After you choose a theme that defines the basic look and feel of your online store, you can customize the theme to suit your unique brand. You can customize your theme content and settings from your Shopify admin by using the theme editor. The theme editor includes a theme preview and a sidebar or Edit menu that you can use to add and remove content, and to make changes to your settings. To learn about which sections and settings are available for your theme, see your theme's documentation.
If your theme doesn't include settings for the changes that you want to make and you are comfortable with HTML, CSS, and Liquid, then you can edit your theme code.
Before you customize your theme
Before you customize your theme, it's a good idea to do the following tasks:
- Duplicate your theme to create a backup copy. This makes it easy to discard your changes and start again if you need to.
- Make sure that you understand what level of support is available.
- Learn about the requirements and best practices for uploading images.
