The Shopify team working within the Admin made some very nice updates to the way that shipping rates are handled and shown. Unfortunately for ShopifyFD users, that killed off the copy and paste feature, but now it's back.
I've done a few different Liquid only sorting posts here before so let's run over another. This one will cover sorting products based on the stock count of product (and variants within).
MailChimp data driven campaigns can be automatically filled with content pulled directly from your RSS feed. This is pretty darn cool, but a common issue for Shopify custom feeds is that the image does not appear - let's fix that.
If you're using Disqus (like me) you'll find that existing comments on your Shopify post will vanish after making any change to the handle. With a minor addition to your embed code you can keep rocking those old comments without concern.
A common question that pops up from Shopify Merchants is how can the article ID be removed from the Article URL. The answer is super simple (and built in!) thanks to recent update.
Offsite backup, cloning and copying your Shopify store might prove an interesting challenge, but the API does give you all the tools you need to do cover the important things. Let's explore some free options along with any apps that might be about.
