What is the blog page?
The Blog page is used for sharing insightful and informative content relating to a store's products, services or news. It's useful for building credibility and trust with customers and can help to establish your brand.
Blogs can also improve a store's search engine optimization (SEO), increasing the chance of the site ranking higher on search engines. This could help drive more traffic to your store.
How to set up the blog page
- Follow the How to create a blog guide and How to create blog posts guide on the Shopify support site to create blog content and blog excerpts.
- Open the Theme Editor and select Blogs > Default blog from the dropdown at the top or, navigate to your blog via your menu.
- Click on the Blog pages section on the left hand side. This section represents the entire blog page, and allows various page settings to be customized.
Blog page layout
Choose to crop your blog featured image using the setting Image size.
On larger screens choose from a list layout to show the blog article excerpts in a long list or alternatively, show your blog post excerpts and images in tiles organised in columns on the page. Set the Tile size and Margin between tiles to control the layout for larger screens. Bear in mind the number of tiles shown and exact tile size will depend on the screen width. A list layout is always used on mobile.
How do I add additional share links?
Currently the share links are limited to two. If you require more links, then you would need to hire a developer. There are excellent Shopify developers who might be able to help you such as Taskhusky who have worked with our themes for years.
