What is the featured collection section?
The Featured Collection section is used to showcase a group of products in an eye catching way. The section can be used in multiple areas on your store and can be helpful in both driving additional impulse purchases and improving conversions.
How to set up a featured collection
- Open the Theme Editor.
- Click Add section and select Featured collection to add the section to your page.
- To populate the section with products, navigate to Featured collection > Collection and select a collection from your inventory.
- The Layout settings can be used to further customize the design of the section for both desktop and mobile devices.
- The Featured collection section can be further enhanced in the Title card settings, where there are several areas that can be customized.
Show title card - An additional product card will be shown with the name of the collection.
Show background image - The collection image applied to each collection in the Shopify admin area, will be shown.
Custom image - If selected, this will override the background image mentioned above.
Color scheme - If no custom image or background image are selected, a color scheme can show. Color schemes need to be set up in Theme Settings > Colors > Card color scheme first, and the color scheme setting here is just for the title card. To change the color scheme of the product cards after the title card, go to Theme Settings > Product cards > color scheme.
- Click Save when the section set up is complete.
Carousel vs grid layout
Whilst similar, each layout has its benefits, and can be used to create different looks on your store.
The Enable carousel on desktop setting will display the product cards in a single row with horizontal scrolling, and is ideal for when a more compact look is required.
When the Carousel option is disabled, a grid layout will show. This will show products in multiple rows, and can be an excellent solution when looking to show more than one row of products. The Number of columns on desktop and the Rows settings can be changed to adjust the look.
