I have used the Narrative theme before. How do I find it again? If anyone has it, can you send it?

Hey, the Narrative theme is discontinued and no longer supported by Shopify, as is does not meet the new theme architecture called Online Store 2.0. It is now a "vintage theme".

Although, we found a narrative theme mod, use at your own risk and only if you know what you are doing. Note that it is VERY outdated and probably would not work correctly.

Hi, @alemburda!

 

As mentioned by, @StudioEnchant, the Narrative theme is one of our discontinued "Vintage" themes that is no longer supported in the Online Store 2.0 platform. In addition to their comments, I wanted to add that if you already have Narrative installed in a store, then we do still continue to offer support where we can.

 

There are some nuances with using a discontinued theme as there may be several implications with newer and advanced technology trying to run these outdated scripts. While it is not available to download from the Shopify Theme Store publicly, if you do come across a theme file that is useable support becomes even more limited if it was not downloaded directly from us. 

 

Our fellow user, @StudioEnchant, could not have put it any better so please do use discretion with this. 

 

With that being said, I assume there are some particular features you are looking for or a specific look that the Narrative theme offered that you'd like to replicate. Can you share some of that information with me? I'm sure I can help you find a new compatible replacement.

 

I look forward to your reply,

Hi, I would like to know how to implement a slideshow like in the Narrative theme. (Clicking a link changes the background image, and pulls a button into view, letting the user access the featured product page.) Below I've attached gifs of how it works.

Thanks for following up, @wenkked!

 

This is a built-in option in the Narrative theme and many other themes! Are you using a Shopify-developed theme from our Theme Store? If so, you can likely find these options under Theme Editor > Homepage > Slideshow section.

 

More often than not, you will see the area for the image upload, along with button link beneath it. If you're unable to find this on your end, share your specific theme with me and I will help look up the specific documentation to see if it is offered. 

 

Warm regards,

hey, is there an alternative theme similar to the narrative? I really liked the flow of this particular theme, product focus and video.

Hi Olivia, 

Also wondering if there's is a similar theme that offers a slideshow where there are text links at the bottom that navigate to the other slides. Or if there is any way to customize the slideshow to do that on the reformation theme. Currently, with the reformation theme, it only shows the "flickity-dots" at the bottom of the slideshow with no additional customization options.
