Why do product descriptions change on all pages after editing one?

Why does the product description on one page change the product description on all other pages?

On a product page I add a "product description" function and change the text. But this text eventually changes the description in all other products. Can you please tell me how to fix this problem?

Hi, @Deniza. I'm happy to look into this with you! Are you adding any other product details to your product pages?


It sounds like you are writing your product description in the theme editor instead of the product detail page in your Shopify admin. When you make changes in your theme editor you are actually editing a template that is applied to multiple pages by default. For example, when you edit a product page in your theme editor, you are editing your Default product page template which is applied to all of your products, unless you manually change which template a product uses. We have more information about theme templates on this page if you'd like to learn more.


To add a product description for a product you'll want to do this by going to Products in your Shopify admin, selecting the product you'd like to edit, and entering the description into the Description text box like in the screenshot shown below. This will ensure each product has a unique description.




Please let me know if you have any questions! This guide on managing product details can help in the meantime as well.
