HOW TO RESET YOUR SHOPIFY THEME?
Amending changes to your Shopify store might not always be the best idea. You might be under the impression that editing the theme to a better format is a good idea, only to realize that it was better in its original form.
In such cases, you can only regret and wish to have rolled back to the previous version of your theme. While there’s no reset button on the platform, Shopify makes it possible for users! How? Continue reading to know the steps:
STEP 1: SELECT THEMES
The first step requires you to log in to your Shopify store and move to the admin page. Once there, click on the ‘Online Store’ and visit your store’s ‘Themes’ section.
STEP 2: CLICK EDIT CODE
Once you’ve clicked on the themes section, the platform takes you to a list of themes that are present on the platform. From here, you can select any one of the themes by clicking on ‘Actions’, followed by ‘Edit’ code.
STEP 3: SELECT THE EDITED FILE
The third step requires you to select the edited file. In this step, you need to explore and click on the edited file to which you want to amend changes. Once you’ve accessed the directory, click the file.
STEP 4: PRESS ON OLDER VERSIONS
Once you’ve accessed the directory and selected the file, you’ll notice a number of older versions next to the file’s name on top. Select the older versions to access the previous versions of your theme.
STEP 5: CHOOSE THE OLDER VERSION YOU WANT
Once you’ve been able to have a clear view of the ‘Older versions of your theme, select any one of the themes that you want to restore. You can look at the timestamp and ensure the version you want to roll back to. Once done, click Save.
STEP 6: OPTIONAL: SELECT PREVIEW
The last step in the process is optional. Here, you can have a preview of the selected theme to ensure that it meets your requirements.
There are a couple of ways you can go around this. As @dmwwebartisan you can roll back your theme to take it back to where you were at certain dates before editing and changing it.
Or if it's a free Shopify developed theme you could download a fresh version from the theme store allowing you to start from scratch and not have to be get rid of what you have already in case there are parts you want to keep.
