How to:

Always make a duplicate of your theme before adding any code. This will save you if anything goes wrong or if you decide not to use the added code in the future. We can not support or be responsible of any code changes that you make to your theme. For that reason, save yourself and make a duplicate first.

Next, open the Code Editor:

From your list of themes, find the Actions link for the theme you'd like to edit. Then select Edit code. Example draft theme:

        {% if option.values.size > 1 %}
          {% assign is_color = true %}
             More {{ option.name }}s
          {% endif %}
      {% endif %}
  {% endfor %}
{% endunless %}
