Hello @Ash271,  You have to just customize newly pubslished theme. It will not affect on  other part of shopify like apps, shopify.

@Ash271  apps tends to include snippets and snippet inclusions in theme files upon installation, hence if new theme was added after app install it might not contain snippets from apps.

Before going live, make sure all used app snippets and snippet inclusions are included in new theme.

Best of luck!

Thank you for your reply. Since changing over themes Ive received a message from google saying 'Indexed, though blocked by robots.txt'. This is on my checkout page, cart page, shipping, privacy policy, terms of service, refund and search query page. Do you know how I fix this please?

Thank You
