Custom Page Templates

Pages created in the storefront dashboard (Storefront>Pages) can have very diverse design requirements that often require custom layouts. In this guide, we'll go over some of the best practices for creating and managing custom product templates.

Page Templates Location

In the templates/pages directory of a theme, theme developers can edit/manage the custom page templates.

Page Templates Location
pages
  └── page.html (default)
  └── page.<custom1>.html
  └── page.<custom2>.html

Extend & Override

  1. Create a Custom Page Template

    Create a new page template in the templates>pages directory with the following naming convention:

    Custom Page Template Naming
    templates/pages/page.<custom>.html
    

    Templates that follow this naming convention will be selectable from the page detail area in the storefront dashboard.

  2. Extend & Override Default Page Template

    As a best practice, you should extend the default page template to override the necessary template blocks to achieve your customization with a limited amount of duplicate code.

    Example Custom Page Template
    {% extends "templates/pages/page.html" %}
    
    {% block content %}
        // Custom Page Content Template Code
    {% endblock %}
    

    This strategy will simplify the creation and management of custom page templates so you can focus on the customized areas for the new custom product template.

  3. Select Template for Page

    On your page of choice, select your newly created template as the Theme Template to activate the template for your page in the storefront.

Note

You are not limited to overriding the existing template blocks in the default page template. You can create and add your own to the default template to overide in your custom template. For example, adding {% block my_custom_block %}{% endblock %} to page.html, around any area you wish to customize, will allow you to overide it in the custom template
