How to redirect where the "Continue Shopping" Button brings you, using the Debut Theme?

I'm trying to redirect where the "Continue Shopping" button brings the customer in my store. Currently it sends them to an all products page, which contains numerous items which are out of stock. Ideally I would like it to bring the customer back to the collection page they were previously on. Initially there was no "Continue Shopping" button available with the debut theme so I added a "Ajaxify-cart.liquid snippet to my code, here is what it entailed;

 

<script>
window.onload = function() {
/**

Shopify.AjaxifyCart = (function($) {

// Some configuration options.
// I have separated what you will never need to change from what
// you might change.

var _config = {

// What you might want to change
addToCartBtnLabel: 'Add to cart',
addedToCartBtnLabel: 'Thank you!',
addingToCartBtnLabel: 'Adding...',

// What you will never need to change
addToCartBtnSelector: '[type="submit"]',
addToCartFormSelector: 'form[action="/cart/add"]',
shopifyAjaxAddURL: '/cart/add.js',

I am wondering if anyone has any idea on what needs to be changed in order for the "Continue Shopping" button currently on my store to redirect the customer to the collection they were previously on.

 

Thanks

Hi, @conall_k1!

My name is Lilith, I'm on the Social Care team at Shopify.

There are a few ways you can approach this redirect. I would recommend using the developers guide here that walks through how to get that continue shopping button to go back to the last catalog the customer was on. More specifically on that page, there's a section on how to write up and place that snippet you're looking for.

Have you tried that guide in the past to achieve what you were looking for?

There are some alternatives like using Javascript or other methods. Some of those are mentioned in this Shopify Community Forum post. I would try them last as these can be a bit more involved.

Let me know how you do with the information above! I'm happy to answer any questions you think of as you work on your business.
