Hello,

 

I'd like the descriptions I added to my collections to display on the catalog. The collection titles are visible but not the descriptions. Is there a way to enable this? I didn't see an option for this in the theme editor. Thank you in advance for your help.

This is an accepted solution.

Open up sections/featured-collection.liquid and add this code at line 27:

<div>{{ section.settings.collection.description }}</div>

 

The code should then look like this:

Note that this will make the collection description show up in any featured collection section.

To clarify, do you want to show the collections' descriptions on the page that lists all collections (/collections)?ksnip_20211121-090623.png

To show the description from the collection that I created.

I have this collection in my catalog but only the title shows, not the information.

 

i added text boxes but I cannot place them between the title and collection.
