Sections and Templates
These two tabs offer beautiful pre-built resources that you can utilize to accelerate your design process.
A “section” is a section of a page that can contain multiple elements while a “template” means the full content of a page.
You can preview or insert a block or template onto your current page by hovering the mouse over the item until the action buttons appear.
My Libary section is currently being developed and is expected to be available in the coming days. We will provide updates on its progress, so please stay tuned for more information. If you encounter any challenges while transferring the template between two stores in different versions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our support team for further assistance.
