How do I restore my original Shopify homepage?

Simple steps to revert your Shopify homepage to the theme's original version.

Updated over a week ago

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.

Reverting from the Dashboard

To switch back to your theme's homepage, go to your Shogun dashboard and click the 3-dot icon next to your set homepage. Next, select the "Revert homepage" option in the dropdown menu.

Reverting from the Editor

You can also unset the homepage from the Shogun editor. First, open the homepage in your Shogun editor. Click the 3-dot icon in the upper-right corner and select the "Page Settings" option.

Next, click the "Revert homepage" button within the Page Settings menu.

A prompt will appear asking you to confirm that you'd like to revert back to your theme. Once you've confirmed your selecting, your theme's homepage will now show on your storefront instead of your Shogun page.

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.
