On this page, we cover Boost’s various sections.
‘Feature header’ settings
Choose a ‘Standard’ or ‘Feature‘ header layout for collection pages. The ‘Feature‘ header includes the option to select a ‘Featured product‘ to show in the header as a stand-out row on the first page of your collection.
You will need to be viewing the selected collection in the theme editor area to see the featured header.
Steps to create your collection header featured product
- Online store
- Customise theme
- Navigate to a collection page
- Click to expand ‘Collection’ on the left hand side panel.
- Activate the “Enable feature header” checkbox.
- Back in the left hand panel, select “Add collection”.
- Choose which collection to affect, plus select a featured product too if needed.
- Save your changes.
If your product images are not the same shape on your storefront, the product setting “align product titles” can help to achieve a more consistent layout. This setting is in all versions after 1.3.0

For a more in-depth and walkthrough, check out the video below.
Step A: Creating the template
- We first need to create a new page template by heading to Admin > Online store > Customise theme
- In the template picker at the top of the customisation window, select Pages > Create a template. Give it a descriptive name like “Groceries Coll List”
- You will now be taken to that template. Look on the left-hand side and you’ll see the options to add sections to this page. Add a ‘Collection list’ section to the page.
- Use the settings to pick the collections you want to show, and also disable any features you don’t want to use on this page – like a carousel layout, or ‘View all’ links.
- Once done, save this template. You are now ready to assign it to a page.
Step B: Creating your page and assigning your template
- Make sure you have your theme published for this part, otherwise you won’t be able to select the template.
- Head to Admin > Online store > Pages > Add page. You can name the page whatever you like and insert a page description if you desire. (The theme editor area settings allows you to hide the title and description, if you wish – just remember a clear main heading is important for ‘accessibility’ and SEO).
- On the right lower side you will see an option for ‘page template’, click this and select the new template you created in step 1.
- Once you have assigned this template, click save, and that’s it. You should now be able to view this page and see your collections displayed on it.
Featured products in a blog article
The Blog page also includes a magazine layout allowing you to showcase articles from multiple blogs on the same page.
You can also show products in your articles, blog page and homepage blog section, as soon as you add links to products anywhere in your blog article content. Simply add links within your blog article to any number of products in your store to have them display in the blog section on your homepage and in your blog and article pages.
