Sections theme architecture released in developer preview

Effective January 23, 2020


We are proud to announce a developer preview of our new sections theme architecture. As part of this developer preview you'll be able to:

  • Define new theme frames to customize store headers and footers on different pages
  • Customize page sections to create unique displays and formatting
  • Create custom content sections that can be added to and removed from pages through the Shopify Admin
  • Edit pages individually or globally, as master pages, with multi-page editing

This developer preview is limited to adding sections to product pages, but upcoming iterations will extend this functionality to all storefront pages. You can learn more about working with the new section architecture by visiting our Help Centre guides.

This developer preview is being released as part of our new online store design experience partner beta. In order to implement sections on product pages, you will need to edit your theme to conform to the new theme architecture. To see an example of this implementation, you can download our sections-compatible Debut theme.

For any questions regarding the online store design experience partner beta visit our dedicated forum.
