Customizing Theme Overview (Elevate)

Elevate supports multiple methodes of customization and supports the recently released Page Builder.

Starting with the easiest methods: No coding experience required:

1) BigCommerce Theme Customizer (Click here for guide)

2) Add widgets and further customizations with the BigCommerce Page Builder (Click here for guide)

 

Advanced:

The method below should only be used if you are comfortable editing HTML, SCSS and understand the BigCommerce Stencil theme architecture. 

IMPORTANT note on editing theme files (this only applies if editing files using Stencil theme editor):

If you wish to modify the theme by changing the core files, then you'll need to create a copy of the theme first.

Making a copy effectively 'disconnects' it from the update feature. The original theme will still receive updates, but you will need to manually maintain a customized theme.
