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 customization

Below are common customization you might want to start with:

Add Section Settings block

You should always add a Section Settings first. Why you need this block:

  • 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.)
*Learn how to add a Section Settings block: read the setup guide.
Add new content blocks within a section

Blocks refer to the prebuilt content blocks the Easy Content Builder app provides, such as Accordion, Before & After Slider, Video, Featured Products, Custom HTML, etc. Each template can have multiple sections, and each section has a specific variety of blocks you can add.

After adding a Section Settings, you can add any content blocks made available to the section you've created.

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.)
