The latest versions of the theme include three sidebars - one for the home page, one for blog pages and one for blog posts/articles.
There's no space to show the sidebar at the side on smaller screens so we've included settings to show (or hide) Individual blocks of content in the sidebar for mobiles.
Home page sidebar content is shown above other home page sections - great for promotions.
Blog post and blog sidebar content is shown below the page content.
The theme includes a variety of ways to list your collections - the "Mini" collection list, "Row" layout and "Grid" layout.
Featured collection images will be cropped in different ways dependent on the situation and screen size - below are some examples to help you to make the most of these layouts.
Mini collection list
Used in all 3 sidebars, the mobile menu and as a section on the home page
The collection featured image will be used, or if the collection doesn't have a featured image the theme will pull in the first product image from the collection. Images are cropped centrally but the amount of the image shown varies based on the layout.
Choose images with a central focal point or where there is meaningful content in the center of the image for best results.
To choose your preferred crop shape, please go to Theme Settings > Layout > Image Shape. Choose a natural fit, portrait crop, square crop or landscape crop (shown below).
Used on the collections listing page or on your collections page
The row layout on the collections listing page shows one collection per row. Choose to crop the image - top, center, bottom or show the full image. A central focal point will ensure the key content of your image is shown on large or smaller screens.
On a collection page, the featured collection image can be shown in full or cropped. If your featured image is square or portrait in shape and the crop isn't looking good, then you can choose not to show the collection featured image at all. Remember, it's always possible to add an image (and text) into your collection description instead.
Used as a section on the home page or on your collections listing page
The grid layout shows 3 images - the collection featured image and first two products in the collection. The large image will be either your featured collection image or, as this may not always be suitable (particularly if you are using it on a standard collections page), you can add an alternative image in the theme settings.
When the grid layout is used on the home page, there's also an extra option to add a subheading under the collection name.
