Empire Theme Tag filtering And Sort by editing.

Hello,

 

Hope all is well?

 

Got to say the my experience with shopify so far is very frustrating. Not very user friendly at all.

 

Even more frustrating when everyone just suggests you sign up for monthly subscription apps to eradicate the problems within the theme you've already purchased.

 

If these are known problems why just not sort the theme's issues, instead of making people pay for a theme that is riddled with hurdles.

 

The tag filter system only lets customers select one tag at a time, if a secondary tag is selected it removes the first tag. Making the filtering system non functioning. 

 

The 'Sort By' function won't let me change the default setting to Latest products first.

 

These are just a few of the minor huddles to begin with...

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Mark

Those are issues with the theme you chose, not fundamental shopify platform issues.

For third-party themes issues contact the theme developers directly.

If a theme is missing something you expected it's important to add that as needs list for evaluating themes in the future. 

And be sure to thoroughly review a themes documentation as some feature settings are not always obvious.

 

 

Up to three product.tags can be used on shopify's collection tag filtering you can test this by manually entering the url

/collection/tag1+tag2+tag3 

If a theme doesn't give a way to set a preferred sorting go to that collection and set the sort on the collection itself. https://community.shopify.com/c/shopify-design/how-to-sort-a-product-from-newest-to-oldest/td-p/4924...

No 1 theme or No 1 app meet EVERY businesses needs and they never will.

Apps fill in gaps and do it cheaply. Not all themes can be all things to all people.

A simple rule is if an apps price isn't valuable in generating revenue from some feature, your wasting time expecting that feature.

 

Some themes have specific behavior for a reason that appeal to the business needs of others.

It requires careful evaluation to identify your needs in advance.

Otherwise your in the progress of discovering what those needs are by trial and error and no theme can ever anticipate that.
