Template for Standard Pages

From Posstack.com Documentations
This guide explains how to customize your Shopify standard pages like Homepage, Collection, etc.

Steps to customize your Homepage:

How it works:

  • From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes.
  • Find the theme you want to edit, then click Customize.
  • From the dropdown menu in the Theme Editor, click Homepage and start adding the prebuilt sections that Easy Content provides.

Common customizations

Below are common customizations you might want to start with:

Add Section Settings

You should always add a Section Settings first.

Good to know: Why you need Section Settings:
  • To determine your ideal layouts (1-column, 2-column, 3-column, 4-column, or hierarchical layouts)
  • And to control your global configurations (full-width layout, mask color, mask image, background video, parallax animation, etc.)

Add new content blocks within a section

After adding a Section Settings, you can add many content blocks to the section you've created. These content blocks will be displayed in different positions within the section, depending on the Desktop/Mobile Layouts you configure.

Each template can have multiple sections, and each section has a specific variety of blocks you can add. View all sections available here.


Set the Text color

The Text color setting is located in the Section Settings. Enter the HEX color value or choose from your currently used color (if any). Then, the new text's color will be applied to all content blocks within this section.

Ensure you also update the Background Color or Container Background Color (under the same Section Settings panel) to pair with your new text's color.
Set the Background Color

Step 1: You can set the background color using CSS or Gradient.


If you add a HEX color value using the CSS option and want to change to the Gradient color, just remove the HEX color and switch to the Gradient mode.


The background color will be applied full-width to the whole section.

Ensure you adjust the Text Color (under the same Section Settings panel) to keep the text visible and highly contrasting.

Step 2 (Optional): Set the Padding Top/Padding Bottom (under the same Section Settings panel) to add desired horizontal space to the section.

Set the Container Background color


Use the Container Background Color setting to set the background color for the content area instead of the full-width background. You can define the background color using CSS or Gradient.

Ensure you set the Container Padding Top/Padding Bottom (under the same Section Settings panel) to add the desired horizontal space to the container.


Adjust the padding/margin of each section

The Easy Content Builder lets you adjust the space (padding and margin) between elements at two levels:

  • Section Settings level: refers to the global padding configurations for a section.
  • Block level: refers to the padding/margin of a specific block within a section (One section might come with multiple blocks in it.)
