Therefore, like all third-party theme developers, we are unable to provide coding customizations as per Shopify's official guidelines.
To customize your theme, you can use your theme settings to change your storefront's colors, typography, and other stylistic features. However, if you wish to make changes to your storefront that are not options within your theme editor, you can do so by changing your theme's code. Some of these changes may include:
- Custom changes made by you, the merchant (such as by following tutorials to amend the theme).
- Custom changes made by a developer.
- Installing (and uninstalling) apps.
