Back up your theme

If you’ve made advanced code changes to your shop’s theme, it’s always a good idea to keep a copy of those changes on hand. Whether you decide to take some time away from your shop or maybe start fresh with a new theme, you’ll have that customized code on hand to easily add back in.


  1. Head to the area in your admin.
  2. Click Customize design.
  3. Click the Advanced tab and then click Download your current theme.
  4. You can add your code changes back in to your shop, by opening up your downloaded theme files, copying the code, and pasting those changes in (e.g. - changes to products.html will go in the Products page in the admin).
  5. When you’re finished, click Done and Save.
