How to remove GemPages code from my theme

1. Revert to Shopify default templates

If you are using GemPages templates as the default template for your homepages, product pages, and collection pages on your live store, please revert them to Shopify’s default templates by:

  • Go to Shopify Admin > Online Store > Live Theme > Action > Edit Code.

  • Search for these files in the search bar

    • index.liquid for homepages
    • product.liquid for product pages
    • collection.liquid for collection pages

  • Choose "Older versions", select the "Original version" and then "Save".


By doing this, your live store will be switched back to Shopify default templates, while GemPages templates are saved for future use. If you want to completely remove GemPages from your theme, please view the next section.
