If you're keen to create a captivating gallery for your Shopify store, you're in the right place. With Shopify Themes 2.0, it's become easier than ever to add custom features to your e-commerce site. One such customisation is the integration of Sauce galleries using the special Sauce blocks designed specifically for Shopify 2.0 themes.
Follow this step-by-step guide to seamlessly integrate Sauce galleries into your Shopify store.
- A Shopify store running on a 2.0 theme
- Administrative access to your Shopify store
- An active Sauce account
Step 1: Log in to Your Shopify Admin Panel
Access your Shopify admin panel by logging into your Shopify account. Once logged in, navigate to the Online Store option from the left sidebar.
Step 2: Choose Your Theme
From the Online Store menu, click on Themes. Here, you'll find the theme that is currently active on your store. Click on the Customise button next to it.
Step 3: Access the Theme Customisation Interface
The Customise button will take you to the theme customisation interface. This is where you can add, remove, or edit various elements of your theme.
Step 4: Add a New Sauce Block
Navigate to the section where you'd like to add your Sauce gallery:
1. Click on the Add Section button (usually represented by a "+" icon).
2. Click on the Apps button to see the available App blocks. You may have to scroll down to see all of the available Sauce blocks.
3. From the list of available "Apps" blocks, select **Sauce Homepage Gallery** Block.
**Note:** If you don't see the Sauce Gallery Block, ensure that the Sauce app is installed on your Shopify store and that you are using a 2.0 theme.
Step 5: Rearrange the Sauce Gallery Block
By default, your freshly added gallery block will be positioned at the bottom of your section. To move it to your preferred location, simply follow these steps:
Locate the small dots that appear at the top-right corner of the apps section.
Click and hold on these dots.
While holding, drag the entire section to the spot on the page where you want your gallery to appear.
These steps will help you effortlessly position your Sauce Gallery Block exactly where you want it on your page.
Step 6: Configure Your Sauce Gallery Block
After adding the Sauce Gallery Block, a new settings panel will appear on your screen's right-hand side.
Begin by customising your gallery. Choose your desired background colour and set the spacing around your gallery to fit your aesthetic.
For more advanced customisation options like header text, layout styles, button configurations, and media preferences, click the "Customise" link. This will direct you to the Sauce back office, where you can make fine-tuned adjustments to achieve the exact look you're aiming for. If prompted, log in to your Sauce account to synchronise your gallery settings.
Step 7: Save Changes
After configuring your Sauce gallery as desired, click on the Save button at the top-right corner of the theme customisation interface.
Step 8: Preview or Publish
1. To check how the new Sauce gallery looks on your site, click **Preview**.
2. If everything looks good, hit the **Publish** button to make the changes live on your website.
If you encounter issues while installing the Sauce gallery, consider the following:
- Ensure you are using a Shopify 2.0 compatible theme.
- Make sure you have installed the Sauce app on your Shopify store.
- Double-check that you have an active Sauce account and that it is correctly synced with your Shopify store.
