Hi, could you tell me how to edit the "powered by shopify"?

Reply from Shopify about 13 hours ago

Hi! We actually have a tutorial on how to do this, you can follow the instructions here (https://bit.ly/3JjgvmJ) to remove or change the Powered by Shopify wording in your footer.

Actually, I'm using the Dawn theme right now, but it's stuck at 60 pages per minute, and if I customize it, it can go down even further from 60 on mobile. Could you please tell me how to fix that? If my site doesn't draw in visitors, I can't hope to make many sales.

Reply from Shopify about 13 hours ago

Hello, it's definitely a high priority to ensure that your website is fast on all platforms and devices. Aspects such as apps, image size, videos and even fonts can affect store speed. There are things you cannot control as well, such as each customer's cache within their browser. You can learn more about how to improve your store speed here (https://bit.ly/433RZO6).

choose a corresponding one to match. You can also use the Custom Liquid block within the footer if you are familiar with coding, if not you can hire a developer to assist you with this.

Reply from Shopify about 13 hours ago

Hey there, using Custom Liquid blocks is a great way to implement features into your theme that don't come with it natively! You can learn more about Sections and Blocks here (https://bit.ly/3Dml1Mr). If you need a developer, you can also look into hiring one from the Partner Marketplace (https://bit.ly/3Idxo0a).

How do I add vector icons to the footer information like location pin point.... telephone number... email address... etc.?

Reply from Shopify Mar 15, 2024

Hi, you can add emojis and symbols next to menu items by editing the actual menu within your admin. Right click the text field and choose "Emojis and Symbols" (might different for different operating systems,) then choose a corresponding one to match. You can also use the Custom Liquid block within the footer if you are familiar with coding, if not you can hire a developer to assist you with this.

Release notes

Version 13.0.1 February 21, 2024

Dawn 13.0.1 introduces a few fixes.

Changed

  • The cart drawer header (Product, Total) is not sticky anymore when the content is scrollable

Fixes and improvements

  • Fix product rating alignment when the product doesn't have a media
  • Fix scroll issue on variant change
  • Limit width of country selector when the currency is the same for all the countries
  • Fix missing alt tags for the collection image on the collection page as well as for collection cards
  • Fix cart drawer's cart note to prevent overlapping of the text and caret icon
  • Fix cart drawer's header to prevent an overlap with the items in the cart

Version 13.0.0 January 31, 2024

Dawn 13.0.0 adds support for color swatches, improvements to the country selector, and tweaks and fixes to other sections. It also includes a breaking change to Color Schemes; see the Changed notes below for details.

Added

  • The Variant Picker now supports color swatches! This depends on the Product Taxonomy feature, which is rolling out gradually over the coming weeks.
  • We reworked the country selector, which now includes search, a new “popular countries” section, and a generally improved look and feel especially on smaller screens.

Changed

  • Important: If you use Color Schemes, they will reset to their default values due to an internal change to the feature.
  • If you are using the Search & Discovery app, you can now change how dynamic facet lists treat filters with no product matches.

Fixes and improvements

  • We added a default font for input fields, they now inherit the body font instead of falling back to a system default font.
  • We fixed an issue when adding cart notes that would prevent them from showing during checkout.
  • We fixed an accessibility bug where filter colors were displaying incorrectly in high contrast mode.
  • We updated the Multicolumn Section to provide a slider on tablet-sized screens, like it does on phone-sized screens.
  • We fixed a bug where the Localization Selector was slightly obscured when using Sticky Header and scrolling while the selector was open.
  • We fixed a bug that prevented the Product Grid Section from using the correct Image Shape in its Product Cards.
  • We subtly increased the font size for inline quantity errors on product pages to make them more readable.

Version 12.0.0 October 31, 2023

Dawn 12.0.0 introduces additional customization options by adding color scheme pickers to new areas, and new ways to visually display product filters. It also introduces some performance improvements related to image loading.

Added

  • Important: If you use a gradient as a main background, the look of your cart drawer and product modal (quick add) will be affected.
  • You can now select a color scheme for the Image with text section, Collection template (Product grid section), Product information section, Cart drawer, and Cart page.

Changed

  • If you are using the Search & Discovery app, you can now change the logical operator for facet filter values between OR and AND.
  • If you are using the Search & Discovery app, you can now choose to apply a swatch visual style for certain filter types (references to metaobjects).

Fixes and improvements

  • We fixed an issue with facet filters that affected currencies that use comma separators.
  • We fixed a formatting issue with metadata that is used for SEO purposes.
  • We fixed a visual bug that was affecting the collage section.
  • We fixed an issue with the “compare at” price to ensure more predictable behavior.
  • We’ve improved the experience of adding items to cart on slower connections.
  • We fixed a styling issue affecting collections in empty cart drawers.
  • We fixed an issue in the Slideshow section where the next slide flashes before coming into view.
  • We’ve improved various visual elements on the Quick order list including font consistency, alignment, and spacing.
  • We fixed an issue affecting Quick order list on iOS, removing the need to double tap the info icon to open it.

Removed

  • Removed image tag attribute that indicated which images to load first. We will now allow the platform to determine this, which will improve performance.
