How to design "About Me" page or other pages. Can I transfer a page from a theme?

I love Shopify, but forever I have been disappointed with their page creation options outside of templates compared to other hosts like Squarespace. I get that I can pay for a designer, but isn't the point of shopify to be able to do almost everything yourself? Anyway, I won't make this a rant.

 

Basically, I can purchase a theme, but it has 0 impact on new pages I want to create, like an About Me design or informational page. For anything custom, HTML editing skills are required. I want to see if anyone has suggestions on how to maybe transfer a theme page or how to do this myself with little HTML creating knowledge or hiring someone.

 

Wouldn't it be great if a custom About Me page template or standard template for added pages were included in a $180 theme... More of a suggestion to Shopify staff if anyone reads this. This is the only thing I found that Squarespace beats Shopify hands down without question.

 

How can I get more customization options for new pages than the current apps and options? It currently has the same page editing capabilities (maybe less) than Gmail when I don't hire a designer.

Hello Andy

Custom About Me templates can be easily created by yourselves if you have basic understanding of HTML and CSS.

As far as I know, it's not possible to transfer a page from a theme. But you can design an "about page" layout with a page builder app. I create my about us page with PageFly Page Builders. It's quite flexible with about 25 elements and can create any pages (homepage, product page, about me page...). Here is a few look inside. Hope it helps :D

I looked at reviews of PageFly and it is hard to gauge quality of this app as it appears that the app owners/fans are stuffing the reviews with multiple 5 star reviews. I say this since all reviews over the same time period award 5 stars and essentially say the same thing, i.e. that app/support is great but without going in to any great detail. Tellingly better insight appears to be given by the 1 or 2 star reviews. Interestingly Shopify does not have a way to flag any reviews as fake.
