Duplicated template looks different from original

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

I need help.

 

I am trying to create an alternative product page template following the steps specified by the link below.

 

https://shopify.dev/tutorials/customize-theme-create-alternate-templates

 

In brief, I created a new template called “product.personalised.liquid” that links to the new section created called “product-personalised-template.liquid”. This new section was exact copy of “product-template.liquid” of the theme.

The problem is that the product that applies this new template look obviously different from that of using the original product template. As the new product template/section is exact copy of the original product template/section, I would expect they look the same when they are in use but it is not.

I am using the ICON theme.

Any help/advice would be helpful.

 

Thank you

keith

 

Is there something I have missed out?

Start over and do it slowly. Step by step.

Or you can hire us to fix it.

Hi, 

 

I have tried to redo it a few times. There are not many steps. I found that there is another person having the same issue, possibly more people meeting the same issue: https://community.shopify.com/c/Shopify-Design/Duplicating-product-template-liquid-does-not-work/m-p...

You can compare these two product pages:

Use the new product template: https://vartlashop.myshopify.com/products/fairy-bow-liberty-michelle-coral

Use the original product template: https://vartlashop.myshopify.com/products/copy-of-fairy-bow-liberty-michelle-coral

 

Thank you

@kcuk220 you have multiple product page templates

 

product (main template)

product.customizable (the one used for these) 

https://vartlashop.myshopify.com/products/copy-of-fairy-bow-liberty-michelle-coral

https://vartlashop.myshopify.com/products/copy-of-fairy-bow-liberty-michelle-coral?_pos=1&_sid=30c95...

When you login to Shopify and click on PRODUCTS on the top left.

Click on one of your products.

Then, on the right side of the product, it allows you to select WHICH template you want to use.

If you want your products to look the SAME, then select the SAME template for both products.

If you want one product to look slightly different than the original product, then you can select the PRODUCT CUSTOMIZABLE template.

I re-copied and pasted from the original product.liquid and product-template.liquid pages so if you select:

product or
product customizable 

under the PRODUCT page and select the dropdown to select either of these templates they will look exactly the same.

I think I see what is happening.

if you choose the main product template it looks one way

if you choose the product.customizable it should look like product template and not the new version.

@kcuk220 is this correct?

 

https://vartlashop.myshopify.com/products/copy-of-fairy-bow-liberty-michelle-coral-personalised-prod...

 

If so, you just need to select    product.customizable to any new products.

The cache within Shopify was messing with that NEW product so it was taking a long time to update the template once I changed it.

 

So.

product
product.customizable     

are exactly the same now - so you can edit the template  product.customizable   however you want without destroying the original template.

Take care

James
