Overview:

Updates need to be done on all theme files that pull product information to the storefront. The number and name of these files will vary from theme to theme. Generally, three to five files will need to be updated.

These control the product information on the product, collection, search, related products, and home pages. It's important that each theme file that pulls this information be edited. This is to ensure the correct information always shows for your customers.

Note: This will require you to go back and edit multiple files within your theme coding.

Go through the list of files, one at a time, and then reference your theme's files to see if that particular file exists in your theme. Not all of these files will exist in a given theme.


List of Theme Files to Update:

  • Templates: Themes should contain most of these files. If your theme is using "Sections", these files will be located within the "Sections" folder as *-template.liquid files.
    • collection.liquid
    • list-collections.liquid
    • search.liquid
  • Sections & Snippets: Any given theme should typically have a few of these files.
    • collection-template.liquid
    • featured-collection.liquid
    • product-full.liquid
    • product-loop.liquid
    • product-recommendations
    • product-slider.liquid
    • related-products.liquid

Not all of these will appear in a given file, but the ones that do may appear several times.


Code Adjustments Required:

Your theme's product loop code should look similar to this:

{% for product in collection.products %}

Find For Product

The following code should be inserted directly after each instance:

<script type="application/json" class="bold-product-json">{{ product | json }}</script>

Paste for product script

In some cases, the product loop code may look slightly different:

{% for item in search.results %}

Find For Item

We then need to adjust the end of our Bold price code to include the loop's product reference:

Note: Visit Product Loop Code Variations for more information on what this coding may look like.

<script type="application/json" class="bold-product-json">{{ item | json }}</script>

Paste for item script

Overview:

Updates need to be done on all theme files that output product prices on the site. The number and name of these files will vary from theme to theme. Generally, three to five files will need to be updated.

These control the price fields on the product, collection, search, related products, and home pages. It's important that each theme file that outputs a price be modified. This is to ensure the correct pricing always shows for your customers.

Note: This will require you to go back and edit multiple files within your theme coding.

Go through the list of files, one at a time, and then reference your theme's files to see if that particular file exists in your theme. Not all of these files will exist in a given theme.


List of Theme Files to Update:

  • Templates: Themes should contain most of these files. If your theme is using "Sections", these files will be located within the "Sections" folder as *-template.liquid files.
    • product.liquid
    • index.liquid
    • collection.liquid
    • search.liquid
  • Sections & Snippets: Any given theme should typically have a few of these files.
    • featured-product.liquid
    • product-card.liquid
    • product-grid-item.liquid
    • product-form.liquid
    • product-template.liquid
    • related-products.liquid

Code adjustments required:

Your theme's product price code should look similar to this:

{{ product.price | money }}

Find Product Price

The following code should be placed around each of these instances with the <span> tags wrapping this price code:

<span class="money" data-product-id="{{ product.id }}">{{ product.price | money }}</span>

Paste Product Price Span

In some cases, the product price code may look slightly different:

{{ item.price | money }}

Find Item Price

The following code should still be placed around each of these instances with the <span> tags wrapping this price code:

Note: Visit Product Price Code Variations for more information on what this coding may look like.

<span class="money" data-product-id="{{ item.id }}">{{ item.price | money }}</span>

Paste item id span

Overview:

Updates need to be done on the cart files that pull your product price information to the cart. The number and name of these files will vary from theme to theme.

It's important that each theme file that pulls this price information be edited. This is to ensure the correct information always shows for your customers.

Note: This may require you to go back and edit multiple files within your theme coding.

Go through the list of files, one at a time, and then reference your theme's files to see if that particular file exists in your theme. Not all of these files will exist in a given theme.


List of Theme Files to Update:

    • cart.liquid
  • Sections & Snippets:
    • cart-ajax.liquid
    • cart-content.liquid
    • cart-template.liquid


Code Adjustments Required:

First, you'll need to find each instance of coding that looks similar to this:

{{ item.price | money }}

Find Cart Item Price

The following code should be placed around each of these instances with the <span> tags wrapping this code:

<span class="money" data-line-index="{{ forloop.index0 }}">{{ item.price | money }}</span>

Paste Cart Item Span

Next you'll need to find each instance of coding that looks similar to this:

{{ item.line_price | money }}

Find Cart Line Item Price

The following code should be placed around each of these instances with the <span> tags wrapping this code:

<span class="money" data-line-total data-line-index="{{ forloop.index0 }}">{{ item.line_price | money }}</span>

Paste Cart Line Item Span

Lastly, you'll need to find each instance of coding that looks similar to this:

{{ cart.total_price | money }}

Find Cart Total Price

The following code should be placed around each of these instances with the <span> tags wrapping this code:

<span class="money" data-cart-total>{{ cart.total_price | money }}</span>

Paste Cart Total Span

 Caution

Not all of the following coding snippets will need to be inserted into your theme. You will need to determine the function your theme uses to build your Ajax modals and install the appropriate coding from there. This section requires advanced knowledge of JavaScript and web coding to complete. If you are not comfortable with this, please contact our Merchant Success team for further assistance.

Overview:

For themes that use Ajax functionalities, updates must be made to the JavaScript files that build these Ajax pages and/or modals. The file name and location of this code will vary from theme to theme.

Note: Only required for themes that have Ajax functions.

These updates are done to ensure the correct product price displays every time it's shown on your storefront. This may require you to go back and edit multiple files in your theme coding.


List of Theme Files to Update:

  • Assets: Your theme may contain one or a few of these files. The required coding adjustment(s) are explained in the next section.
    • ajax-cart.js.liquid
    • ajaxify-cart.js.liquid

Code Adjustments Required:

Themes that pass cart objects between your regular cart and the Ajax modals will need to use our Cart Doctor function.

Most themes will use the function buildCart to show your products in their Ajax modals and pass this information between both areas.

You'll need to find where this code is in one of the above files, and paste the following code within this function:

// Bold:PRE
if(typeof window.BOLD !== 'undefined'
&& typeof window.BOLD.common !== 'undefined'
&& typeof window.BOLD.common.cartDoctor !== 'undefined') {
// NOTE: "cart" should be the variable containing the cart JSON data
cart = window.BOLD.common.cartDoctor.fix(cart);
}
// Bold:PRE

buildCart Example

Some themes may use the function refreshCart to show your items in these modals.

You'll need to find where this code is in one of the above files, and paste the following code within this function:

// Bold:PRE
if(typeof window.BOLD !== 'undefined'
&& typeof window.BOLD.common !== 'undefined'
&& typeof window.BOLD.common.cartDoctor !== 'undefined') {
// NOTE: "cart" should be the variable containing the cart JSON data
cart = window.BOLD.common.cartDoctor.fix(cart);
}
// Bold:PRE

refreshCart Example

Themes that simply display the information from your cart in the Ajax modals will need to use our Event Emitter function.

Most themes will pull this information by using the getCartData function.

Note: If Bold Upsell's Ajax code is already installed on your theme, you do not need to install this code. It should already be contained in your theme files.

You'll need to find where this code is in one of the above files, and paste the following code within this function:

// Bold:PRE
if (window.BOLD && BOLD.common && BOLD.common.eventEmitter &&
   typeof BOLD.common.eventEmitter.emit === 'function'){
BOLD.common.eventEmitter.emit('BOLD_COMMON_cart_loaded');
}
// Bold:PRE

getCartData Example

Some themes will grab this information through the updateView function.

You'll need to find where this code is in one of the above files, and paste the following code within this function:

// Bold:PRE
if (window.BOLD && BOLD.common && BOLD.common.eventEmitter &&
   typeof BOLD.common.eventEmitter.emit === 'function'){
BOLD.common.eventEmitter.emit('BOLD_COMMON_cart_loaded');
}
// Bold:PRE

updateView Example

To install the sales icon in your theme code, please follow these steps:

  1. Under "Templates", select product.liquid

    Note: If your theme is using "Sections", the code for this may be contained in the product-template.liquid file.

  2. Copy and paste the following code where you want the sale icon to appear:
    <div class="sale-icon-container" data-product-id="{{ product.id }}"></div>

    Note: You can place this code anywhere within the theme file. We generally recommend placing it above the product image.

    Insert Code

  3. Select Save.

Note: When a sale has an end date applied to the sale, a clock will appear on the product page beneath the product title by default. The steps below are only required if you want to change the placement of the sales clock. 

To install the sales clock in your theme code, please select your preferred placement method and follow the steps: 


Product Page

  1. Under "Templates", select product.liquid

    Note: If your theme is using "Sections", the code for this may be contained in the product-template.liquid file.

  2. Copy and paste the following code where you want the sales clock to appear:
    <div class="sale-clock-container" data-product-id="{{ product.id }}"></div>

    Note: You can place this code anywhere within this theme file.

    Insert Code

  3. Select Save.

    <div class="sale-clock-container" data-product-id="{{ collections['all'].products.first.id }}"></div>

    Note: This code will only display the clock if you are running a site-wide sale. You'll need to specify the ID of an on-sale product, in this code, if your sale is not a global discount. You can also place this code anywhere within this theme file. We generally recommend placing it near the top of the file.

    Insert Code Collection

  3. Select Save.



Home Page

  1. Under "Templates", select index.liquid
  2. Copy and paste the following code at the top of this file:
    <div class="sale-clock-container" data-product-id="{{ collections['all'].products.first.id }}"></div>

    Note: This code will only display the clock if you are running a site-wide sale. You'll need to specify the ID of an on-sale product, in this code, if your sale is not a global discount.

    Insert Code ndex

  3. Select Save.
