Why doesn't my theme look like the demo?

All Shopify themes can only include a single layout of empty placeholder sections. Themes cannot include content, images, or specific pages from the demos. You can change the theme style to match the colors and fonts of one of the demos, but this will not change the sections or layout of your theme.

The demos provide just a few examples of how to use the theme. When you download Cornerstone, you have access to all the same sections found in every demo. You can recreate any feature or page found in the demos. Or you can combine features and customize your store to have a substantially different layout and style, for any industry.

Why aren't changes in the editor showing on my site?

You may need to assign the template you are editing to your pages in the Shopify admin. See our guide for creating and assigning templates. If your theme isn't published yet, learn how to assign templates from unpublished themes.

It's also possible you have edited a 'Context' for a specific market, so the changes will only appear when visiting your site from certain countries. See our guide for Editing contexts for markets.

Does Cornerstone support multiple languages?

Yes. Cornerstone includes a language selector in the Announcement bar and Footer. You will need to use an app (./like Shopify’s Translate & Adapt) to translate your store content, and you may need to take some extra steps when setting up theme features. Learn more in our guide for selling in multiple languages.

Will you help customize my store?

While our Support cannot offer code customizations, we can point you to a service that does. Just let us know what you're looking for — we might even have a solution for you with our available theme features.

Can I get a refund?

All theme sales are final and we are unable to provide refunds. As theme developers, we are not involved in billing or transactions through the Shopify theme store. Refund request need to be addressed to Shopify’s billing team.


Why are my swatches blank?

If your swatches appear blank, make sure that you are using an existing default color or that your image files and custom color names much your variant names. You may also need to add custom swatches for multiple languages.
