The Page Title block will simply show the original page title that has been entered on the Page in the Shopify admin. In the theme settings, you can choose the heading alignment.

You can also choose what form fields show, as well as add up to two custom fields depending on your needs. In our example here we added a custom field for Order # and Return or Exchange?. You can use more than one contact form on the page if needed for different purposes.
Image with text overlay
The Image with Text Overlay block is very similar to the section on the homepage. It works great as a header on products and also really great as a call-to-action at the very end of Advanced Layout Product Pages. You add a full-width background image then you can add a heading and subheading.
Text columns with images
The Text Columns with Images block is very much like the section on the homepage. It allows you to feature 1-3 text columns with or without images. Each column also has an option for a heading and text content. Each column can be a link.
Image with text
The Image with Text block allows adding a heading, text, and button, paired with an image. The position of the image can be set to either the left or right side of the text. The width of the image can be changed from 33%, 50% or 66% and will automatically adjust the amount of text room next to it. The text can be aligned left or center. A button displays when a link is provided that can link customers to a page.
The Featured Collection block will allow you to choose a collection and it will show the first 2-30 products in the selected collection. The product layout can be either in a grid or carousel. If using the carousel option then the carousel's control styles can be changed to dots or arrows.
The Collection List block is a list of selected collections to feature. First, choose your Collection List settings, choose a grid of 2, 3 or 4 collections. Then, under content select each collection to feature up to four.
The Featured Video block allows you to feature a YouTube or Vimeo video, you have the option to show it as full-width and add a heading.
The Map block can be used to show your store location and business hours, to use Google Maps you will need to get an API
The Newsletter block allows you to include a subscription form for a newsletter, it also shows your social media icons.
The Accordion can be used for page frequently asked questions, or a cleaner way to organize further details like Returns, Shipping, Materials, etc. You can add up to 10 drop downs to the accordion if you don't want to show all ten just remove the Item Heading and it will not show.
The Rich Text section allows you to use text content on the homepage. You can use the rich text box to type your message or in content from a Shopify page.
