Updating Shopify themes has long been one of the most frustrating parts of running a Shopify store — and Out of the Sandbox took a giant step in making this easier with our free Shopify theme updater app. But guess what? We’ve taken this another step farther.
Out of the Sandbox’s popularShopify theme, Parallax, has now been upgraded to version 3.2.0! This latest release contains some key new features that make this dynamic theme even more flexible, and which will improve both the design and functionality of your Shopify store.
Although all of the previousShopify sections we’ve covered in this series have specific layouts, there are two section types that are much more wide ranging and flexible — the rich text and image section and the page section. Find out how to use these two section types in a variety of ways.
