General information about sectioned and non-sectioned themes

The sectioned theme is a new theme allowing you to create and arrange the layout of your e-store’s websites while the non-sectioned theme is an older one published before October 2016 without Section directory. Therefore, to check which theme you are using, you go to Edit code page, if files exist in Section directory, it means that sectioned theme is being utilized or vice versa.

In addition, a sectioned theme will show two tabs at the top of editor titled Sections and General Settings while a non-sectioned theme has only one column in theme editor consisting of tools or functions like general, colors and fonts, headers, footers, collection pages and so one.

Attention with cart template

These steps are not customized for drawer and pop-up style and only work for a cart page. In case you use a cart drawer or pop-up, you have to change your cart-style to page in theme editor. Then you add a product to the cart in theme preview and open Cart page to view your cart setting.
