To give you a clearer look into the whole process, we’ll be editing our Erin Recommends category block:

  • Store View (*): the store view to which your configurations will be applied.
  • Image: The image of your category block which will be shown on your storefront. If no image is set, the category block will default to using your category’s default image (and in cases when no default category image is set, the background image will be black).

Recommended size: width: 500px, height: 240px | Allowed file types: JPG, GIF, PNG

  • Category (*): The category that this category block will link to. Do note that the name of the category that you link to will also be the title of your category block.

  • Sort Order: The position of this category block on your homepage, with 1 being the first block from the left/top. As you can see, our Erin Recommends category block is set at sort order number 2, which is right after the first block.

When no sort order number is set, the currently configuring category block will be placed after the furthest right category block.
