The only thing good about this theme is the design. But links won't work every time you move to a new page. You have to reload the page to get ANY link to work. Talk about a poor user experience. And as others have said numerous times: updating the theme removes any code update you make. Shopify give some excuse about I don't know what (basically it's not their fault).

Hi, links should not require a page refresh, this behaviour may be due to a code change or an app script. Please open a ticket with support so that we can take another look. Note that if your theme code is modified, the option to update will not appear. When you update a theme, it installs a second copy of the theme with the updates without affecting the original theme.

Hello, thanks for trying out Dawn. You may not have customer account activated within your Admin, please see the instructions on this page (http://bit.ly/3kJQYu3) that shows you the different settings for customer accounts. If you have them activated and they still aren't showing, please contact our Support (https://bit.ly/2AWw5VA) so that we can take a closer look!

Great for starting off, but missing a discord link icon and that is really frustrating :(

Hey there, glad you are liking the theme! Every account gets 60 minutes of Design Time from our Themes Team for customizations (see https://bit.ly/3lWRByu for more information,) this would be something that we could look into adding for you. Please contact our Support (https://bit.ly/2AWw5VA) so that we can take a peek.

Terrible! I am stuck on Dawn 5.0.0 because my home page, product pages, settings, etc. won't carry over.... I am so disappointed in how poor Shopify theme updates are. It should be like an iPhone where all settings carry over regardless of "code".... everything is code shopify! Please get on board with advanced technology. Bummer

Reply from Shopify Jan 12, 2023

Hello! If you do not see the option to update your theme, this indicates that your theme code has been modified (possibly by an app if you haven't done so yourself). Comparing Shopify themes to iPhones isn't viable, as iPhones do not allow you to change their base code. See https://bit.ly/3GYMc4w for more information on theme updates.
