Custom section groups not showing on editor after last shopify last UI change

3 0 0

After the last UI update on the Shopify editor, custom section group (ex.  "type": "") doesn’t show on the editor anymore. I worked well couple weeks ago with old UX.  is there something I need to update to work with the new UI (displayed as {% sections 'men-group' %}) or is a fix shopify needs to do?

Hi Ocoronel,


The new admin UI update shouldn't affect how section groups are rendered - did you make any other changes on your side? Is the group showing on the actual store even though it doesn't appear on the editor?

Hi Liam


Thanks for replying.


Yes, it works as usual on the store and editor preview, it just doesn’t up on the editor left sidebar tree view. But I found that If I copy that section closer to the header section group it does shows up on the sidebar (two times). So as a workaround I did this.


        {% sections 'header-group' %}

        {% if request.design_mode %}

          {% sections 'men-group' %}

          {% sections 'women-group' %}

        {% endif %}


Now it appears two times on the sidebar, editor preview is broken, but it is the only way I found to edit/add sections for the men-group and women-group.

I same a similar issue. The blue loading bar is stuck and nothing is loading in the Sections sidebar.

It has worked perfectly for years without any theme updates. Now it is not working anymore. Does anyone have a solution for this? I'm pretty stuck now...
