Symmetry theme support

Product page

To edit the product page, you will need to open up any product from inside the theme editor or select the product page from the dropdown at the top. Please note, all the settings will be applied to all products, not just the one you are on, you can’t have specific settings for specific products. This is a limitation on Shopify and not the theme which they hope to address in future updates.

Product page layout

Symmetry has some key settings which affect the general layout of the page. You can choose to have your images underneath the main image, or you can have them show as thumbnails along the left side.

You can also increase the size of the images to your liking from small, medium, Large.

Along with this, you can change the location of the description. You can choose to have it align over to the right under the add to cart info, or have it going across the bottom of the images.

Pre Order Template (pre OS 2.0)

We have added a pre-order template feature into Symmetry. To find out how to set this up, you will want to watch the guide below.

Pre Order Template (OS 2.0)

Variant Display Style

There are two options for Variant Display. Listed & Dropdown. To select one of these on the product page, scroll down and select theme settings > scroll till you see Variant Display


How can I make my product images smaller?

You will find an option to set the size of the images under the media settings.

How do I set up Product tabs/accordion pages?

This feature was released in version 4.11.12 of Symmetry so if you are running an older version you will need to update the theme. You will set this up by going to any product inside the theme editor, opening the product page section on the left, scroll down till you locate the description section. From here you can set up the tabs.

Can I hide unselected images?

Shopify does not include a way of filtering thumbnail images to ones related to the current variant. For example, showing only the blue dresses when you select a blue variant.

Can I add videos to product images?

Symmetry has been updated in February 2020 to support Shopify media types. If your theme is older than this, you will need to update your theme in order for this to work. This cannot be added to older versions of Symmetry. For information on how this works and what to do in order to make it work, you can find out more through this link

You will locate the checkbox to disable or enable image zoom here in these settings. You cannot set the strength of the zoom.
