Custom Home 2

Page Template

Suitable for Any Aarcade Theme


Custom home page templates are displayed in Aarcade theme previews as an example of using custom content for a shop home page.

Additionally, this page uses the inbuilt shortcode system, unique to Aarcade themes, to display a gallery of sample images.

See installation instructions below.


Make sure you have an Aarcade theme installed before proceeding with the following instructions. This extra will only work with an Aarcade theme.

Read the shortcodes support article. Understanding Aarcade’s shortcode system will help you get the most out of this page template.

Create a new custom page, as detailed in the support article How do I add a page to my Big Cartel shop?, and name it “x ic home”. Note that an “x ic home” page replaces all home page content. You could also use “x ic before home”, any other “x ic” page (refer to Insert Content for more information on “x ic” pages) or a standard new page.


Switch to HTML edit mode before proceeding – refer How do I switch to HTML edit mode?

Copy all of the code in the code box below and paste it into your new custom page content area.

Edit the content as required. As a minimum you will need to:

  • Replace the sample video with your own. Refer to How do I insert a video into my Big Cartel page? to upload and insert your video (no hosting required).
  • Review and edit the gallery settings as required – ref. Shortcodes > gallery. Note:
    • The link setting has been used on each image to link to local product category pages. Change these links for each image as required.
  • Edit or remove the paragraph tag – <p> – at the end of the template. Note that this tag’s appearance has been edited with inline styles.

Click the Save link when you are done editing your page content.
