Blog posts template

The Blog Post template provides the design and layout of your blog post articles. Publish Blog posts to share store announcements, updates, and featured content, and help increase organic traffic to your site.

This guide explains how to set up the blog posts page template using theme sections, and includes tips and recommendations to get you started.

Quick setup

For the blog posts template, you first need to add blog posts in your Shopify admin. Then, in the theme editor, you can customize the posts template.

Tip | Check out Shopify's guide on How to start a blog and grow your audience.

Add blog posts in Shopify admin

Before editing the Blog post template, you need to add at least one blog post in your Shopify admin.

The blog posts template will use your blog post's Featured imageTitleContentTagsPublished date and Author.

Admin | Blog posts are a Shopify feature. See Shopify's guides to create a blog and add blog posts.

Edit blog posts template

The Blogs post template includes a default layout to get you started. You can customize the Content width and the Featured image. The blocks for TitleContent, and Pagination are used to display information from your Shopify admin and do not have additional settings.

The template also includes a social sharing button to let visitors share your post on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.

STEPS

In your theme editor (Customize):

  1. Click Enable full width image to make the image span across the entire screen or browser.
  2. (Optional.) Choose to use the Original image height (without cropping) or set a Custom image height.

  4. Use Image focal points to specify the main focus of the image. The focal point of your image will remain centered and within frame when your site adapts to different screen sizes.
  5. We recommend using the From image setting since each blog post will have a different featured image.

Enable post comments

In the Shopify admin, you can choose to enable comments. Cornerstone displays a simple comment form with fields for Name, Email, and Message.

Admin | Blog posts comments are a Shopify feature. See Shopify's guides for Managing comments on blog posts.

Edit default theme text

In the Shopify admin, you can change the default text used in the blog posts template. Use the Default theme content editor to edit or remove text to match the tone and needs of your store.

Note | Do not change any text that's inside curly brackets {{ }} or HTML tags < >. Changing this text will break the functionality of the theme.
