Unfortunately, it's not possible to remove "/pages/" from the URL. The URL structures work the same way for all Shopify stores and cannot be edited. The only part of the URL that you can edit is the 'handle' which comes after the "/pages/".

 

Ex. yourstore.com/pages/handle-goes-here

 

You can remove the "image banner" via your theme editor. You may need to make a new page template first, if the banner shows on all pages.

To remove the page title, you just need to add some CSS coding. Something like this:

 

.page-title {display: none;}

 

However, I wouldn't recommend doing so, as it could hurt your SEO.

That's a very interesting setup that they have there. 

 

From what I can tell, the website itself is not a Shopify site. If you inspect the source code, there's no value for "Shopify.theme" or "Shopify.shop" which means they're not using a Shopify theme/website. Also, if you go to "/admin" -- it doesn't show a login screen (just a 404 error page). 

 

They are showing Shopify products & using Shopify's checkout though. If I had to guess, they're probably using the Shopify Buy Button functionality (https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/online-sales-channels/buy-button/create-buy-button) - or else a custom API integration - to be able to sell products via Shopify, on a third-party website. You can also see this just by the way the collection pages load. If you click into any of their collections, the site loads all around the content first, then loads the actual products last. If it was an actual Shopify site, the products would load with the page.

If you do a DNS lookup on kotn.com, it doesnt point to Shopify, however checkout.kotn.com does point to shopify. 

 

They are using shopify in a headless manner and they pointing people to the shopify based checkout to complete their order. Slick.

i could argue with you regarding URL editing, i checked some of shopify stores, some when navigating to ABOUT US, URL include ( /about ) and some ( /pages/our-story )

I've been on the Shopify platform for 16 years. Removing "/pages/" from the URL is not possible

You definitely can't edit the URL like that (ie. you can't make "/pages/about" become just "/about").

 

If you found a store that's doing so, they're probably not actually a Shopify store (but rather, using a different ecommerce platform). 

 

The closest you'll get to that is setting up URL redirects. 

 

https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/online-store/menus-and-links/url-redirect

 

You can make it so that when people go to "/about" then it automatically forwards them to "/pages/about" ... but the URL that shows at the top of the browser, when you're on the actual page, will still be "/pages/about".
