To learn more about how Shopify blogs work, check out their Writing blog posts article.
We want to make a couple of recommendations, so you can get the most out of the blog posts section.
Add featured images to all of your blog posts.
You can do this when adding or editing the blog post. See Shopify’s Add an image to a blog post documentation for instructions.
Add excerpts for all of your blog posts.
You can add excerpts when you add or edit the blog post. See Shopify’s Display an excerpt from a blog post documentation for instructions.
If you don’t do this, Lorenza automatically adds a preview of the first few sentences and then trails off with a …
From your theme’s “Customize” screen, choose Home page from the pages drop-down menu at the top of the screen.
Scroll down the list of home page settings until you see the Add section button.
Choose Blog posts from the list of sections, and press the Add button.
This opens the blog posts section settings.
Use the Add article button to add articles to the current section.
Choose the Style for the section, either Default or Contrast.
If you select Contrast, this section uses Lorenza’s contrast colors.
Choose how many Columns of blog posts should be shown at one time.
Choose between 1 and 3 columns.
Choose the Image aspect ratio to use for all the blog posts’s featured images.
Using this setting, you can ensure all of your images appear the same size. Choose Square (1:1), Landscape (3:2), or Portrait (2:3) to smart-crop any outlier images.
Use the Natural option to avoid cropping any of your featured images.
Add Heading text.
This text is displayed as a small heading above the title of your blog posts.
Add Link text.
Each blog post includes a “Read more” link that links to the full article. You can customize this link text here.
Choose a Max width of text, between 16 and 50.
The text max width lets you control the shape of the text, and make it look good no matter how long your text is.
Use the Back to settings (<) button to go back to all of the home page settings again. Use the drag handles to rearrange the order of your home page sections:
Use the Save button in the top-right corner when you are finished editing.
The following settings are available for the blog posts section:
Use Square (1:1), Landscape (3:2), or Portrait (2:3) to have the images cropped to match one another
Use Natural if you do not want your images cropped at all.
We recommend keeping this to a just a few words long.
