Every theme is structured differently which is why some tutorials will work on some themes but not others as it really falls down to how it was coded. While I can fully appreciate the need for getting this added, and why it is important, this is something that would fall outside the scope of our support. It will require reaching out to a developer or creating a new post within the "Shopify Design" thread to gain assistance with getting this feature added to your theme. There are also a number of shipping calculator apps that you can use from the app store to get this added if you're having trouble getting the tutorial to work with the theme you're using.
@Peter the "shipping calculator" IS in the shopify design section. that's where the tutorial is from. Everyone that's using simple theme has posted how it doesn't work and that we would all like it to work but it seems those pleas are not being noticed. That's why I asked you if you can just get the simple theme team involved. Unfortunately on most tutorials people report that simple theme doesn't work.
If you can give me more direction to how to get this in the works, I'd appreciate it. And I'm sure others would too.
To provide some context, the Shopify Design thread is a public thread for all design-related questions that our Community members have. However; while there are tutorials provided in the Design thread, we can not guarantee that the tutorials will work with a specific theme, nor provide support on making the changes if it is an advanced tutorial. In addition to this, our frontline support members are not trained in HTML/CSS so I'm afraid I would be unable to provide guidance on how to implement and/or fix the issue at hand.
@Peter Thank you!! That's the most that has been done to resolve this (since as far back as 2018 from what I can see)! There's so many cool things that don't work with Simple theme unfortunately. Even their own related products results are unrelated and with no logic. But again, it seems to be the only theme that has a left menu bar. Don't get me wrong, there's some other nice features in Simple as well. Too bad users couldn't test / critique themes or give suggestions. Although I realize that might open a pandora's box too.... lol Most users certainly don't understand development logic, but a lot of developers don't understand actual use.
But, I've been on that soap box forever, so I will step down now lol
Again, thank you so much for your efforts. Hopefully, it might actually make it happen!
