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.

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 9 days ago

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 9 days ago

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!

Release notes

Version 7.0.1 - September 29, 2022

Dawn 7.0.1 introduces several bug fixes.

Fixes and improvements

  • We fixed an issue causing mobile slider controls to display unnecessarily under some conditions.
  • We fixed an issue where hidden variant media were visible in product media modals.
  • We fixed a spacing issue with the “Middle center” desktop logo position setting.
  • We fixed an issue that could prevent the complementary products block from displaying product images.
  • We updated Shopify Help Center links for complementary products.

Version 7.0.0 - September 15, 2022

Dawn 7.0.0 introduces several fixes and enhancements to make the themes even more flexible and easy to use. We now offer additional customization options in the header to change the position of your logo, new ways of displaying your product page and featured product images, and a new complementary product block to help boost sales.

Added

  • The announcement bar section has a new setting that lets you set the text alignment.
  • The header is now more flexible. We added a new logo position option called “Middle center” to feature your logo in the center and your navigation menu on the left, on larger screens.
  • The product information section has a new layout option that allows you to split your product images into a two-column grid.
  • The product information section has a new block that allows you to display complementary products.
  • The product information and featured product sections now allow desktop media to be displayed on the left or on the right on larger screens.
  • We added pagination to the main collection list.
  • We introduced the ability to add and reorder sections, including app sections, to the customer account pages.

Changed

  • Important: We introduced new theme settings to style “product cards”, “blog cards” and “collection cards” separately. Prior to this update, all these components were styled with the cards’ theme settings. If you have previously updated the style of your cards, this update may cause visual changes to your product cards, blog cards, or collection cards. This can be modified by adjusting their styling in theme settings.
  • We introduced a new setting on the collage section to let you apply product card styling to all card types featured in the section.

Fixes and improvements

  • We fixed the setting that displays the product’s vendor name on the cart pop up notification.
  • We fixed an issue where the search dropdown window wasn’t matching the width of the search input field on smaller screens.
  • We fixed an issue where the quick add buttons would still display when JavaScript was disabled.
  • We fixed an issue where the login link wouldn’t display properly in the menu drawer on Android.
  • We fixed video controls not being clickable on the featured product section.
  • We fixed an issue with the cart notification overlapping the rest of the content on Safari v15.6.
  • We added max width to iFrames placed in the product description so the content doesn’t overflow.
  • We fixed the slider padding being different on Safari from the rest of the browsers.
  • We fixed an issue where manually inputting a quantity in the cart drawer could remove the item in question.
  • We fixed a bug to allow the removal of filters.
  • We fixed focus rings for Windows High Contrast mode.

Version 6.0.2 - June 23, 2022

Dawn 6.0.2 introduces a new cart drawer feature, additional customization options on the rich text section, and various fixes and enhancements.

Added

  • Important: We introduced new settings to the header section to control top and bottom section padding. This update may cause a visual change to your header. This can be modified by adjusting the bottom padding value.
  • We introduced a new theme setting that allows you to control what happens when an item is added to cart. Choose between a cart drawer, a pop-up notification, or linking directly to the cart page.
  • The rich text section is now more flexible. You can now customize the desktop content position, the content alignment, the size and formatting of headings, and the number of blocks added to the section.

Changed

  • Important: We moved “Show vendor” and “Enable cart note” checkboxes from the cart template to the theme settings under the heading “Cart”. This update may cause a visual change to your cart. This can be modified by adjusting the checkboxes in the theme settings.

Fixes and improvements

  • On larger screen sizes, the quick add modal included unnecessary empty space. This is now fixed.
  • We fixed an issue where the product media gallery sometimes hid the subsequent media when larger values of horizontal grid space were used.
  • The product media gallery included unnecessary empty space between the product media and the gallery controls. This is now fixed.
  • We fixed an issue where the collapsible row blocks in the collapsible content section were missing padding.
  • We fixed an issue where hiding the background of the content container on the slideshow section would not work if a gradient was set as the background color.
  • The recaptcha badge was not visible on the contact form. This is now fixed.
  • We fixed an issue where adding a menu block to the footer required a heading to display.
  • The experience of navigating paginated pages when using a screen reader or keyboard is improved.
  • We added a warning to the password footer link opening in a new tab, improving its accessibility.
