Get customers to choose an option
Vintage themes aren't available in the Theme Store. These themes don't have the features included in Shopify's
Online Store 2.0 themes, and Shopify free Vintage themes don't receive updates beyond security fixes.
This customization is for vintage Shopify themes, and doesn't apply to Online Store 2.0 themes.
When a customer visits a product page in your online store, the first available variant is selected by default. You can use this customization to disable the auto-selecting of the first available variant. That way, the customer will be prompted to manually select a variant before one is shown.
Because this customization prevents a variant from being selected by default, your theme might not show a product price until after the customer selects a variant. This is expected behaviour, because products with variants do not have a featured price. The price that is displayed is determined by the variant that is selected.
Sectioned and non-sectioned themes
The steps for this tutorial differ depending on whether you are using a
sectioned or a non-sectioned theme. A sectioned theme lets you drag and drop to arrange the layout of your home page, and a non-sectioned theme doesn't.
To figure out whether your theme supports sections, go to the theme's
Edit code page. If there are files in the Sections directory, you are using a sectioned theme. Non-sectioned themes were released before October 2016, and do not have files in the Sections directory.
If you are using a sectioned theme, click the
Sectioned themes button and follow the instructions. If you are using an older, non-sectioned theme, click the Non-sectioned themes button and follow the instructions.
