How to Add a Link Into Shopify Schema Info

The look and organization of an online shop is an important aspect of having a successful business. Shopify has developed "Theme Editor" to provide a simple way for store owners to customize their business. With this tool, Shopify stores can easily change the content of pages in a way that better matches the needs of the company. If you are someone who adapts Shopify themes for clients, it should be a priority to build an easy-to-use experience for them.

Fields Found In Theme Editor: images, texts, URLs, and others are added in the schema settings found in the corresponding section file. 

EXAMPLE #1: Add a URL of a video.

If we want to create a text field with the URL of a video added in Shopify Files, we would use something like this:


      "type": "text",

      "id": "video_url",

      "label": "Video URL",

      "info": "To add a video to Shopify, upload it using the Files page"


The result would appear like this in the Theme Editor:

EXAMPLE #2: Add a video URL and a link to the files page. 

This time, we want to help the user upload a video and we want to add a link for the words “Files page” that would open the Files page. To do this, a button label should be added to the prior example “[Button_label]” and it should be followed by the button URL inside the parenthesis “(Button_URL)”. 

The schema setting will now look like this:


      "type": "text",

      "id": "video_url",

      "label": "Video URL",

      "info": "To add a video to Shopify, upload it using the [Files page](/admin/settings/files)"


The Theme Editor field will now appear:
