Sometimes in Shopify you’ll need to have a unique image heading the page. With Shopify you only get one field to input data for your pages, so here’s a little workaround.
Sometimes you install plugins, addons and tweaks to Shopify which use specific versions of jQuery. Sometimes this breaks every other script written in a theme. I’m writting this as a note to myself mostly but may help others.
Old news, but if you want a mobile version of your shop for Shopify, no need to pay me to do it, it’s free!
Congrats to Peter and the gang at TTL on the launch, love this site!
Stoked is now properly configured to display compare at price, in other words ON SALE. There is a new theme settings tab that will allow you to configure ON SALE tag settings.
I’ve updated the Shopify Elegant theme to now support Shopify’s customer account feature.
If you have a WordPress Blog and want to make the move to Shopify you can now easily import all the important stuff with a free app from Shopify. If you watch the video, you’ll notice a very sexy voice. :)
Shopify now has customer accounts for shops. You need to make some changes to your shop to enable them. In the next few weeks I will be adding these to my Shopify themes elegant and stoked. If I’ve helped or created your shop, please contact me directly to have me enable this for your shop.

Some fixes and additions have been made to the Stoked theme on Shopify.
Since the launch of my theme over at the app store, I’ve been getting some frequently asked questions so I thought I’d compile them along with some general help. If you have suggestions, comments and questions about the theme please feel free to post on the Elegant page and I will be glad to help.
Shopify has just opened a theme store where you can purchase affordable themes for your online Shop! They’ve done a great job as the site looks amazing.

There’s a small glitch in the theme where the top navigation bar elements are not sperated by a line.
I’m being asked this question allot so figured I would make a tutorial on how to change the company name from text to an image so folks can upload their company logos to the header.
I’ve been asked how to do this a countless number of times and finally it is here!
Looks like the Shopify folk are pumping out many great features lately! Another marvelous feature and often requested is having the ability to let guests comment on Shopify blog posts! For the longest time, people needed to keep their blog separated because this was important to them and maintaining two sites is less then ideal.
Adding hundreds of products will be much more convenient now that Shopify has introduced CSV import. Some news about it here.
Seems like my former manager, client, former manager have started up a blog over at http://www.startupottawa.com/. Needless to say it’s a blog about for the startup/tech scene in Ottawa, Canada. Some interesting posts here, I just may have to subscribe to their news feeds.

The Shopify marketplace has recently launched and I must say is quite kick ass. The functionality allows you to search the thousands of Shopify stores for products, even within a certain price range. The featured shop of the day is also quite cool. Very nice work guys.
The magnificent folks over at Jaded Pixel recently celebrated their 1 year anniversary of the Shopify launch. Working with the many Shopify shop owners on their stores is one of the most pleasant types of projects I get to do. I congratulate them and thank them kindly for all the business they send my way.
