Alchemy theme support

Header and footer


The Alchemy theme supports both a standard 3 tier drop down navigation and a full-width mega menu.

The theme switches the menu into a full-width mega menu when every link inside a dropdown also has a drop down.

To make ‘mega’ drop downs, like the one in this demo store, you need to create ‘nested’ navigation as follows. Under the menu item you’d like the mega menu to drop down from, add as many title links as you like. Each of these title links must then have its own items nested inside for the dropdown menu to turn into a mega drop down menu:

Add other menus in your store following the usual Shopify method explained here.

Menu image promotion

To show promotional images in your main menu, click ‘header’ and scroll to the bottom, then select ‘Add menu promotion’. Now this next step is very important and it’s where many make a mistake. Make sure you enter the dropdown menu name that you wish the image to appear under. This is case sensitive, so for example, using ‘Shop’ rather than ‘SHOP’ would make a difference – it must match navigation link title exactly. Then simply add your image, link and text.

Announcement bar

Add an announcement bar at the top of your site. Here are some ideas you can use them this section:

  • Announce a seasonal sale for a limited time only!
  • Mention the brand new discount code you have activated today!
  • Encourage people to read your latest blog post by linking directly to it.
  • State that all items have free shipping.

Footer section menu

The primary menu can show menus up to two levels deep. Sub-menus will be shown in columns under the top-level link. The secondary menu does not support sub-menus. Links will be shown as a single line, next to your payment icons.

Payment icons

Payment icons are pulled directly from the Shopify backend, based on the payment settings you have set up. If you are looking to remove/add payment icons that are not in the list, the theme allows you to add one additional payment icon and link. If you need to display more, the theme’s code would need to be customised by a specialist developer.
