Choose a grid or magazine layout.
Choose the description position (separate row, above or below the cart button) and use tabs and a size chart to make it easier for customers to understand your products.

The Boost theme shows products in your articles, blog page and homepage blog section, as soon as you add links to products anywhere in your blog article content.

Tip: Collection background colors
The Boost theme includes the option to select a background color for a collection in the home page promotional collection, collection page featured header and the collections listing page. Remember to choose the same background color for a given collection to build a consistent brand feel for the collection across your store.
Tip: Mega Menu creation
To make mega dropdowns, like the one in this demo store, you need to create Nested Navigation as follows.
Under the menu item you'd like the mega menu to dropdown from, add as many title links as you like. Each of these title links must then have their own items nested inside for the dropdown menu to turn into a mega dropdown menu
You mega menu will auto-magically be created with the above setup :)
Tip: Shopify product reviews
The theme includes built in code to support Shopify product reviews (apps.shopify.com/product-reviews) on the home page, product pages and collection pages.
