Redirecting your home page to another page on Uscreen

You may want to use your theme's home page in the future, so this approach makes it so you can easily switch back to using it, should you change your mind.

If you know your way around the Code Editor, you can add code to have your homepage redirect either to a custom page or directly to the catalog, following the steps detailed bellow (these steps will make it so that no one, including admins, can see the default Theme Home Page you have selected):

First, make a backup of your theme.

Next, navigate to your Code Editor, then to index.liquid.

Wrap the existing logic in your index.liquid with {% comment %} and

{% endcomment %}. This will comment all of that out so it effectively does not render.

Now, below that, add

<meta content="0; url=/your-permalink-on-uscreen" http-equiv="refresh" />

Replace "/your-peramlink-on-uscreen" with the appropriate permalink, whether that's "/catalog", "/pages/features", or another link on your Uscreen site.

Be sure to click on Save Changes.

When you visit your storefront as a site admin, make sure to Sign Out to see the change take effect.

Redirecting your home page outside of Uscreen

This approach is recommended only if you do not plan to use your theme in any capacity in the future. If you apply the changes below, this will overwrite your theme and if you choose to use your theme/home page in the future, you will have install a fresh copy, which will overwrite any other customizations you have made in the Code Editor.

If you know your way around the Code Editor, you can add code to have your homepage redirect either to a custom page, directly to the catalog, or to an external landing page of your choice by following the steps detailed bellow (these steps will make it so that no one, including admins, can see the default Theme Home Page you have selected):

Here's our video about this.

If you are a site admin looking to redirect the Home Page elsewhere while you edit the Home Page and still need to be able to view the Home Page during this process, please contact our support at support@uscreen.tv.
