By including new forms in your theme, or adding custom fields to your theme's existing forms, you can make it easy for customers to provide you with information or feedback. A form is any part of your online store that allows customers to submit information. Some examples of common forms used in themes include: the contact form, the customer registration form, and the product page Add to cart form.
Before you edit your theme code
Before you edit your theme code, it's a good idea to do the following tasks:
- Check the settings for your theme in the theme editor. If there's a setting for the change that you want to make, then you don't need to edit your theme code.
- 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.
