Editing the theme files
Split has a lot of built-in settings in the Theme editor. However, there are times when these settings simply aren't enough. Then, if you know your way around HTML/CSS/Liquid, you can modify the theme on yourself, by editing your theme code to make changes.
Viewing the Edit HTML/CSS page
The Edit HTML/CSS page lets you edit the code files that make up your theme.
- From your Shopify admin, click Online Store, and then click Themes.
- In the left sidebar, click the drop-down menu, then click Edit code:
- On the Edit code page, you can edit the existing files, and add new ones. The page shows a directory of theme files and an online code editor:
- When you click a file in the list, it opens in the code editor. You can open and edit multiple files at once.
