Getting Started

This Tutorial will show you how to output information about a Product on its automatically-generated Detail Page.

It will cover how to:

  • Find where Product layouts are stored on Code Editor
  • Develop a wrapper.liquid file
  • Include an item.liquid file
  • Add functionality for a User to add the Product to Cart

File Structure

In SITE MANAGER/Code Editor, the folder structure for eCommerce layouts is as below:

  • layouts
    • modules
      • module_14
        • product
          • name_of_my_layout
            • list
              • wrapper.liquid
              • item.liquid
            • detail
              • wrapper.liquid
              • item.liquid
        • product_attributes
          • my_attribute_layout.liquid

Creating a new set of Product Layouts

To create a new set of Product layouts- create your folder at the level of "name_of_my_layout". Inside that, the folders and files should be created as shown above.

Detail Layout Development

As with list views, the detail folder inside your new layout folder should contain a wrapper.liquid and an item.liquid file. Refer to the folder structure at top of the document for reference. You also have the option of creating an attribute layout which can be included inside your item.liquid file to show Product Variations.


wrapper.liquid -- detail view example


This is the file for the main section code e.g. a section title or padding. You will need to use the following liquid to include your item.liquid file inside the wrapper and give it access to information about the Product:



item.liquid -- detail view example


Unlike the List View, the code in the item.liquid file in the Detail folder will only be displayed once instead of looped. Inside the item.liquid file, you'll have access to the "this" object, which contains the fields you'll need. See reference for available fields or output {{this | json}} in the item.liquid file to see the exact data available to you.

Add to Cart

To create a button to add the current Product to the Cart use the following Liquid code


Quantity to Add to Cart

In order to use the "Add to Cart" Button, you'll also need to have an input element where Users can select the quantity they'd like to add. Make sure it has the correct data-attribute.
