How to Clone a Shopify Homepage for Customized Landing Pages

How can I clone my home page?

The reason I ask is I want to create 2 or 3 separate landing pages targeted at different audiences. I want them to be largely the same but with some minor differences.

Anyone know how I can do this?

Hi, @houssamalissa

This is Luna, from Shopify. What a great question! You can most definitely duplicate the work you have already done on your home page. Let me share the steps with you to do so. 

In order to duplicate your theme, you can follow these steps here: 

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes.
  2. For the theme that you want to duplicate, click Actions > Duplicate.

The duplicate theme appears on the Themes page. It is named Copy Of + the name of the theme that you duplicated. Feel free to edit that as you wish. Once you are ready, you can start to make the small home page changes to your copied theme without altering the live theme. Please note that if you already have 20 themes added to your Shopify admin, then you'll need to delete one before you can duplicate another. You can learn more about this here: Duplicating themes

I’d love to hear more about your business plans! Are you going to open multiple websites for each target audience? 

Looking forward to hearing from you,

 Hi Luna,

Thanks for getting back to me!

So actually no, I'm just going to have one website - however I am going to create multiple different product landing pages for my three main demographics of customer. Each one will pitch the product according to their particular interests / use-cases.

So in terms of duplicating - what would actually be important is being able to duplicate individual pages within the same website rather than creating separate websites. Does that make sense? And would the method you've outlined achieve that?

Thanks 🙂

Hey, @houssamalissa

That's a great question! Thank you for clarifying that. If you are hoping to duplicate your home page multiple times within the same theme, the strategy I suggested won't be ideal. This would require you to copy and multiply pieces of code from your theme that have already been written. 

Your homepage template is the index.liquid file for most themes. That being said, you would need to then edit it to make the necessary adjustments. You could create a new page template with the formatting of the index.liquid page. However, this is not going to be a straightforward process if you are unfamiliar with coding. I suggest considering hiring a Shopify Expert to help you with this. 

If you're going to edit the code of your theme, I highly recommend duplicating your theme first. It's also important to know how to roll back to an older version of your themethat way if something goes wrong, you are covered. 

Or, you could consider a third-party app such as PageFly Landing Page Builder. Before downloading an app, I suggest reaching out to their support team to clarify if the app will suit your needs. You can find their contact information on the app page. For example: hereTo browse other options, check our Shopify app store here.

In the meantime, how has everything been going with your business? If you have any questions, please let me know!

Please make this easier, and also a way to save sections and paste them on to other pages, this is way to complicated.

Thank you so much, @Luna for mentioning PageFly. 

With PageFly, Free Landing page builder app, you can create a home page for free and then using Import/ Export function to import that home page from a store for another store (Which also installs PageFly). This process will take less than 3 minutes!

Let's give it a try, we also provide 24/7 support live chat when you need helps.

PageFly with love ❤️

Hmm, seems like the answer is no then. That's pretty lame from Shopify isn't it.

I make playing cards. Maybe you'd like to buy them?

Yes. This is a basic functionality to allow flexibility.

Yeah You would 100% think shopify has this, Or at least to have me save my sections and just copy and paste it to other pages... This seems so complicated.
