Showcase Theme

The latest versions of our Showcase theme support Sections so the layout of the theme settings might appear quite different if you are upgrading. Please see this Shopify article for an introduction to working with sections.


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.

Can I add other fonts?

Yes, but you will need to hire a developer to add other typefaces to your store.

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 tab.

Does it support Instagram?

Yes, you can show Instagram as a row on the home page.

How do I make my slideshow images smaller?

Crop the image to change the shape. A portrait or square image results in a really tall slideshow. A thin letterbox image creates a compact slideshow.

Showcase Theme Settings

Our documentation is for the latest theme versions - 2.0 and above. Should you need guidance with an earlier version, please send us a support request via the contact form.

General Settings

The shared 'General settings' allow you to specify fonts, colours, social media links, favicons and currencies to show on your storefront.

Theme Styles

Our Showcase theme includes in 4 styles - Beard, Betty, Luna and Native

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

Static Sections

Header section

The header bar can be docked (ie locked to the top of the screen as the user scrolls down your store) using the Enable fixed position

Showcase theme settings - column menus - Clean themes for Shopify

Use the Collection menus section to add up to four navigation menus to the top of your menu showing the featured images from each linked item

Dynamic Homepage Sections

Featured video

Add videos from YouTube or Vimeo. You can set the videos to autoplay as soon as the page loads

Check the Full page width option to display your video without any border or margin

Image with text

Image with text and Image with text overlay sections allow for the addition of call to action buttons. The Two images section allow for linking of the whole image blocks

Featured Products

Add a collection of products to show on your homepage - you can select from an even 'Grid' or Masonry-driven 'Collage'-type Product layout 

Context Sensitive Sections

Some theme settings are only visible when you're on the right page - product options only show when you're viewing a product page, collection options on collection pages, etc

Collection list

Choose from grid or collage for your collection listing pages, the same as featured products on your homepage

Collection page

Enable infinite scroll to load in new products as the user reaches the end of a page

Product page

Use the overriding Description alignment setting to change the arrangement of your product description within the restricted reading width column on your product pages.

Try the Use box-options to display your variants as clickable links rather than drop-down boxes

Change the Cart type here to toggle whether the user is taken to the Cart page immediately after clicking the buy button on if they remain on the current page (this option is sometimes known as AJAX add to cart)
