5. Testament Theme: Choosing the Global Theme Settings

In this article, we will go through the process of choosing the global Theme Settings, like fonts, colors, etc. 

What are Theme Settings?

Theme settings are global configuration options for your theme that affect the website across all pages, like Colors, Fonts, etc. General settings also hold options for non-specific pages or content sections. The available settings in the theme settings tab will stay the same no matter what site page your viewing in the theme editor.

Favicon - Here you can upload a small icon that is shown in the URL bar of your browser. This image must be square and will be scaled down to 32px x 32px

Search - Lets you choose to limit search results to products only.

Colors - Here you will set up the global color palette for all shared content sections your store, header, navigation, general, product icons, product page, footer.

Typography - Here you will choose the fonts used for Headers, Navigation, and content within in your store and set specific font sizes, decorations, and alignment for your content.

Global - Here you will find shared options for products as they appear within your collection pages and the home page of your store where a featured collection is shown. Like switching product images on hover, showing vendor on product lists, and enabling quick view. You will also be able to adjust the "Keyboard Focus" in this setting, which by default highlights where the user is focused on the site in a blue color.

Cart page - Here you are given the option to enable order notes and choose the cart type (Page or Modal). 

  • The Page option will bring the user to the cart page right away whenever an item is added to the cart.
  • The Modal option will open a popup with the cart that can be viewed and closed all on the same page that it was added.

Social media - Here you can enable the Social icons and add your own links to direct customers to your social accounts.

Newsletter - Here you can configure the email popup that customers will see when entering your store. All emails captured from this popup will be added to the customer's section of your Shopify admin.

Checkout - Here you can configure color schemes and content options for your checkout. Shopify's checkout looks much different than other pages on your site, so it's important to configure these settings.
