Customization & Styling in Bold Discounts

  • Updated

Bold Discounts offers some additional customizations that can be applied in your theme to add onto the functionality of the app. While some of these customizations are for only for certain themes, the other customizations can be applied onto all other themes available on Shopify.

This help article goes over the customizations and the setup of each customization that are available in Discount.

Please Create a Discount with Bold Discounts to ensure the customization you added to your theme is working correctly.

Note: Making adjustments to Bold Discounts requires knowledge of Liquid code. If you are not comfortable with adding Liquid code to your theme, one of our partners could complete one of these customizations or a similar customization as a paid customization on your store. Please visit HeyCarson via this form.

    {% capture discount %}
    {{ product.compare_at_price_max | minus:product.price | times:100 | divided_by:product.compare_at_price_max }}%

Symmetry Theme Search Box Modification

Discounts does not hide duplicate and hidden products with Symmetry's search box through the out of box install instructions available. Hiding the duplicate and hidden products requires some extra code that needs to be added into the theme's liquid code.

Note If you are not familiar with liquid code, please Request a Bold Discounts Installation.

To remove the hidden products from the search drop-down and prevent them from showing up in the search quantities, please follow these steps:

  1. Duplicate themes, to create a backup copy.
  2. From Shopify's admin, select Online Store.
  3. Select Actions.
  4. Select Edit code.
  5. Under "Config", select search.json.liquid.
  6. Replace all code in the file with this:
    {% layout none %}
    {% comment %} Inspired by: {% endcomment %}
    {% paginate search.results by10 %} {% capture output %}
    {% assign first = 1 %}{% for result in search.results %}
    {% if result.metafields.inventory.ShappifyHidden == "true" %}{% else %} {% if first == 1 %}{% assign first = 0 %}{% else %},{% endif %} {% assign resultURL = result.url %}
     {% assign thumbURL = result.images[0] | product_img_url: 'thumb' %}
     {"title":"{{ result.title | replace: '\\', '\\\\' | replace: '"', '\\"' | replace: '/','\\/' }}",
     "url""{{ result.url; | replace: '\\', '\\\\' | replace: '"', '\\"' | replace: '/','\\/' }}",
    "thumb""{{ thumbURL | replace: '\\', '\\\\' | replace: '"', '\\"' | replace: '/','\\/' }}",
    "id":{{}} }
    {% endif %}{% endfor %}
    {% endcapture %}
    {% comment %} Output the json object {% endcomment %}
    {"results_total":{{paginate.items}},"results":[{{ output | strip_newlines }}]}
    {% endpaginate %}
  7. Select Save.
  8. Under "Templates", select search.liquid.
  9. Comment out this line:
    <h5>We found {{ paginate.items }} {{ paginate.items | pluralize: 'result','results' }}</h5>

    Note to comment out a line, enter <!-- before it and --> after it, the result looks like this:

    <!-- <h5>We found {{ paginate.items }} {{ paginate.items | pluralize: 'result','results' }}</h5> -->
  10. Select Save.
  11. Under "Assets", select main.js.liquid.
  12. Remove (' + data.results_total + ') from this line:
    $resultsBox.append('<a href="' + linkURL + '" class="note">See all results (' + data.results_total + ')</a>');

    The result looks like this:

    $resultsBox.append('<ahref="' + linkURL + '"class"note">See all results</a>'
  13. Select Save.
