debut theme adding lists or sub collections to debut theme??

5 0 1


How can I modify or customize my debut theme to create some sort of subcollection? Would I need to modify my html code? Or are there any apps I can download to accomplish this?

I am trying to create a hierarchy of collections (Which could be shown on the home page of my debut theme)

Someone competent enough to help me with this?!! That would be great!

Hi, Matthew!


Sunny here from the Shopify Guru team and I'd be happy to assist. 


Creating a subset of collections is a really great way to organize a shop to make for an easy shopping experience. As an example, you can have a collection called "Living Room", and within that collection you have sub-collections such as, Furniture, Accessories, Lighting etc. Does this sound similar to what you're looking to achieve?  


If so, we have this helpful guide that teaches you how to create a subset of collections on a custom page by editing your theme code. The guide will walk you through the step-by-step instructions to set that up within your shop. However, the guide itself is fairly advanced and is not supported by Shopify. Although I don't have much experience with coding, I've successfully set up sub-collections on my own shop and would be happy to lend a hand if you need!


As a side note if you haven't already, I would recommend creating a multi-level dropdown menu that displays your subset collections in menu format that would look something like this:


Various themes on our theme store include the multi-level menu feature, including Debut, but if you're using an older version of the theme, you'll either need to update to a newer version or use an app. Below are two of our most popular menu apps from the App Store:


Let me know if you have any specific questions about the guide I shared or if you get stuck along the way. I'd be happy to help.
