How do I get the latest theme version to see the new features?
Previous purchasers can get a FREE download of the latest theme version for the same store for which it was bought. This Shopify article explains more. Versions released from 3rd April 2018 include 6 new home page section types.
Can my header image be a slideshow?
Yes, the entire full screen width header section is a slideshow. You can also add constrained-width slideshows elsewhere into your homepage.
Can the product images fit the width of the screen ?
No, the theme was not designed for that, you would need to hire a developer to custom write code for your store.
Can I change the Shopify and Clean Themes text in the footer?
Yes, you can change static text labels in your store in the Language Editor
Can I change the payment icons?
Payment icons are pulled directly from Shopify based on your payment settings.
Can I shorten blog articles on my homepage?
Yes, create a summary by clicking on the Add Excerpt link below your blog article content.
What size should my images be?
This article explains more about image sizing in our themes.
Where are my product page settings?
Navigate to your product detail page to see the section settings. Other product settings that apply across your store can be found under the general theme settings tab.
How do I change "Add to cart" to "Buy" ?
You can change nearly all text labels in your store by going to Online Store → Themes → Actions → Edit languages
Can I add a contact form ?
Yes. This will send an email containing the contact information to the store's owner. To use it, create a normal page, like you would for an About Us page, for your contact form. After creating and saving this page, you will see a new drop down appear to allow you to select the contact template for this page.
Does it support Instagram?
Yes absolutely, the theme includes a dedicated homepage Instagram section.
Our documentation is for the latest theme versions - 2.4 and above. Should you need guidance with an earlier version, please send us a support request via the contact form.
General Theme Settings
These demo stores aim to illustrate the variety of looks possible with the theme. Choose your theme style in the Theme Settings tab. The style settings will affect cross store elements such as your fonts, cart behavior, and social media icons. Applying a theme style will overwrite any existing settings in your Theme Settings tab. Your section specific settings won't be affected.
More information about theme styles can be found in this Shopify article.
The theme includes a fixed 'Shop' link that appears next to your cart and search icons in the docked header. You can change both the text and target of this link with the Quick Link settings.
Add a message right at the top of your store to advertise key promotions using the announcement bar.
The fixed large header slideshow allows you to add up to five high quality images to display in succession on your homepage, together with up to two lines of overlay text and a call to action button.
There aren't any settings for the 'Clean Themes' / 'Shopify' messages, however you can easily edit these or remove them altogether in your language editor.
Dynamic Homepage Sections
Choose a predominant aspect ratio for your product images to produce a nice clean even grid layout for your homepage products: Portrait, Landscape, Square
Add blocks of images in a number of different arrangements, but be sure to select a layout that makes sense! i.e. add 2 images set to half width, four at quarter width, one one third and one two thirds, etc.
Add a map row to direct customers to your real world store. Show a google map or your own image. The image position option allows you to control the crop of your image on desktop.
Context Sensitive Sections
Some theme settings won't show until you're on the page in the theme editor preview window to which they relate - product, collection, article and blog settings all fall into this category.
In the Alchemy theme each page type can have a specific header image which will be shown on all pages of that specific type.
You can specify the number of products to show per row and the predominate aspect ratio for your product images.
Choose from a full page or two-column layout for your product pages
