How to switch between your original and designed product pages

By default, your store's Product page will use your Shopify default theme template. This article will guide you through the steps to replace it with the Product page you just created using GemPages and vice versa.

Replace The Theme Template With The GemPages Template

Step 1: Go to GemPages Dashboard > Product Pages, locate the Product page you would like to set as the default

Step 2: Click on the 3-dot icon to show more options. Next, select “Make Default


Step 3: A new window will appear, prompting you to confirm the action.


Click on the blue “Make Default” button to set this Product page template as the default one for your Online Store.

Otherwise, hit “Cancel” to abort.


After making default a GemPages template, you need to go into the page's Editor and enable the Dynamic option. This will make the Product module as well as all of its child elements work dynamically for your entire product inventory, and display correct product information correspondingly to the chosen product.


Revert Back To Theme Template

Step 1: Go to GemPages Dashboard > Product Pages and locate the Shopify Default Template, which is always located at the top of your list.


Step 2:  Click on the 3-dot icon to show more options. Next, select “Back to Original”.



Step 3: Hit the blue “Back to Original” button to proceed with the action.

Step 2: Search for the “product.liquid” file and open it.



In case you use Theme 2.0, please look for product.json instead of the product.liquid file.

Step 3: On the right-side editing panel, click on “Older versions” and select “Original” from the drop-down menu. Each version in this menu includes an exact timestamp of when it was created.



Step 4: Hit Save and exit out of the theme editor.
