How can I select specific collections instead of default collection when I'm customizing my site? I have a rich text box on each of my drop down menu items under Artwork, but when I change the text it changes on all the pages. I have tried many different things but nothing is working. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi there, @awirtz. Thanks for taking the time to reach out to the Shopify Community Forums with your question around editing these pages. My name is Imogen. It's good to meet you!

 

The reason why you're noticing this edit being presented across all of your collection pages is because you currently have all of your collection pages assigned to the same template. If you're wanting to have this text only be present for a specific collection page, then you will want to create a new collection page template, add that rich text to that template, and then do that same process for any additional collections you wish to make this edit for. 

Making new templates is very straightforward, and they will use your 'default template' as a basis for their creation. If you're in the theme editor, and navigation to a collection page, you should see 'default collection' visible across the top of the page as part of a dropdown menu. If you hover over this option, you can click an option to build a new template. This will allow you to build that new template using the previous 'default' as a starting point. Then, when you've made the desired edits, you can assign the new template to a specific collection by going to 'Products > Collections', clicking on the desired collection, and then changing the assigned template using the 'theme template setting' on the right side of the screen.
