So When you will release the NEXT update for Dawn theme after 7.0.1 ?? when is the next release date for the next version after the 7.0.1 ??? Because I don't want keep losing more money paying for the developers to transfer my old content and codes and customization's for the next update !! You must make the update doesn't effect the previous code modification; its very frustration process.

Reply from Shopify Nov 17, 2022

Hello! Our engineers are hard at work developing and iterating on theme features, to bring you a better end product over time. Note that it is not necessary to update to the latest theme version unless there is a new feature that you cannot go without. The update is unavailable for themes with code changes because the code introduced in the update could conflict with your third party code

Nice theme but… What to do with recommended products??? it’s mess. How I can make it related tags or vendors? And how to hide some products from search???Thank you in advance

Reply from Shopify Nov 17, 2022

Hi, you can use the Search & Discovery (https://bit.ly/3sImMjI) app to have more control over which recommended products are displayed. You might be able to hide specific products from search using Metafields, and if you'd like help setting that up Shopify Experts are available for hire

Hi there I would like to ask why my store can not show the discount price and the sale label ? I'm using the theme Dawn, and I have moved the product’s original price into Compare at price and Entered a lower value into Price.

Reply from Shopify Nov 17, 2022

Hello, make sure you are following the steps on this help document (http://bit.ly/3tyswNo) as well as ensuring that all variants have the same compare at pricing - otherwise it will not show any sale price. If it's still not functioning correctly, please contact our Support (https://bit.ly/2AWw5VA) so that we can look into this further for you!
