How to create an Article Page with EcomSolid

This article will guide you through the steps to create and customize an article page with EcomSolid.

What is an Article Page?

A blog post/article is a standalone publication or journal for an online store that includes short posts or articles about the store’s products, services, or any related subjects. They are organized by their publish date, and you’ll often find them having a separate comment section for reader-author interactions.


By using EcomSolid, you can create an article page template to display the blog post created from your Shopify Admin in minutes. 


 

 

If you would like to create a page to showcase a list of blog posts/ articles, follow the instructions here.

If you don’t have one, please go to the Library > Sections > Article and insert your preferred Article section to your page.


 


Click on the section to start configuring the settings. 


Step 3: Scroll down to the Blog Post Content section and hit “Pick an article.” The article picker window will appear for you to choose one from the list to see how it will be displayed within the template.
