General Settings

Theme Styles

Our Expression theme includes in 4 styles - Innovate, Oxford, Naturale and Ocean

These demo stores aim to illustrate the variety of looks possible with the theme. Choose your theme style in the General 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 General tab. Your section specific settings won't be affected.

More information about theme styles can be found in this Shopify article

Product listings

Check the Use image rollover option to show your second product image when a user hovers over it

Display a small extract of your product descriptions using the Show text description under thumbnails option

If your products have a single variant, you can enable your shoppers to buy them directly from your homepage or collection pages by checking the Show 'purchase' button option

Static Sections

Header section

If you have a lot of menu items, you can free up some extra space by using the Show search/cart info above navigation row option to move your search box into your header

The 'Login' link is controlled by whether customer accounts are active on your Store, however you can check Show 'Register' link in header to add a 'Register' link if you have the Login enabled


You can display a full-width slideshow (see Ocean), or a reduced width slideshow plus a single, still image (see Oxford

The theme adjusts its layout automatically, simply add an image to Companion Content to use the reduced slideshow or remove the image to use the large-width layout


Add images, page content or blog posts to your Homepage Sidebar. Note the homepage sidebar is completely separate from the one that appears on your other pages

If you don't have any sidebar content, your sidebar will not appear and your products will show four per row

Footer section

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

Add products, text or video blocks to build up your homepage content area as required. Note there are no limits to the number of collections you can add, but your performance will generally start to suffer if you exceed 50 products in total.

Context Sensitive Sections


The sidebar settings will appear on all pageblog, and article pages, please note this sidebar is SHARED, and changes you make to one will affect all the others. The homepage sidebar is completely separate

The shared page sidebar includes more options that the homepage one, offering the same features plus cart summary and featured product blocks
