Create a short extract or summary of your blog article by clicking on the Add Excerpt link below your blog article content. The theme includes a choice of list or grid layout for posts on your blog page.
Our images will always scale horizontally to fill the width of your site, but you can alter the amount of screen your slideshow occupies by adjusting the relative height of your images.
You can also choose separate slideshow images for mobile devices.
Don't forget to make your image sizes consistent across all the slides!
A columned, full-width menu is included in the theme for desktop. Firstly, you need to add 3-tier menus in your navigation. Then head over to your Theme Editor and choose a column layout for your nested navigation in the Header theme settings.
Yes, but you will need to hire a developer to add other typefaces to your store.

Decide whether to show a full-width layout on the home page product and collection rows, header, footer, and collection pages. All our theme demo styles except Chantilly use the full-width layout.
Product options can be shown as boxes or dropdowns.
Speed up purchases by enabling quick-buy so shoppers can add items to the cart directly from a collection page or the homepage. The dynamic checkout button allows customers to go direct to the checkout with that item bypassing the cart page entirely.
For full-width sites, the number of product images shown per row will change dependent upon the browser width and your choice of image height setting. For product images of varying shapes, you may wish to use variable-width product thumbnails.
Use the title and price position setting to choose whether to show product thumbnail title and price on hover or under the image. On smaller screens the title and price will always be shown under the image.
The Symmetry theme supports product icons or labels on the home and collection pages for on sale items, sold out items, items with low stock and the option to show a custom text.
Each icon/label (except the custom one - which is controlled using product tags) also includes a setting to allow you to switch it on or off.
Use the setting show second image on hover to show two product images on your collection and home pages.
Choose whether to search only products or also include page content and blog articles.
Decide what happens after your customers add a product to your cart. To remain on the current page, choose the drawer option.
Allow customers to choose another currency to view prices in your stores. Note, customers will always have to checkout in your store's base currency unless you are on the Shopify Plus plan.
The Symmetry theme is available in 4 styles - Chantilly, Salt Yard, Beatnik and Duke. These demo stores aim to illustrate the variety of looks possible with the theme. Choose your theme style in the Theme Settings tab. The style settings will affect cross store elements such as your fonts, cart behaviour and social media icons.
The theme navigation has a horizontal bar design on desktop. It supports three menu tiers set up in the usual Shopify way. Choose from 3 nested navigation layouts, rows - on click, columns - on click and columns - on hover.
To help customers navigate around your collections quickly, the theme includes the option to automatically expand the navigation to the current page. This will leave the active menu tiers open and visible.
Add an announcement bar at the top of your Symmetry Shopify theme site, to promote your latest offers - add a link to a specific product or offer page, and choose a colour for the bar.
Choose to show up to 4 "cross page promotions" to highlight your services and help customers to navigate your store. The theme includes a built in list of icons, or you can add in your own image or icon instead! To show only 3 promotions or to change to your own icons, just delete one of the four and then add in your new icon, text and link. These will show in the promotional bar above the footer.
Payment icons are pulled directly from Shopify based on your payment settings.
Footer text such as "Powered by Shopify" and "Theme by Clean Canvas" can be edited in the Language Editor.

Add a slideshow image for desktop and (if you wish) another of a different shape for mobile devices. On desktop, we'd recommend choosing an image that is at least 1200px wide, for a restricted width homepage, or, at least 1600px wide for full-width sites.
It's advisable to choose images that are all the same height for all the slides. This blog article explains more about image sizing.

The Symmetry theme offers you the flexibility to choose how to organize your products on the collection page. Select a grid or a list layout. You can even leave the decision open to your customers by selecting show toggle for grid and list views.
