What Shopify Theme A Store Is Using

You saw a great looking Shopify store and want to know what theme it is using? There are a few ways to find out which theme a Shopify store is using, and the approach we recommend is to look directly into the code.

You can either use a web developer toolbar in Chrome (or Firefox e.t.c.) or you can press the Right Click – View Page Source. Then search for a word “theme” and find a chunk of code looking something like this:

Importing Shopify CSV – Errors

The fastest way to bulk update your products in Shopify is via CSV. In order to have a properly structured document, you will need to edit it exactly by the Shopify’s standard.

Filter Search Results in Shopify

If you wish to display certain search results on your store, as opposed to all which is the default, you will have to specify so in the code.

Possible scenario, one which we encounter the most, is that the clients do not want to display blog posts when search is used, but only products.

Shopify Log Out Link

We had an interesting case of a theme that doesn’t have the log out link! Customers were emailing the client asking how to log out once they placed their order, and there was no way to do it.

If you stumble upon the same theme, or need this line of code to use somewhere on the site, here it is:

{{ 'Log out' | customer_logout_link }}

You can edit the CSS per your needs targeting the #customer_logout_link.

Commenting In Liquid

Liquid has its own syntax, and if you need to comment parts of code, instead of trying to comment HTML or deleteing code you may need later on, simply use:

{% comment %}
{% endcomment %}


{% comment %}
{% if form.errors %}
  <div class="{{ form_errors_class }}">
    {{ form.errors | default_errors }}
{% endif %}
{% endcomment %}
