or that customers will reference often, like an "About Us" page or a "Contact Us" page. Learn more about what to include in an "About Us" page.

You can also add a blog to your online store to update your customers about your business and products.


Add a new page to your online store

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Pages.
  2. Click Add page.
  3. Enter a title and content for the page. Be descriptive and clear when choosing your page title. Your page title is displayed in the tab or title bar of browsers, and also in search engine results.
  4. In the Visibility section, select when the page should be published. By default, your new page is visible after you click Save. Select the Hidden option if you want your new page to be hidden from your online store, or click Set a specific publish date to control when your page is published.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Optional: To display a published page in your online store navigation, add a link to it in a menu.

Add content to a page

The rich text editor displays text in the Content field in the same style that it displays on your store. You can format your text and change the text color by choosing options in the rich text editor. You can also insert the following elements into a page:

  • links
  • tables
  • images
  • videos

To edit the HTML code for the page, click the Show HTML button to view the HTML and make changes:

Shopify - page editor show html

You can add a link to a page to direct customers to another page in your online store or elsewhere on the internet.

Steps:

  1. In the Content field, enter text to transform into a link.
  2. Highlight the link text, and then click the Insert link button:

Shopify - insert page link
3. Enter a web address in the Link to field. Enter a descriptive Link title to help with search engine optimization and accessibility. 4. Click Save.

Add a Google map to a page

You can add a Google map for an address to a page in your online store. For example, it's a good idea to add a map to your About us page to display your retail location:

  1. In Google Maps, enter the address you want to map.
  2. Click the Share icon to open sharing options.
  3. Click Embed map to create your embed code.
  4. Choose the map size you want, then copy the code in the text box. The code begins with <iframe src= and is a tag written in HTML which embeds the map.

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Pages.

  1. Click the title of the page where you want to display your map.
  2. In the Content toolbar, click the Show HTML button to view HTML code for your page:
    Shopify - show html toolbar
  3. Paste the code that you copied from Google Maps into the Content box. You can embed the map at the bottom of your page by pasting the code after any existing content, or elsewhere on your page.
  4. Click Show Editor to switch back to the page editor from the HTML viewer and preview your map.
  5. Click Save.

Automatically generate content for a page

You can use Shopify Magic to automatically generate a title and content for your page. By default, American English is the dialect used for content suggestions. The language data that AI uses is largely from North American sources, so generated content might contain vocabulary and expressions that are local to that region. You can change any part of the content suggestions to match what your customers would expect.

Shopify Magic generates only the text for your pages. Any other interactive elements can be manually added. For example, if you are creating a contact page, then you might need to use custom code to create a functional contact form.

Steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Pages.
  2. Click Add page.
  3. Do any of the following:
    • To generate a page title, in the Title field, click the Generate text icon, and then write a description of what the page is about.
    • To generate page content, in the rich text editor of the Content section, click the Generate text icon, and then complete the following steps:
      1. Write a description of what the page is about.
      2. Optional: Select a new tone from the Tone of voice drop-down menu. Learn more about choosing a tone.
      3. Optional: Write any additional instructions that you want to add in the Special instructions field. Refer to Using special instructions for information about the types of instructions you can provide.
  4. Click Generate text.
  5. Optional: Do any of the following:
    • Click Try again to view the different results.
    • Select a different tone or modify your prompt, and then click Try again.
  6. Click Keep to add the suggested content to your page.
  7. Optional: Edit and format the generated content to match your brand.
  8. Click Save.

After you generate content for a page, you can complete the remaining steps to add a new page to publish it to your online store.
