Sexy

Sexy works well for shops with a lot of products. The product grid and sidebar make it easy for shoppers to see many items at once, then quickly navigate to categories. It’s a utilitarian theme that’ll help you start selling in record time.

Heads up: Sexy and Blocks are older themes and weren’t built to be mobile-friendly. If you want your store to look great on all devices and screen sizes automatically, you’ll want to consider one of our other built-in themes.

Features

  • Display your store’s logo in the header
  • Display a repeating background image on every page
  • List the 5 newest and/or top selling products in the sidebar
  • Set the number of featured products on your Home page (or leave them off entirely)
  • Sort featured products by their order in your admin, newest, number of sales, or number of views
  • Search field included in the sidebar
  • Display product inventory bars on Product pages

Tips

  • Recommended header image size is 740 pixels wide by any height

Customizations

If you're on a paid plan and don't mind getting your hands dirty in the code, then here are a few common advanced customization questions we get for this theme.

How can I add a welcome message to the Home page?

Just head over to Customize Design > Advanced > Home, and replace Home in the page’s title field with the text you’d rather customers see.

How can I hide the shopping cart symbol in the sidebar?

Head to Customize Design > Advanced > CSS and paste the following code at the very bottom:

#minicart {
  background: none
}

How can I change the side navigation from the right to the left side?

You may want to consider switching to our built-in Lunch Break theme, which has very similar features to Sexy and has a setting in the admin to display the navigation on either side of the page. Otherwise, check out this free theme available from Tonka Park - the code has already been written, so you just need to follow the instructions to apply it.

How can I change the number of columns from three to four?

You may want to consider switching to our built-in Lunch Break theme, which has very similar features to Sexy and has a setting in the admin for changing the number of columns. Otherwise, check out this free theme from Aarcade — they’ve done the work for you in changing from a three to four column theme.

How can I remove the background color that frames the product thumbnails?

Head to *Customize Design > Advanced > CSS and paste the following code at the very bottom:

#main-content, #products {
  background: none
}
#products div.product, #products .product-info {
  border-top: none
}

How can I change how currency is displayed in the store?

You’ll want to make that change in a few places. Head to Customize > Design > Advanced. Then you’ll want to find the following code in your HTML within your Layout page, Products page, Product page, and Cart page: money_with_sign

If you want both the sign and currency code you’ll change it to money_with_sign_and_code

If you just want the currency code displayed you’ll change it to money_with_code
