Shopify layout options for Collection pages

The Klevu Shopify App now supports two different layout methods for your Collection pages:

Preserve Theme Layout on Collection Pages

The Use Klevu theme option will replace your collection.liquid template with some HTML and JavaScript, which is hosted by Klevu. When a customer lands on your Collection pages, Klevu will automatically inject the product listing and facets/filters for customers to fine-tune the search results. Some development work may be required to match these templates to the styling of your website.

Preserve Shopify theme instead uses your active Shopify theme to display the Collection pages to your customers. Klevu will power the ordering of any products your customers will see, but you will retain full control over the look, feel and functionality. We do this by directly manipulating the native Shopify “Manual sort order” for each of your Collections. Any third party extensions you are using on the Collection pages, such as facets or filters, will continue to work as they would normally.

Below is a brief summary of the benefits of using Preserve Shopify theme:
  • No development work required to match your theme.
  • Supports existing third party Apps on your Collection pages.
  • Works with any frontend including liquid, PWA and headless themes.
  • Retain any hard work you’ve put into your theme, including mobile optimisation.
  • Alleviate concerns you may have regarding SEO on a JavaScript-powered frontend.
