Filtering Collections using Tags

Last Updated: Aug 21, 2015 12:28PM EDT

Looking to access your theme's code or language options with Shopify's new theme editor layout?

In your Shopify admin click on Online store > Themes
Next to the theme that you want to edit click on the Menu button which is a small square with 3 blue dots
This will open a submenu of options which includes: Edit HTMl / CSS and Edit Language

The Testament Shopify theme has a unique filtering system which allows your customers to delve further into your product collections and find the relevant items.
Within this filtering system your customers can sort by a maximum of 3 different elements.

Many use these for Color, Size or price but all filters can be renamed by clicking on themes > customise theme > edit Language > English > Collections

The system relies on Product Tags and is a very simple setup to execute that wields powerful results for your shoppers
  1. Enter your product admin
  2. Create or modify an existing product
  3. You will see an option to add tags to the product ( these have no SEO use, don't get confused here )
  4. Add tags that you would like to use to identify your products in the filters, separated by commas Here are some examples:
    S, M, L, XL, Red, Blue, Black, White, Green, Silk, Cotton, Linen,
  5. When you have included your tags save the product and go to Themes > Customise Theme
  6. Click on Collection page and scroll to the bottom of this section.
  7. You will see some text boxes. In the color box add your color tags: 
    Red, Blue, Black, White, Green,
  8. In the Size box enter your size options:
    S, M, L, XL
  9. In the Last box you can choose a Title - for the demo lets call it: Material and add some material tags
    Silk, Cotton, Linen,
  10. Make sure that spelling and upper / lowercase is identical to how you entered the tags on your products! If these do not match identically to the tags on your products it will not work.
  11. Apply the settings - you are all done!
