Shopify section settings

Shopify section settings DEFAULT

Introduction

Sections are a feature that allow store owners to add, edit, remove and easily reorder content on a page. There are 2 types of sections: dynamic and fixed. Dynamic sections are able to be reordered in their entirety with other sections on the page (homepage). Fixed sections cannot be reordered, but the content within them can still be added to, edited, removed and reordered.

Things to remember:

  • The schema of a section is scoped to that particular section. This means you can give your variables relatively simple names without worrying about them clashing with variable names from other sections on the same page.

Including a Section on a Page

Including a Static Section on a page is similar to including a snippet. The only difference is instead of using the word you use the word .

Using this tag will "hardcode" the section into your theme at the place where you put the code and cannot be moved or deleted from the page.

To use Dynamic Sections, you need to use the control at the bottom of the schema settings for that section.

By using presets, this will enable you to move and add your section around your page as you require. It also allows you to fill in the section with dummy content so that you can view exactly how the section will look on your page without actually having to add it to the page.

In File Schema

For sections, instead of utilizing one big JSON file (like , they instead keep their schema within the file of the section that is using it. To do this tags are used and JSON is placed between them. From there, the format is similar to .

To use this in your HTML/Liquid code you would pull from . Something like:

Using Blocks for Recurring Elements

One of the most useful things that came along with sections is blocks. Blocks are basically a blueprint for something that can be created an unlimited amount of times. One of the best examples is the slides of a slider. A block is a top level item in the schema, meaning it is alongside things like and , but not within them. Within blocks are basically mini schemas.

Notice the Slide also has a type of . You can give your blocks their own type that is not one of the Shopify provided types.

To use this you would just loop over each block in your HTML/Liquid code.

Using JavaScript and Stylesheets in Sections

Each section can can contain JavaScript and Stylesheets, these two languages are used within liquid tags: & .

When placing code inside of these two tags, Shopify compiles each piece into & . This allows for greater readability within each section's code as you don't have to search through a long document to find each piece.

If you don't want to use CSS, you can alternatively use SCSS by using instead.

There are downfalls to using these, though. Liquid cannot be used in any of them, just as it can't be used in normal , , files without the extension.

Also, when using the SCSS stylesheet tag, this isn't a global stylesheet, so any variables defined within your theme's document won't be accessible and will need to be redefined.

Usage Examples

JavaScript

CSS

SASS

How To Create Custom Sections In Shopify

Hi,

Let’s start, how to create custom sections in Shopify.

Suppose we are making a simple “Welcome content” section for the home page.

Steps to follow:

1) From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes.
2) Find the theme you want to edit and click Actions > Edit code.
3) Go to Sections > Add a new section > Enter section name (eg:-welcome)
4) After entering the name of section Click “Create section”.
5) After the section is created copy the static “HTML” code to that section.

STATIC CODE :-

6). Then add the presets details as shown above and SAVE it.

Note: In the above code, there is a “presets” under {% schema %}. Presets is used to Add Section in the backend “Customize” settings of the theme.

About Presets:

Presets must have a name and a category. Section presets and will be grouped by their category in the theme editor.

A preset’s settings object contains the values that will be assigned to the section when a merchant adds it to their home page. The preset’s settings schema must be valid according to the section’s settings schema.

Now test the code is working or not for that you have to follow these steps:

Testing Steps:

1). Click the Customize theme.

2). Under Sections select “Add section”.

3). Then search for the section you are made custom as shown below image, I added the section Under “ADVANCED LAYOUT” category and named as “Welcome section Test”.

4). Then, select the section you made and add it. You can check the section is added at your right side screen.

5). After that SAVE it and Refresh your site. You can see the sections are added as shown below.

Congrats! Your Custom section is successfully made & added to the home page . . .

If everything runs correctly, now you can make the “DYNAMIC” Code which is used to add multiple sections to the home page and edit their content without affecting the other sections.

But in “STATIC” code if we change one section it will affect others also:-

DYNAMICCODE :- Copy and replace to Static code and SAVE it.

After that follow the “Testing Steps” as mentioned above.

Now you can see there are 2 custom sections and both have different contents as shown below :-

You can drag the sections up and down according to you from the backend “customize settings” as shown above.

NOTE:A maximum of 25 dynamic sections can be added to the home page.

How To Design A Shopify Home Page THAT SELLS!

Shopify App and Theme Development tutorials for those who are familiar with code and want to dive into Shopify.

Section Types

Sections in Shopify are probably one of the highest value aspects for the client experience. They really empower non-technical clients control over a lot of their shops.

In this post we wanted to create a quick reference to all the types, as well as hightlight a few new and interesting one.

⬇Skip to the reference here⬇

video_url

You can now add video urls from either YouTube or Vimeo. This make it so much easier to let store owners swap out videos for things like seasonal promotions or new product announcements.

Like with all sections, the , , attributes are mandatory. In this case the attribute is also required (and can only be youtube and/or vimeo).

You can reference a video_url setting . You can also reference the videos id (returns ) and the videos type (returns )

richtext

Rich text allows the user to have a little more control over the content they're adding. They can bold or italicize text and add links, but also prevents them from going completey rogue.

The value returned to you in liquid is html which you can use css to style.

Supported HTML tags: , , , , , , , ,

html

The HTML tag allows for the most customization from admin interface. You can write straight up code directly in there (it will strip out tags like HTML, HEAD, andBODY - but pretty much everything else is fair game).

This could be very useful if you have a client that's a little more technical. Or if you know you'll be having to update things, but you don't want to be going through the process of a full deploy just to change some small sections.

Section Types Reference

Each regular setting has 5 attributes : , , , ,,

TypeRequirementDescription
typemandatorydefines the type of input the option takes
idmandatorymust be unique. It is how the settings are references in the theme.
labelmandatorydescribes to the user what the option is for.
placeholderoptionalA value for the input's placeholder text. This is for text-based setting types only..
defaultoptionalto define a default value for the option.
infooptionalto provide additional info about the option to the end user.

Regular Setting Types

The following table describes regular input types allowed. The value of each is set in the type attribute

🔥Note: the setting was once known as just .

ValueExplanation
textAllows the user to input a single line text field
textareaAllows the user to input multi line text
image_pickerAllows the user to upload images
radioAllows the user to select from radio buttons
selectAllows the user to select from a drop-down
checkboxAllows the user to check a box return a true or false value
rangeAllows the user to choose a value withing a range with a range slider

Image Picker

It is noteworthy that images uploaded this way will be saved in an asset library and can be reused in other places (rather than the asset folder of the previous image type). It also now provides an image object and the img_url filter can be used to get the URL. Alt text can also now be explicity written.

In the example below I set the image url to a variable with assign in liquid and then use the variable in the src attribute of the img tag.

Radio and Select types

Because radio and select types have multiple values to choose from, the settings definition will also require an options attribute. This will take an array of objects with a value and label each.

Range Slider

The range slider takes on all the values that would be required to build a range slider in HTML

Specialized Setting Types

Specialized settings are defined the same way as regular settings. The difference is that these settings offer specialized and pre-selected info for the user to choose from. For example the product type is a dropdown but only allows the user to select from products already defined in the store.

ValueExplanation
colorAllows the user to choose a color with a color picker widget
fontAllows the user to select from a list of fonts available
collectionAllows the user to choose a product collection available in the store
productAllows the user to select a product available in the store
blogAllows the user to select from a list of blogs set up in the store
link_listAllows the user to select from available menus
pageAllows the user to select a certain page defined in the store
urlAllows the user to add a url (external or internal)
video_urlAllows the user to include video link from youtube or vimeo
richtextAllows the user to add text and with minimal styles and also links
htmlAllows the user to add custom HTML
articleAllows the user to select a certain page defined in the store
⚠️snippets⚠️Warning: snippet is no longer included in this list.

⚠️Warning ⚠️

If you add settings in the Shopify admin and then later start using the settings_schema.json file ALL your admin settings will be wiped out and replaced by the files setting.

Informational Settings

Shopify also allows you to create purely informational settings to go into the sidebar (they refer to these as sidebar settings). The configuration is very similar to all the other settings, but they only have 3 attribute : , ,

TypeRequirementDescription
typemandatorydefines the type of input the option takes. For sidebar settings this can only be either header or paragraph
contentmandatorytext content
infooptionalto provide additional info about the option to the end user.
