Online Store 2.0
Use the latest version of the Shopify Online Store for best compatibility and more flexibility to design and structure your store.
Up until now, merchants have been limited in how they represent their businesses on Shopify, with the flexibility of sections being limited to only the home page. Code edits, elaborate workarounds with blocks, or custom apps were needed to achieve a similar effect across other pages. That all changes with Online Store 2.0 launched in October 2021 and sections on every page. Now, merchants can add sections to all pages, not just the home page, unlocking a range of new opportunities to personalize every aspect of a store.
With the updated theme architecture also comes an update to how apps integrate with the storefront. With the previous Online Store 1.0, there’s no structured, end-to-end solution for apps to easily integrate with themes. Developers are left to build integration logic for every existing theme and host assets themselves, making it hard to build features that work consistently across all themes and are fast anywhere in the world. To solve these challenges, Shopify introducing theme app extensions for developers, allowing you to extend apps into merchants’ themes via app blocks.
