This article pertains to Out of the Sandbox themes without support for Shopify Sections. Pre-Section theme releases are as follows: Turbo, Mobilia 4.4.4, Parallax 2.4.4, Retina 3.2.3, and Responsive 5.2.2.
Each Out of the Sandbox theme includes a 'Home page' section in the Customize Theme section of your shop. Go to Online Store > Themes > Customize Theme > click the blue 'Customize theme' button. In the Theme Customizer, you will see the 'Home page' tab. You can use the drop-down menus under 'Home page' to assign the content and order for the homepage of your shop.
Adding content to the homepage is a two step process.
Step one: From the Theme Customizer, assign content to each 'Home page - ' section. For example, to display a Twitter feed, first provide a Twitter username under the 'Home page - Twitter' tab. To add banners to the homepage, upload banner images and headings, subheading, and alternative text under 'Home page - banner images.' Other 'Home page - ' sections include the slideshow, featured promotions, featured links, collections, the Instagram feed, and featured blog.
The options will vary from theme to theme. Below is what you could expect to see in the Retina theme:
Note: If your homepage is not displaying a section, please double-check that the section is listed under the 'Home Page' tab, content is selected under the corresponding tab. For example, check a Twitter username is provided under 'Home page - Twitter' and that section is assigned a position on the homepage under 'Home page'.
