To see the full list of home page section types simply click on Add Section whilst viewing your store home page in the theme customiser.
Home page sections can be added, hidden or re-arranged to best fit your store. Choose to show blog posts, products, collections, images, text, videos or slideshows on your homepage in any order you like.
We recommend using images that are all the same height and, at least, 1600px wide.

Note, the Slideshow is the only section that has the option to go full width to the edge of the browser. You can enable this in the Slideshow section and it will crop the image to fit both the height and width of the screen being viewed. Selecting a suitable image and testing on varying devices is important with this option!
You can choose between these image height settings:
- Adapt to first image: This retains the original image aspect ratio, so whilst it will fill the width on all device sizes, the height will alter to maintain the original entire image content.
- Fixed height: You can specify the height of the slideshow on desktop and mobile
Add videos from YouTube or Vimeo with a cover image.
Background video section
Add text over videos from YouTube or Vimeo. A cover image must be added to these sections, as the videos will not play on mobile. For more information about how to use background videos please read this article.
Canopy supports up to 25 homepage sections. This is a limit set by Shopify and not the theme. We can not override this. For more information, you can check out their support article on sections through this link.
