Filed in Adding pages and templates
1. Add a Page
In your shop admin area, navigate to your Customize design > Pages () admin area and click the Add Page icon () at the top right of the page list.
2. Enter Page Title
Enter your new page title in the Page name field and ensure that your Show inside theme layout HTML option is checked.
3. Enter Content
Enter page content into the text box. This can be plain text or you can use HTML tags and in-line styles to customise formatting. Before entering content, note the following:
- If you are using HTML, shortcodes or our Extras pages you must first switch to HTML edit mode – refer How do I switch to HTML edit mode?
- You can enter full screen edit mode by clicking the at the bottom right of the customise area.
For templates of common pages – e.g. Blog, Lookbook, About Us, etc. – refer to our Extras section.
4. Save Changes
Exit fullscreen mode (if applicable) by clicking and click the Save link at the top of the page edit controls. Your new page is now included in your shop page list.
Note that if you return to the edit area for your new page, the location of the new page is the final part of your edit area URL. In the above example, the edit area URL for the Terms & Conditions page is:
To visit your page in the public space, you add this location to the end of your shop’s home page URL. For example, if the shop home page is,
then the location of the new page in this example would be,
Important: Once you have added a page, you can change its title but you can not change its location. This safeguard is applied to ensure that there are no broken links to your page; for example, if someone has linked to your page from their blog it is important that the URL they used remains unchanged.
The only way to change a page’s URL is to delete it and then re-add it.
Delete a page
To delete a page, navigate to your admin page list – Customize design > Pages () – and click the delete icon that appears inline with the page title.
For information on how to control the way your Page links are shown in your shop menu, refer to the article How do I control the page navigation in my Big Cartel shop?
5. Link to the New Page
Your Aarcade Big Cartel theme will automatically include a link to your new page in your shop navigation. If you want to add a link to your new page somewhere else within your store or from an external site, you will need to use a HTML link tag as follows:
Where LINKURL = the destination URL for the link and LINKTEXT could be any text you want to convert to link text. Note that the link tag must be closed with </a>.
In our case the destination URL is http://myshop.bigcartel.com/terms-conditions, so our complete code now becomes:
