Turn smart into Custom collections

Why do this? If it is getting to hard to specify the criteria for a collection (e.g. if you need “ands and Ors and nots”) then it is easier to turn the collection into a customer collection

Unfortunately we need to delete the existing collection to do this, so before you do it

  1. Create the new collection
  2. Copy over the collection description
  3. Make a note of all the products in the collection because you will need to manually re-addd them
  4. Check where that collection is in navigation – you will need to go back and update it.

 

e.g.

Women’s vests

Rename your old collection as the old one by changing both the title and handle (at the bottom of the page)

Create a new collection, with the same name – e.g. Women’s Vests

Copy across the Collection Description (if there is one), and also (if there is one)copy across the Collection Featured Image (you can open it on the old collection, right click on the image, and copy the url, or save it to desktop and re-import it if that is easier)

Now add the products to the collection:

Remember to SAVE!

 

The next step is to add the NEW collection to your navigation.

First figure out where it shows in the drop downs: - in this case “womens” then “Vests”

Go to Navigation (admin/link-lists)

Turn smart into Custom collections

And find the drop down list(s) in which the collection link is shown

Then use the drop down to choose the new collection, rather than the old one (marked with an X)

Remember to Save

Go to your website and test – remember you may need to refresh the screen.

Once you are happy, delete the old collection (the one with an x). This is important to avoid confusing google.

Two-step authentication - making your site secure
Two-step authentication - making your site secure

If you only do one thing for your site this week, make it turning on two-step authentication .

The good news - Shopify is very secure. The bad news, people aren't. So what do you do if one of your staff has used a weak password, and someone has guessed or pfished it, and got into your Shopify site? Or a virus on your machine has sent your password to the bad guys?

The first thing to do is DON'T PANIC - running around with your hair on fire is a natural response to that sinking feeling, but will make things worse. Jumping on to an infected machine and changing your password just gives them your new password.
