Foodie - Theme settings

Theme settings exist to control the appearance of content and set the base style for your store. Where sections might have their own individual settings, theme settings are here to cover repeated or static content.

Control type across your store

    Selects the main font for body text + set it's size
  • Navigation

Checkout colors and styles are injected by Shopify into the theme settings for every Shopify theme. These options allow you to set your preferred color scheme for the checkout which is commonly shared by all Shopify stores.

Theme developers do not have access, nor can they edit the checkout layout, design or code structure.
