If you've used Shogun's "Set as homepage" button to replace your Shopify storefront and would like to return to the original version, you can do so with just a few clicks.  We have two methods of reverting your home page to its original state.

Automatic Method

The automatic method for unsetting your home page can be found in your dashboard.

Once you have a page set as your homepage you can then revert your homepage by clicking on "page options."

Alternatively, you can also do this from the dashboard,

Click on the "Revert Homepage" button, and then follow the prompts.

You will have successfully reverted your homepage.

Start building your store with Page Builder

Manual Method

Note: "Set as homepage" is a new feature to Shogun. In the meantime, these steps can be followed if the automatic method is not appearing for you.

Go to the Themes section of your Shopify dashboard. Click on the Actions button next to your active theme and select Edit Code.

Open the index.liquid file in the Templates folder.

Click on the Older versions link that appears next to the file name.

Please note, if the theme was duplicated at any point the older versions may not have been copied over - in this case, it may not be possible to revert your homepage and it will need to be recreated manually.

That link will allow you to select an earlier version of the index.liquid file. The version labelled Original is the default template that came with your theme. Select it and click Save.

Your theme's original homepage will now be active.

Note: After you've manually reverted to the original storefront, the Shogun page may still have a "homepage" tag next to it on the dashboard. This is only an indicator tag and does not mean it is active as the current homepage on your store. The tag will remove itself when the "unset homepage" feature is released.
