The changes you can make to the Default Template for your Theme are limited. If you want to make more significant changes, however, and don’t understand exactly how and where to code, EComposer builder is a fantastic choice. The question is, how does one go about doing this in EComposer? We’ll demonstrate how much customization EComposer provides for your Blog Template.

1. How to build a new Blog template (Built with EComposer)

By default, Shopify provides only one template for all Blogs of your store. This template will overwrite your current theme template and the changes you made will apply to all your Blogs Template.

In order to make a new Blog Template, please follow these steps:

  1. From App dashboard –> Blog Pages
  2. Click on Manage Blog List
  3. Create Blog List
