Eight Themes Support Documentation

Introduction to page templates

Page templates are the foundation of your Online Store. Each unique template contains an organized collection of sections, carefully crafted to shape your storefront's appearance.

You can customize templates by adding, removing, and editing sections to match your store's style and needs.

In Momentum, we have provided additional templates to get you set up as quickly as possible. You can apply them to Products, Collections, Pages, Blogs, Blog posts, and more.

Learn more about templates here.

Customizations

You can edit a template to create a unique design effect or display different content. Learn more about editing templates.


Home Page

Your Home page is your store's main page. Home pages play a crucial role in establishing a positive first impression and providing customers with a comprehensive overview of what you have to offer.

The Home page template comes pre-loaded with many sections, and it's ready to go live. Whenever you feel the need to make a change, add, remove, or reorder sections as you see fit.

Note: Want to edit the home page template? Read our tutorial on Introduction to sections first.

Products

Your Product page is the cornerstone of your Online Store. It's the go-to destination for customers seeking information to make informed decisions about a product. If the page effectively communicates everything a customer might want to know, visitors to your store will feel more inclined to add the item to their cart or go directly to checkout.

On this page, you have the flexibility to showcase a range of product media (images, videos, and 3D models) as well as product variants. You can change the variant based on the thumbnail, alter the product variant style, hide sold-out variants, and change the thumbnail position.

We included these templates in the theme as standard:

Default product
A stripped-back version with basic settings, it's the perfect platform to build your own custom product page template.

Promo sale
A distinctive, clean two-column layout with an accordion to display product images and drop-down menus for variants.

Gift card
Use this template for your gift card products. We removed all fluff so you can focus the reader's attention on the selling points.

Coming soon
Use this template to build excitement before the product is ready to sell. Highlight key information and give customers a reason to come back on launch day.

Pre-order
Generate sales before the product hits the digital shelves. Use the pre-loaded FAQ section to answer anticipated questions about arrivals, shipping dates, and more. 

Did you know? You can create custom Product page templates and assign them to specific products, so customers see different content depending on the product they select.

 

Note: The actual contents and configurations of a product are set up through the Products area of your Shopify admin dashboard. The template pulls this information and displays it inside the Product form.

Collections

A Collection page is designed to exhibit your collections - i.e. a specific category of products that you have grouped together. For example, a clothing store may have a collection just for t-shirts.

A single product can be featured in multiple collections across your store. For instance, a t-shirt might appear in a second collection that's been created for discounted products, and a third for summer clothing.

Collection pages help your customers find products more easily. And by using filters and sorting options, results can be narrowed down even quicker.

Note: Collections are not created inside the theme. They are created manually or automatically within your Shopify admin space - click here to read Shopify's help pages.


We included these templates in the theme:

Default collection
Display a straightforward collection page with a text heading and grid followed by content sections that showcase styling and unique selling points.

Promo sale
Similar to the Sale template (see below), this option has a menu at the top of the page. The menu tabs help site visitors quickly jump to high-interest product categories.

Style
Building on the Promo sale template, this option comes pre-loaded with interactive images and featured collections.  

Sale
It's a clone of the Default template with one splashy difference. A big, bold banner displays as soon as customers land on the collection page.

Collections list
Showcase all your collections within a master collection. This template works like the Collection list template that comes with all Shopify themes, but there's a difference. You can pick and choose the collections you display and link to.

Here are some examples. 

Women's
• Dresses, Tops, Shoes

Brands
• Adidas, Nike, Puma

Bottoms
• Trousers, Shorts, Skirts

 

Collection landing
Choose this template when you want to introduce a product grouping, such as gender, brand, product type, or something else altogether.

This template blends story-telling and product description, a potent combination that drives powerful landing pages. Feel free to clone the master and create a custom template for every story that needs to be told.

 

Brand
Create a visually stunning branding page with a high-impact image and text overlay.


Collection list

You can utilize the Collections list template to showcase multiple collections on a single page - providing an effective way to highlight the diversity of your products.

Within the Collection list settings, you have the flexibility to present either all of your collections or add a select few in your preferred order. Customize the look of your lists by choosing the layout style (preview or grid view) and determining the number of products featured per row.

Note: Looking for your Collections list page on your storefront? Simply add /collections to the end of your site's main URL. For example: yourstore.com/collections

This URL is also the prefix to your catalog page. For example: yourstore.com/collections/all


Pages

This is where our templates really shine. Engage the customer, give your store a personality, and build unique layouts that enhance the product line.

The theme includes these templates:

Default page
A blank slate ready for your creative genius. Display only what you add to your pages via Online Store > Pages.

FAQs
A quick start layout to display frequently asked questions. The easy-to-follow design helps visitors find information or learn how to contact your support team.

Brands info
Another section-rich template, this one uses a gallery layout. Showcase all your brands as soon as customers land on the page.

About
A combination of image and text-based sections. Promote your brand and give customers a chance to know your story.

Contact
A clean template with a contact form and links to FAQs to help your customers find answers.


Blog

Your Blog page lists and previews the posts within your storefront's blog, latest news, or press releases. Take full advantage of this space by adding extra sections to further personalize it.

Note: Your blogs are managed within your Shopify admin settings under Online Store > Blog posts

Blog post

A Blog post template showcases blog post content (also known as articles). Again, you can add more sections to this page to catch the attention of your readers and keep them reading for longer!

To learn more about the difference between a blog and a blog post, check out Shopify's help pages for Blogs.


Cart

Your Cart page (also known as the trolley or basket), serves as the virtual space where customers gather the products they wish to purchase while navigating your store. The Cart allows customers to review and make adjustments to the items they have added, such as increasing or decreasing the quantity.

While specific settings aren't available directly within the Cart, customization options are accessible under Theme settings. For example, you can offer customers a message note field to provide additional order instructions. There's also a designated space for adding a personalized gift message.

Like all other templates, you can add extra sections to show off products, collections, and content to try and extend your customers' visits to your store before they complete their purchases.

Note: The Cart is not the same as the Checkout. The Checkout is where payment and delivery details are processed. This is handled by the Shopify platform and is therefore outside the theme's control. Read Shopify checkout help pages to learn more.


Checkout

Your Checkout page template is controlled by Shopify's platform. As a result, there are no sections available for you to edit here. However, you can customize several visual elements of the checkout through your Theme settings.


Customer templates

Use these templates for customer accounts and log in. All the standard functionality is here, plus you can add sections and basic stylings.

 

Others

Password page

Enable this page by clicking Sales channels > Online Store > Preferences > Password protection.

This template blocks visitors to your website until you're ready to sell. The password page presents an email sign-up form so you can collect contact information for potential customers. When you're ready to open for business, send out an email blast telling folks about your launch and promote what's coming soon.

404 page

A 404 page error can appear when a page is not found. This is typically due to manual URL typos or clicking on a link that doesn't correspond to any location on your site.

These errors commonly arise when links to products or pages are shared on external websites (e.g., social media) but have been altered or removed before the customer clicks on them.

We recommend adding a touch of personality to this page and offering various destinations for the customer to click on and get back on track. Landing on a 404 can be frustrating but you have an opportunity to make something fun and playful!

Search

The page displays a grid of suggested content along with a search bar and any sections you may want to add.
