Excellent Shopify theme, full of features and customizations. Excellent customer support.

Powder Mix Direct Feb 5, 2024

We've been using the Expanse theme for several years now and are very happy with it. Customer support has been great as well.

I had a problem with my drop down menu not functioning, and Archtype was able to identify the issue (which was caused by another app), and give me some ideas about how to fix it. I ultimately deleted the associated app and the problem went away.

I've been using this theme for a few years now and I'm still very satisfied. It is also very important that the support desk does a good job. I can definitely recommend Expanse Theme!!!

Version 5.0.0 December 11, 2023

Expanse v5 comes with big performance wins, bug fixes, and a lot of other goodies under the hood! We’ve prioritized performance in this update and have made significant progress in reducing page load time. For instance, we’ve improved our Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) score by 1.63 seconds in the Expanse demo store.

Changed

  • Refactored code into Theme Components found inside the snippets folder
  • Refactored JS from single bundles like theme.js and vendor.js into individual ES Modules
  • Refactored to use Custom Elements better JS structure, section lifecycle handling, and JS event management
  • Refactored Quick Shop and Quick Add components for better loading and functionality

Removed

  • Global theme setting for animating page transitions have been removed
  • Lazyload images section setting removed from slideshow sections
  • Removed a combined 100 lines of repeated swatch logic from recommended products and hotspots sections

Fixes and other improvements

  • Various improvements made to improve page load time
  • Improved our LCP score by 1.63s
  • Image zoom works for right aligned product galleries
  • Escape key closes Search when Predictive search is disabled
  • Centered logo is correctly positioned on mobile header
