Collection list

Theme section

Theme retirement Ira is no longer available on the Shopify theme store. Theme support and updates for current users will end after May 18, 2024. Learn more here.

The Collection list section displays a grid of selected collections with featured images.

Set up section

Add this section to your template and use the drag-and-drop handles to re-order its position. You can add this section multiple times with different content and settings.

Editing a template changes all pages that use that template. To edit specific pages, you can create new templates or insert dynamic content with metafields.


In your theme editor (Customize):

  1. Select a Template to edit from the dropdown menu in the top bar.

    Learn how to use templates in our Templates guide.

  2. Under Template, click (+) Add section and select Collection list.

  3. Click and hold the drag-and-drop handles ⋮⋮ to re-order your sections.

Select feature collections

Select multiple Collections to display in a grid with featured collection images that link to those collections. We recommend adding a Collection image in your Shopify Admin. If no image is set, Ira will use a product image from that collection by default.
