Custom liquid

This guide describes setting up your store's Custom liquid section.

Use the section to add Liquid code, like app snippets, to create advanced customizations for your store. Refer to Shopify developers: Liquid reference. We recommend hiring an expert if you're not comfortable editing Liquid code.

In the previous video, Liquid code is entered into a custom Liquid section textbox. The code is rendered on a store's home page as formatted text.

For general guidance with modifying sections, refer to Sections overview.
