With Zipify Pages you can build high quality, conversion tested landing pages with a few clicks of your mouse. The app and pages built are fully integrated with Shopify.
Zipify Pages includes several templates that come directly from our businesses that you can customize to use on your store.
You can also build your own page from scratch using our large (and growing) selection of header, content, footer and other page blocks.
Some of the pages that can be created with Zipify Pages include the following:
- Pre-sell pages
- Email landing pages
- Product offer pages
- Holiday sales pages
- Special Offer pages
- A fully functional store Blog and more!
You can also collect leads to build your database for your preferred CRM system.
You're able to create all of these types of pages from scratch using our wide variety of predefined page blocks or use one of our amazing pre-built page templates!
Application Assets Management
- The first thing you need to do once Zipify Pages is installed on your store is to read and accept the Terms Of Service agreement. Then you'll able to access the app's admin interface.
- After Zipify Pages is installed, all of the app files which are needed to function correctly are automatically added into your Theme.
The Zipify Pages app adds some Assets into your Shopify theme. These Assets will not affect your theme, they just give us the functionality needed to publish pages and blog posts. Assets include Snippet and Template files.
At Settings > General > Advanced Settings > Application Assets Management, you are able to manage the app's assets:
Click the Refresh button to restore the app's Assets to their initial state in-case you encounter any issues with the application.
Click the Remove button to remove the app's Assets from your theme before deleting the app from your store. The list of Assets you'll need to remove manually after clicking this button, if desired, can be found at the bottom of this help article.
*Note: If you change your Shopify theme, you'll need to click the Refresh button to add our Assets to your new theme so that the app will function properly again.
Publishing a New Store Theme?
If you change your store's theme, you'll need to click the Refresh button to add our Assets to your new theme so that the app will function properly again. This is not required if you are only updating or modifying your currently published theme.
Note: If the “Use theme header/footer” option is being used for certain pages, then the page.custom.zipifypages.liquid Template file which controls those pages isn’t being updated when you publish a new theme or if you update the header/footer on your existing theme, so some additional actions are needed to get that to update:
1. If no changes were applied to the
page.custom.zipifypages.liquid file manually before the new theme was published, then you just need to delete the
page.custom.zipifypages.liquid file by going to Online store > Themes > Actions > Edit code > Templates. After that just click the Refresh button under Application Assets Management.
This will create a new
page.custom.zipifypages.liquid file which is ready to work with your new theme.
2. If changes were manually applied to the
page.custom.zipifypages.liquid file before publishing your new theme, then you need to manually transfer code from
theme.liquid (Online store > Themes > Actions > Edit code > Layout > theme.liquid ) into the
page.custom.zipifypages.liquid file (Online store > Themes > Actions > Edit code > Templates > page.custom.zipifypages.liquid) to preserve the changes you applied before publishing the new theme.
Deleting Zipify Pages:
If you no longer wish to continue using the app, then Deleting it from the Apps section of your Shopify admin will trigger the subscription cancellation process with Shopify.
Before you do that though, you should navigate to Settings > General > Advanced Settings > Application Assets Management and click the Remove Assets button there:
NOTE: After clicking the Remove Assets button, it will remove most of the Template and Snippet files which were added to your theme by the Zipify Pages app.
This means all published pages will remain on your site, but they will lack the needed styles and code so they will look improperly formatted and function incorrectly.
If you want to completely hide all of the published Zipify Pages pages from your store, you'll need to un-publish them first from the Pages section of the app by clicking the Status switcher for each one:
IMPORTANT! Always click the Remove Assets button before deleting the app from your Shopify store.
Details about app Assets including Template and Snippet files
Once the Zipify Pages app is installed, it adds the following Assets (Template and Snippet files) to your Shopify store Theme:
includes of Zipify Pages are being added to the theme.liquid and to the each product[.*].liquid file.
When first enabling the Homepage feature for Zipify Pages, it adds the
index.original.zipifypages.liquid Snippet file (which is a backup copy of the original Homepage file called
index.liquid which is a Template file).
