Hey Amina, 

If you know exactly which liquid file you deleted, It can be restored from a back-up. Alternatively, Redownload the theme, and use the liquid file you deleted from the new version.

The link below will give you the basic idea:

If you've bought that theme, you'll be able to add a new copy of it to your store at no cost.

A rough workflow:


  1. When installing do not add it as a published version. Make sure it's unpublished.
  2. Find the missing file in the NEW unpublished theme. 
  3. Copy the contents.
  4. Make a blank version of the file that's missing in your published theme
  5. Paste the contents into blank file in your published theme. 
  6. Save

Now you should be good to go.

Thanks for the steps but when I try to make a blank file of the liquid i deleted, it says it is invalid. 


I deleted the custom-content liquid and when i try make a blank one it says "new section incompatible with current schema value" or something.


can you please help?
