Streamline Support: Can I add another Page with its own sections?

This documentation is for older versions of Streamline and no longer relevant to most merchants. Only continue reading if you're on a version before 4.0 of Streamline.

For details on template creation in versions 4.0 and higher, view the documentation here.

This is possible if you are comfortable duplicating files and making a few minor changes. This feature applies to all versions of Streamline.

Note: this process can become cumbersome with a large (10+) number of unique Pages. We recommend talking to a Shopify Expert to see if another solution may fit your content needs. Because Shopify was not designed to use modular sections outside of the homepage, support for this customization will be limited to this guide.

In short, Shopify saves your section content by the filename of the section. This means we'll need to copy the current section and template files and rename them to be unique for each page that we want to have sections on.

In this example, we'll be setting up a new "About Us" page with sections.

Create a new template

  1. Open the code editor, find the Templates folder and click Add new template
  2. Choose page in the first dropdown. Select liquid and call it something you will recognize later, in our case it will be sections-about-us
  3. Replace all the code in the text box with {% section 'page-sections-about-us-template' %} (again including the recognizable name in the filename) and click Save

Create a new section

  1. In the code editor's sidebar, find the Sections folder and click Add new section
  2. Name the section with the exact same name from step 3 above, in our case page-sections-about-us-template
  3. Remove the code in the text box
  4. Find the Sections folder again and click on page-sections-template.liquid
  5. Right-click on the code, click Select All, copy it to the clipboard, open up the section file we just created, paste the code in and click Save

You can now follow the usual steps to apply your new template to a Page and begin adding sections from the Theme Editor.
