To add a section, go to the left-hand menu and scroll down to Add section.
Moving a Section
To move a section, simply drag-and-drop it into a new position in the section menu.

If you wish to take your section off your storefront without removing it permanently, select the eye icon to change its visibility.
Removing a Section
To remove a section, select on the content block to expand the section. Then, click the ellipsis in the top right-hand corner, and select Remove section.
What are the Different Types of Section?
The Announcement bar is an optional section that, when enabled, permanently sits at the top of every page on your storefront.
With its eye-catching position on your storefront, it's the perfect place to display important information and incentives for your customers, such as announcements, promotions, sales, and news.
The Header section is a permanent section in your storefront. It is visible on every page of your store, and features your brand's logo, menu navigation, account, search bar, language and currency selector, and shopping cart.
The Footer is a permanent section that appears at the very bottom of every page on your storefront.
By adding content blocks containing text, a menu, a newsletter sign-up, social media icons, or an image, your footer is a great place to put essential information such as terms and conditions, returns policies, contact information, and accepted payment methods.
A Custom HTML section is a versatile and powerful way for you to personalize your theme and increase the possibilities of your storefront’s layout and content.
Simply enter your HTML into a content block, and then move the content blocks around to arrange them how you wish.
Your blog is a place for you to tell the story of your brand, share your company ethos, and build a rapport with your customers by allowing them to comment and interact with your posts.
Engaging readers is not only a great way for you to spread the word about your products, but it's also deeply beneficial for search engine optimization (SEO).
Note: Your blogs must be correctly set up in order to display content within this section - click here to read our guide: How to Set Up Blogs.
A Collection list section is where you can advertise collections of your choice on your homepage - simply add them into a content block, and rearrange them as you wish.
This can be a great way to upsell additional products or services that your customer may not be aware you sell.
A Featured collection section is where you display your products from one particular collection.
This is a great way to advertise best-sellers, new releases, or hidden gems - and it's also a great way to upsell related products.
A Features section is a customizable grid of content blocks that you can drag and drop into position, allowing you to display a collage of content about your brand or products in bite-sized amounts.
Image with Text
An Image with Text section allows you to display a feature image opposite a block of text.
This is a simple yet eye-catching way to highlight keywords related to your products, collections, and overall brand, with the option to link these to another page.
Image with Text Overlay
An Image with Text Overlay section allows you to display a feature image with text over the top (and an optional button linking to other pages).
This can either be an excellent feature section in its own right, or simply a creative way to separate the other sections of your page - while also displaying a description of what your store has to offer.
A Slideshow section is one of the most versatile additions to a storefront. With its ever-moving slides, this is a great way to display pivotal information about your store in a fast-paced and eye-catching way.
A Navigation list allows you to display a navigation menu of your choice horizontally across your storefront - this can be a great way to display collections, or to simply break up the homepage.
Your Featured product section is where you can display one particular product from your store - this is a great way to advertise a new release, a best-seller, or a hidden gem.
Shop the Look
Shop the Look is a section that you can add to your homepage in order to advertise multiple products as shown in one photograph.
Your Newsletter section is a space for your customers to receive updates about your latest company information, product news, and offers.
This section is compact enough that your customers can simply enter their contact details into the email field, and then continue scrolling through your store.
A Promotional grid section is where you can add images with a text overlay into content blocks, and then link the images to the collections or products that they relate to.
A Scrolling text section is where you can add text to scroll from right to left across your store - this is a great way to advertise promotions and break up the other sections on the page.
By adding extra content blocks, you can alternate the text that appears within the scroll.
Your Map section is where you can display your physical store's location using the Google Map platform.
Establishing your online storefront alongside your brick-and-mortar outlet can solidify your brand’s credibility.
A Rich text section is a simple but versatile addition to your storefront - useful for adding a simple piece of copy or information.
Your Video section is a great way to engage your customers in an eye-catching and comprehensive format.
This is the perfect place for you to put product trailers, video testimonials, staff interviews, or documentary insights into how your products are made.
Video with Text Overlay
A Video with Text Overlay section displays a muted, autoplaying video on a loop - immediately catching your customer's eye, and leaving your storefront looking polished and professional.
