Creating page templates

There is one Default page template for every page. This means that changes made to a default page template will apply to all pages that use that template.

To change the content or style of a specific page, you will need to create a new template and then assign that template to that page in the Shopify admin.

1. How to create a new page template:

  • In the theme editor, use the page selector to open Pages > Create template.

  • Add Name in the provided field for the new template. (e.g. About Us)

Using the Based on drop-down menu, select which existing template you want to base your new template on. The new template will duplicate the settings of the template you selected.

  • Click Save.

2. How to assign the page template

After creating a page template, return to the Shopify admin and assign your page to the newly created template to the page.

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

  • Click the title of the store page.

  • In the Theme template option, use the drop-down menu to select a new theme template to apply to the selected page.

  • Click Save.

Note: Page templates cannot be assigned on unpublished or trial themes. All changes to your templates will be saved but can only be assigned when published and purchased.
