Pages all linking to the same place

Hi All,

 

When I add pages and change the navigation by linking it to the proper page, each page links to the same content as the sustainability page. Is there any way to fix this?  I have reviewed this excessively and it seems that I am doing it correctly... Has this happened to anyone else?

  1. In your admin, visit Online Store > Click Customize beside Dawn.
  2. At the top of the Theme Editor, click the dropdown menu (when you load the Theme Editor it should say Home page) and select Pages > Create Template > name it "Terms of Service"> select Create Template.
  3. Next, leave the Theme Editor and go back to your admin and click Online Store > Pages > Terms of Service.
  4. In the "Online Store" section of this page (on the right side), you will see a dropdown menu under 'Theme Template" > click it and select "Terms of Service" > click Save (this is linking the template you created in the Theme Editor to this specific page).
  5. Now if you visit the Terms of Service link in your footer, it should load the Terms of Service page that you've just associated with that new template you created in the Theme Editor 🙂

This is the response I got from Shopify and it helped me a ton.

Unfortunately this didn't solve the problem for me. I think this must be an issue with Dawn 😞 

 

Has anyone figured out another solve?

Same issue but found a solution.  I'm not an expert but the "default page" is one page.  Essentially, you need to create a duplicate default page.  Go to online store and on the left of the customize button, there's a dropdown menu.  Click that and select edit code.  You want to create a new template so click "add new template."  The template you want to create is a page.  Select that from the drop down menu.  Now add a new name for the page template.  I went with page.ourstory because I was creating an Our Story page.  Keep the JSON.  Hit done.  Now you need to assign a page to the template you just created.  Boom, you should be all set  Good Luck!

I am having the same issue with two different themes for my clients. Is there any new information on this? 

When I create a new page it links to a different one even if it says it's linked to the correct page. 
Very frustrating!

For me, "About Us" is the link that opens no matter which link I try to open. I tried creating new template as you suggested above, but even in new template (page), text that automatically appears is of "About Us" page. Can you please suggest why is it so? And how it can be resolved?

I struggled with this problem but i eventually figured it out. This is how to solve it.....

Under the Admin section, when you click on "Pages" to create a new page for your site, the dawn theme bases the page you are about to create on a previously created page (usually the "default" page). so essentially a COPY of your default page is created. Now you are allowed to name the new page, add text and photos etc... and then you click save after youre done creating the page. 

Your new page (and all the other pages you've created) are now listed.
Now you need to link the page to your navigation.

Go to Navigation

Choose the menu you want to add your created page to

Click "edit" on the menu item that you want your new page to link to (for example, "About Us" or "New Products"

Now click where it says "link", then select "pages" and choose the page you created

Click "Apply Changes", then click "Save".

Now its time to make your new page ACTUALLY SHOW on your website (its hidden right now but its there!!)

Click "Online Store" on your Admin page, then click Customize to enter your site.
once it loads up scroll (if necessary) to your menu and click on the menu item you just connected your created page to, the page will then load
on the left of your screen, you will see all the options you usually see that help you customize your site. But if you notice, there is a section named "TEMPLATE" and just under it there is an option that says "Page" but its GREYED OUT. Hover over that option and an icon in the shape of an eye will pop up, CLICK IT AND IT WILL MAKE THE CONTENT OF THE NEW PAGE YOU CREATED VISIBLE.

you should see your created page now. if you see anything from the default page that you dont want, just delete it. Dont forget to click Save to keep your new page final.
