Collection list grid

The Collection list grid section displays a grid of all or selected collections. See the collection list slider to display your collections as a rotatable carousel in one row.

Set up section

Add this section to any template (except Checkout) and re-order its position. You can use this section multiple times on the same page with different content and settings.

Note: New sections will appear on all pages that use the same template. To add sections to specific pages only, learn how to create and assign new templates.

Steps

In your theme editor (Customize):

  1. Select a Template to edit from the dropdown menu in the top bar.

  2. In the side panel, click (+) Add section and select Collection list grid.

  3. Change the order of your sections by using the drag and drop handles ⋮⋮

Add multiple Collections to display in a grid with featured collection images that link to those collections.

We recommend adding a Collection image in your Shopify Admin. If no image is set, Stiletto will use a product image from that collection by default.

Steps

In your theme editor (Customize):

  1. Click on Collection list grid to open the section settings.

  2. Under the Collection listing, use the Select collections button to check off all the collections you want to feature in the grid.

  3. Select the Number of columns for both desktop and mobile

    The size of the collection images will change according to the number of columns.

  4. In the settings side panel, hover over the Collection list and use the drag and drop handles ⋮⋮ to reorder your collections.

  5. Click Save.

Collections list style

Customize the shape of the collection images, and the position, style, and colors of the titles.

Steps

In your theme editor (Customize):

  1. Click on Collection list grid and scroll down to the Collection listing settings.

  2. To make your collection images a uniform shape and size, select a Collection listing aspect ratio to crop all images to Square, Landscape, or Portrait.

    The default Natural setting will display the original orientation of each image.

    Example of aspect ratio shapes: Square, Landscape, and Portrait
    Example of aspect ratio shapes: Square, Landscape, and Portrait
  3. Set the Collection listing title style to Overlay the image or position it Beneath the image.

  4. For the Overlay title style, set the Background style to a Solid color or a Gradient.

    Use the color selectors to change the Overlay title background and Overlay title color.

    We recommend using WebAIM's contrast checker when matching colors to make sure your text is clear and readable for everyone.

  5. Click Save.

Section headings and button

Add section headings and an optional button that can link to all your blog posts.

    The link is set to "All collections" by default. You can customize your list of collections in the Collections list template.

  5. Change the Button label (e.g. "View all collections").

    Leave this field blank to remove the button.

    The most effective button labels ask customers to do something (e.g. Get started, Join us, Shop now). To learn more, read "What is a Call to Action?"
