If you are using a theme that supports our new theme editor, you can also create new custom pages with the same functionality as the home page.

You can identify the themes with the New Editor tag.

NOTE: If you are using one of our older themes. Adding custom pages will require some basic understanding of HTML unless you are only going to use our text editor for the layout. However, if you choose to use our text editor, know that it's quite basic, but if you are planning on only adding simple pages like the Privacy Policy page, it will do the trick.

A well-rounded storefront usually has several custom pages, which is vital for building trust with a user. Have you purchased from a website that had only two or three pages? It helps a customer see a website as legitimate if they see more than a couple of pages, even if the customer doesn't end up clicking on them.

A few examples of pages you might want on your site:

  • Privacy Policy

  • Terms of Service

  • About Us

  • Contact Us

Create a Custom Page

New Page Editor

With our new page editor, you can create a new page. Navigate to the Website tab, select Customize, open the pages dropdown list at the top and click Add New Page. Then you can give the page a Name and Page URL.

After creating the page, you can Add New Blocks or edit the general Page Settings.

For instance, we can click on the default Text Block and change the content. It is also possible to delete it.

You can open the Page settings to manage the following properties:

  • Page Name: internal theme name of the page. You will see the name only on the pages on the dropdown list at the top bar. Please note that it doesn't affect anything on your website

  • Page URL: it's the identifier slug of the page URL address

  • SEO Title: it's a title for the page, visible on web browsers

  • SEO Description: used to inform search engines/users with a short, relevant summary of what your page is about

  • Page Visibility: choose whether your page is visible or not on your website

Also, you can change the Liquid Template on the Advanced Settings. All templates can be created in the Code editor. By default, a template is a simple editor_page.liquid that exists in every theme that supports the new editor.

NOTE: Changes to page settings are published immediately. For instance, If you change the Page URL, it will be replaced instantly.

Other changes will be saved on the draft by default. To make the changes public, click the Publish button at the top right corner of the theme editor.

NOTE: Clicking the Publish button will make all changes in the theme public, not only the page you see on your screen.

When you create a new page in the Theme Editor, a JSON file will be generated with the page's blocks. The name of the page is the same as the page URL.

While it allows you to add advanced customization, we wouldn't recommend editing this file unless you are a well-rounded web developer. You can hire a developer for advanced custom changes.

Legacy Page Editor

If you haven't had a chance to update to our newer themes, creating a custom page is different from customizing your theme. You won't be able to use the theme editor to add or edit blocks for the custom page.

This page is essentially hidden unless you place a link to it somewhere in your theme. You can see how to set up navigation and link to custom pages here.

To create a page, navigate to the Website tab, select Pages, and click +New Page.

After you create the page, you can open edit, delete or open it.

Note that what you enter as the Title will generate an URL automatically by default. Therefore, a page called "Terms & Conditions" will end up with a final URL like https://yourstore.com/pages/terms-conditions.

If you forget the URL or change the title after creating it, you can click Advanced to see and edit the URL.
