7. How Tapita works with your theme

Tapita works with both Shopify Online Store 1.0 & 2.0

Tapita does not replace your theme. The Header and Footer of your website are still managed by your theme. What Tapita does is help you modify the body section - the content between the Header and Footer. You can use Tapita to create new pages, or replace existing pages on your site.

When Tapita is installed, it creates a bunch of template files that will be used to generate your pages content. It also creates a backup of your Home page in case you replace it with a Tapita page and later want to revert back the original version.
You can check it in your Shopify Admin > Online Store > Themes > Actions > Edit code.

When you create a page in Tapita, it also creates a page in your Theme > Pages. So basically it creates a blank Shopify page, with a code to inject the content that you creates in Tapita into it.

What happens when I change my theme?

When you change your Shopify Theme, Tapita will automatically work with your new theme. There is nothing that you need to do from your side.
