Creating your Story Page

The story page is a special template we have added to our themes which gives you useful sections to help you promote your brand and story.

Important: The theme needs to be published in order to see the template, you can un-publish it once you have the template added to a page. If you are on a trial you can skip ahead. The page.story template is designed for use on one page in your store. The same content will show on all pages using the page.story template. For information on adding more than one page, skip ahead.

Head to Online Store > Pages > Create a page or open the existing page > In the ‘Title’ field, call it ‘Story Page’ (or whatever you want) > Under template suffix, select the page.story template > Save.

Now head over to Online Store > Customize Theme > Click “Home Page” at the top and scroll down till you see the page you created.

You will now see an option on the left saying Story page where you can open it up and see the content that you can add to this page. You will not find all the sections that you have on the homepage as this is a limitation of Shopify and not the theme, but we have added the most common to help create a great story page.

On Trial version and can’t access story template

So Shopify will only allow you to select the templates of your current published theme and since you are on a trail you can’t publish the theme. Not to worry, we got you. There is a way and we show you in our video guide below which will jump to the part where I explain it.

I still don’t see the Story Page template

If you still don’t see the Story page template on your theme, it’s likely you are on an older version of the theme. For our guide on updating your theme, you can follow this link.

Can I have more than one Story Page?

Our themes only support one story page, currently Shopify don’t have a native way to easily create different sections across templates.
That’s not to say what you are looking for isn’t possible to add. You could work with a developer in order to do this. There is an excellent Shopify developer community out there that can handle customisation work (requests to customise original code fall outside the scope of our free theme support).
