My campaign photos keep glitching onto other sites of the website, I don't get this?

predictive search function error. For example: My product is named "d-18", when searching, customers have to type the keyword "d-18" or "d 18" to display the product. If the customer types "d18" the product will not be displayed. My website has a lot of products that in the product name contain the character "-", so the Customize synonyms feature cannot be used.

Hi! In this case the search is looking for 'd18' exactly, and will return nothing if it doesn't exist. The search reads both 'd 18' and 'd-18' as 'd and 18', and will attempt to return any page that contains both 'd' AND '18' separately. Try adding 'd18' as a synonym in the Search and Discovery app (https://bit.ly/3sImMjI)

I'm not sure why they are allowed to be listing as an expert on behalf of Shopify. It has made me very reluctant to try any other companies on this platform. The errors and constant need for corrections was very frustrating. There was little to no proof reading nor corrections. Stay clear of this company.

Release notes

Version 9.0.0 - March 29, 2023

Dawn 9.0.0 introduces app blocks in header, video upload with auto-loop, "Click and hover" zoom, new desktop header menu style, a gift card recipient form, and some performance improvements on images.

Added

  • You can now incorporate eligible app blocks directly into your header section, to the left of your cart icon.
  • You can upload video files directly to Shopify and showcase them in the Video section. Additionally, you have the option to enable automatic video looping.
  • We introduced a new "Click and hover" zoom option on desktop for product page images to add a more subtle hover effect.
  • We've added a new style option to the desktop header menu, allowing you to collapse it into a hamburger icon with a popout drawer for a more compact and streamlined menu experience.
  • We added a language and currency switcher to the header section for shops selling in multiple currencies or languages.
  • The Slideshow, Image Banner, and Image with Text sections now have a subtle background animation option, which adds depth and dynamism to the overall design.
  • You can allow gift cards to be sent to a recipient with a new form on the gift card product page.

Changed

  • Important: The Richtext section heading type has been changed. This might result in your heading text being set back to the default value "Talk about your brand". This can happen when manually upgrading to this version.
  • We reordered the "Color scheme" setting to improve hierarchy in the header section.
  • The “Follow on Shop” option is enabled by default in the footer.
  • Section headings now provide more formatting options like bold, italic, and links.

Fixes and improvements

  • We improved the performance of the Multicolumn section by reducing the image sizes being loaded.
  • We fixed the blog post slides to show a preview of the subsequent slide.
  • We optimized the logo width to ensure the image looked crisp on all device sizes.

Version 8.0.1 - March 6, 2023

Dawn 8.0.1 introduces a bug fix for cart.

Fixes and improvements

  • We fixed a bug where the currency may not be applied correctly during checkout when using the cart drawer.

Version 8.0.0 - February 9, 2023

Dawn 8.0.0 provides more customizability options to the header & footer, add a new multi-row section for product images and text, and improve the display of product images and logos. The platform has also centralized the logo settings, improved search, added social media logos and language and currency picker by default, and fixed several bugs with product pages and customer orders.

Added

  • Important: Product images on the Product Page, Featured Product Section, and Quick Buy Modal will now be adjusted by default to fit within the screen's height. You can still turn this off if you’d like your images to be bigger.
  • We built a new mechanism to add sections & apps to your site's header & footer area directly from the online store editor.
  • We added a "Multi-row" section that lets you create a repeatable pattern of images and text. It also connects to metaobjects in the admin for a supercharged workflow.
  • We added a new setting that will constrain the height of product images on the Product Page and Featured Product Section. You'll now have the option to display product images in their original aspect ratio or crop them to fill the allotted space.
  • The product page now displays quantity rules tied to a product variant (minimum, maximum, increments) when they apply. The product page also indicates if a buyer already has quantity for an item in their cart.
  • We added an option for buyers to Follow your store on the Shop App.
  • We added a new block to display icons with text to the product information section.
  • We added an option to disable zoom on product images.
  • We added an Inventory and SKU block to the product information section
  • We added a new "Brand Information" block to the footer that allows you to share a small blurb about your brand and display social links.
  • We added a "Medium" height option to the Image with Text section.
  • We added more width options and resized the default width of the product image on the Featured Product section.
  • We added an option to automatically reduce the size of your Logo with a Sticky header when you scroll down the page.
  • We added a checkbox to show policy links on your site's footer.

Changed

  • Important: We changed the default height of the Image Banner from “Adapt to image size” to “medium” to better display larger images on screens. This will result in a slight visual change for themes who previously had this setting enabled. If you would like to revert the change, select “Adapt to first image” option in the “Banner height” setting.
  • We centralized the logo settings from the Header & Password sections to the Global Settings.
  • We changed the default height of the Slideshow Section to "Medium" instead of "Adapt to Image".
  • We improved the search by displaying more results.
  • We now enable language and currency picker by default in the footer so it will automatically display if your shop has multiple currencies and/or languages.
  • We show social media logos by default so they are automatically displayed if populated in your settings.

Fixes and improvements

  • We now show which variants are sold out or unavailable with better visual cues.
  • We improved the Complementary Product Cards on the Product page by making the cards more compact.
  • We streamlined the appearance of the Thumbnails product images by making them all the same size.
  • We made some improvements to Search: We added a clear button to the search input, we sync the search terms between the main search page and search bar in the header, and we automatically scroll to the top of the page when searching from mobile.
  • We fixed a bug where bullet points were not aligning properly in some sections.
  • We fixed a bug with how colour gradients were displayed in the Header section.
  • We fixed a bug on the customer pages, so that order totals now display refunds.

Removed

  • We removed the “Use Original Aspect Ratio” setting in the collage section.
