Welcome to the Eight Themes Docs

Introduction to Theme Settings

Theme settings are your store's general settings, which make global adjustments affecting your entire storefront.

Colors

 

Under your Colors settings, you have the option to select each color for the different elements of your storefront, including the text and content of the headers, borders, badges, background, and accents.

Typography

 

In your Typography settings, you can change the font, size, capitalization, and format of your storefront's text.

If the fonts that you wish to use are not available in the drop-down menu, you can follow our how-to guide on uploading your own custom fonts.

Cart

 

In your Cart settings, you can change how your storefront's cart looks and feels.

You can choose to display your cart type as either a drawer or a page, and you can also choose to display the product vendor, cart notes, gift message, and dynamic checkout buttons.

Products

 

Under Products, you can edit how your theme settings display products across your storefront.

This includes displaying discount savings, specifying the grid image size, and enabling the gift wrap option (and choosing a label for it).

Search

 

Under Search, you can enable your store's predictive search function to help your customers navigate your store.

You can also dictate what the search includes (such as products, pages, articles, and collections), and choose to display the vendor and price within the search results.

Social Media

 

Under Social media, you have the option to link up your social media accounts.

These settings must be in place before social media icons can be enabled within your announcement bar and footer.

Within your product page settings, you also have the option to enable share buttons on your product pages, so that your customers can share your products on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Breadcrumbs

 

Your Breadcrumbs settings allow you to enable breadcrumb navigation, which is a pathway at the top of the page telling your customer the route they took to get to the page they are on.

 
Example:

All collections > T-Shirts > White blossom cami

Popup

 

By enabling a Popup, you can directly and powerfully communicate marketing messages to your customers, advertise your social media networks, and encourage guests to subscribe to your mailing list.

‌This popup appears at the bottom of the page upon entering the site, and the customer must interact with it in order to close it.

Verification Popup

 

By enabling a Verification Popup, you can ensure that customers verify their age before accessing your storefront. This can be great for stores selling products with age restrictions or health-and-safety warnings.  

You can personalize a Yes/No question for your customers - if the customer answers 'Yes', then they're directed to your storefront.  If the customer answers 'No', then you can personalize a response for them using the theme settings, as shown below.

Favicon

Favicon is a small image that resides in your browser’s tabs (and often bookmark lists), allowing you to identify the page - and the brand that it represents - at a glance.

Animations

Under Animations, you can choose for your home page sections and collection pages to fade in from the bottom upwards as your customers scroll through them.

Checkout

 

Under Checkout, you can edit the appearance of your checkout page and ensure that the final steps of your customer's transaction are as intuitive and enticing as possible.

Settings include adding a background image for your banner, order summary, and main content area, adding a logo, and editing the typography and colors.

Theme Styles

 

Within Theme Styles, you can choose to change your theme to one of Flow's other styles, including Queenstown, Byron, and Cannes. Some settings will be lost when you change your style, but you will not lose any content from your store.
