This article provides an overview of Label theme's sections.
Label includes Templates for building common store pages like the Home page and Product page. Within each template, Label provides reusable Sections and Blocks for adding elements into your store's pages - refer to Theme structure.
Instead of spending time recreating the same elements for every page, use Label's templates, sections and blocks in Theme editor for a convenient way to build store pages quickly, and to maintain a consistent design across your store.
In the previous video, the section settings menu for a store's home page is displayed in Theme editor. The Drag icon is selected to rearrange a Featured collection section above the Collection list.
A typical store has different types of pages, like Product and Blog post pages. Label provides a template for each type of page. For example:
the Home page template defines what's displayed on your store's home page.
the FAQ page template defines what's displayed on the frequently asked questions page, etc.
Label's templates are comprised of sections and blocks.
Section. Within a template, a container for an area of content, like a header or footer, is called a section.
Block. A block is an element of content inside a section, like a product, a video, or an image with text.
To learn how themes are structured, refer to:
Label contains default and additional page templates.
Default. All Shopify themes include a set of default page templates for creating common store pages. Label provides pre-configured store pages, created from its default page templates, including a home page and checkout page.
Additional. Additional page templates are used to create store pages that are unique to Label. To use Label's additional page templates, you must assign products or pages to them. Refer to Shopify help: Templates, and Enable the Lookbook page template.
