Hello, 

I just launch my store last week and I wanted to use the blog feature but it is not working. Does anyone know why I'm seeing this error?

Liquid error: Error in tag 'section' - 'article-template' is not a valid section type

I followed all the blog steps and the post is live on my site but when I navigate to the url all I see is the error. 

url: https://dad-baby-socks.myshopify.com/blogs/news/how-this-dad-is-getting-ready-for-their-baby

If anyone knows how to fix this it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advanced!

Hey Osaretin,

This is Oswald, a Guru here at Shopify!

This error is due to the file article-template.liquid not found in your theme. Not sure if you have done any modifications to your theme files but it looks like it got deleted or there is a misspelling on the file name. 

I would like to take a closer look into this for you and place the original file back into your theme.  if could email me at support@shopify.com to the attention of Oswald from your email associated with your account that will be great! :)

If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to the Guru team. :)

Cheers!

Good afternoon - 

 

I'm having a similar issue. Can you send me over the template you sent to the other couple of gentlemen?

 

Thanks,

Warren

Check theme sections. Is there 'article-template' is exist or not. Sometime "theme watch" command does not track folder and section.

In that case exit "theme watch" and try again with some change. 

It's appended with me and i successfully solved by this way. 

Thanks.
