Eight Themes Support Documentation

Introduction to Theme settings

Theme settings can be used to make global adjustments to your storefront. Accessed from the left-side menu in the Theme Editor, you can easily configure various design elements. For example, theme colors, fonts, buttons, and layouts. Any changes you make will impact all templates.

Additionally, this space is a central hub for managing a range of theme-specific features including gift wrapping, pop-ups, social media links, breadcrumbs, animations, and the favicon.

In this guide, we'll provide you with an overview of each setting category. This will assist you in customizing your theme to align with your brand's preferred styling.

Colors

Within your Colors settings, you have complete control over the color of various storefront elements. You can customize general text, badges, headers, mobile navigation, buttons, color schemes, popups, the cart drawer, backgrounds, the footer, and everything in between.

Whether you decide to handpick your preferred colors, stick with the default settings, or input specific Hex codes - with this level of flexibility at your fingertips - you won't have any trouble finding colors that align with your brand!

Typography

In the Typography settings, you can configure the style of headings, body text, navigation, buttons, labels, logo text, and the announcement bar.

Every section has its own dedicated settings, allowing you to fine-tune elements where applicable, such as font style, size, capitalization, borders, and letter spacing.

Note: If your preferred fonts are not available in the theme's library, you can add custom fonts.

Cart

The Cart setting gives the option to change your cart to either a drawer, page or 'fixed' cart, enable dynamic checkout buttons and customer notes in the cart, and control your free shipping encouragement.

Products

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

This includes displaying sale prices and badges, showing local pickup availability, choosing how your product images behave when reacting with a customer's cursor, and choosing the position of the 'quick add' button.

The settings under Product grids only apply to products that are shown in grid format, such as in a Product recommendations section.

Social media

Within Social media settings, you have the option to connect your social media accounts to your theme.

Doing so will make it possible to display social media icons in your Announcement bar and/or Footer sections. Account fields that are left blank will not display an icon.

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.  


Favicon

A favicon is a small icon that represents your website (and brand) inside internet browser tabs and bookmark lists.

Utilize the Favicon settings to upload your favicon. For best results, upload a square image. The theme will automatically scale it to the optimal size of 32x32px.

Popup

Popup settings allow you to enable a popup message on your store and manage its contents.

With a popup, you can effectively convey marketing messages to all store visitors. It's a powerful tool for promoting your social media networks, building up mailing list subscribers, and driving sales.

The popup will appear upon entering your site. Customers will need to manually close it before proceeding - ensuring that your messaging won't go unseen!

Verification popup

You have the ability to integrate a verification popup, prompting customers to confirm their age before accessing your storefront. This feature is particularly beneficial for stores selling products subject to age restrictions or health and safety warnings.

In your Verification popup settings, you have the flexibility to customize a Yes/No question for your customers and decide the follow-up action. If the response is Yes, they will automatically proceed to your storefront. On the other hand, if they answer No, you can display a personalized response to guide them away from your store.

Search

Search settings can be used to enable your store's predictive search function to help customers navigate to relevant pages more easily. Furthermore, you have the option to showcase the vendor and price directly within the search results.

Checkout

The checkout is one page that's easy to overlook. However, by adding a little branding, you can provide reassurance and help prevent cart abandonment at a crucial stage. Imagery (which can contain text) and brand colors let customers know they are in the right place and can gently nudge people to complete their transactions. 

While Shopify controls much of the checkout process, your theme's Checkout settings contain several options to personalize the look and feel.

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

You can also edit the customer's order summary, using the same settings:

Theme styles

Within Theme styles, you can choose to change your theme of one of Fresh's other styles, including Sweet, Smooth, and Sharp. Some settings will be lost when you change your style, but you will not lose any content from your store.

Feel free to use this to effortlessly give your store a fresh coat of paint when you're feeling the need for a change. However, you may need to configure certain elements to realign the style with your branding.
