Create A Page Of Collections or Landing Page with custom content in Shopify for the Narrative Theme

Adding a custom page template to your Shopify Narrative theme will allow you to create a custom page with only collections you specify. This tutorial also allows you to add additional custom content to create a landing page. For instance, you can make a page called Jewelry and have only the Bracelet Collection, Necklace Collection, and Earrings Collections, then you could create another page called Designer Jewelry and list only the Designer Bracelet Collection, Designer Necklace Collection, and Designer Earrings Collections.

Page of Collections Shopify Brooklyn Theme

Custom Page Template

 You will Create a Custom Page template for each Custom Collections Page of Collections you need. For example: You could have a template for page.bracelet-collections.liquid and a template for page.jewelry-collections.liquid. You would then create a section for each changing the Schema name which is shown in green text within the code.

As always I recommend you make a backup of your Shopify Theme before beginning.

First You will Want to Create a New Page Template in Edit Code Area of Your Theme. Use the name shown in orange or create your own.

Add New Page Template Shopify

To create a template in theme code editor under Templates choose add a new template. Select page from the dropdown, then enter the name of your template. Copy just the portion in orange below for the name.

page.custom-content-1.liquid

Copy the 1 line of code in blue for page template.

{% section 'custom-content-1' %}

Find this code in the template: {{ page.content }} and place the cursor after the last bracket, then hit enter to create a new blank line below the code.

Paste the copied code in the line below the {{ page.content }}. 

Copy code in blue from <!-- /templates/page.liquid --> to the last </div> below. Note the section name in Green. each new page template will need the new unique section name.

<div class="page-width">
<header class="section-header text-center">
<h1 class="section-header__title h2">{{ page.title }}</h1>
</header>
<div class="grid">
<div class="grid__item medium-up--four-fifths medium-up--push-one-tenth">
<div class="rte">
{{ page.content }}
{% section 'custom-content-1' %}
</div>
</div>
</div>
</div>

Custom Section

Note: You Need a unique Schema(see green text below) name for each Section you create.  For example necklace-collections.liquid So you will need to create a new page and a new section for this custom collection and edit the new schema name in the new section.

Sample do not copy:

{% schema %}
{
"name": "necklace-collections",
"settings": [
{

To create a Section in theme code editor under Sections choose add a new Section. Select a name and save. Copy just the portion in orange below for the name and choose save.

Add a New Section Shopify

list-collections-template-1.liquid

 Delete the prepopulated code and replace with the code below:

Copy code in blue from {% commment%} to {%endschema%} below. The Code in green containing schema name can be changed when adding new sections.
