Finding Shopify Theme Files

How to find Shopify theme files on custom themes.

Shopify houses over 100 different themes to style and customise your webshop. Each theme works in the same way, that you customise the theme files to get a given result on your store, however, the theme file names change from theme to theme.

 

How To Find Theme Files

Shopify gives you a search field to easily and quickly find the theme file you are looking for. If you do not know the name of the file you are looking for, you can use the search field to help locate it. For example if you are looking for the file that has the code for the search page, it is likely to have 'search' in the file name.

 

How To Identify If you Are In The Correct Theme File

If you are unsure of whether you have found the correct file you can compare the HTML in the theme file to the HTML on the relevant page to see if they match.

This can be done on Google Chrome by right clicking on any section of the page and selecting 'Inspect'.

 

You can then inspect the HTML on the page and check if the class/ID of elements are the same in the file as on the page.
