How to add HTML or a Page to your homepage

Pipeline has a feature where you can pull-in any Shopify Page that you've created into your homepage as a section. This can be handy if you have some HTML that needs to be added to the homepage or any custom content. 

How to:

1

Create a page in your Shopify Page editor

Your content will be created in the Shopify Page editor. If you're using HTML, you can switch to code view and paste the code there. If you're creating content, the Rich Text tools will help you add paragraphs and images.

In your Page Editor:

Start by creating a new page (or you can skip this step if you already have your page content created):

Give the page a title which can optionally be displayed on the homepage.

If you're adding HTML, use the code view icon in the toolbar to added your HTML code:

Once you click on code view, you'll notice the rest of the icons in the toolbar will disappear. This is a good way to know if you're in code view or rich text editor mode (be sure to never paste your HTML code in rich text editor mode - The HTML won't work). 

Summary: Be sure to be in code view/mode when adding HTML. The other icons will disappear. For non-HTML content, use the standard Rich Text editor mode/view. 

Save your page.

All versions - Tip when adding images in the Page editor

The image size Shopify defaults to is very small:

Once you choose your image, the default size is Large (480x480) which is very small:

If you need bigger images, change the value in the drop-down:

Try 1024x1024 or 2048x2048 for your image size.

(1) Change the size and then (2) use the Insert image button:

That will give you a much larger image to display if needed.
