Hi

 

I have been in contact with the author of the theme, Add to cart buttons cannot be added to the home page/front page of the shop. This is hard for me to believe. 

 

I was able to post a string of code to give me a add to cart button, but this also gave the collections pages add to cart button. Collections pages then had 2 add to cart buttons.

 

I hope someone can help me to add to cart button only to the front page / home page.

Thanks

Hi @maxlime

 More likely they mean they cannot customize the theme for you, or that the theme does not have a section exclusively for an add to cart button or that fits the use case.

 

If the theme has a custom-html section either just try adding a buy button.

Or all an add-to-cart(ATC) button is really is a url query to the /cart endpoint.

So if not using locales simply make a link setup to add a product using the info in the ajax api docs.

If the theme is OS2.0 compatable see if it has a custom-liquid section, or  if so check resources like the parters code examples for snippets that may guide you to a customization.

Beyond that, that theme is not available in the shopify theme store so expect limited support or contributions.

If such a theme has it's own forums it can be best to pursue answers there.

Hi @maxlime 

 

We can add the add to cart button on the home page by customizing the featured product liquid file.
