Pipeline 6 is designed for Shopify Online Store 2.0. For customers who are already using Pipeline 6 or above and also updating to a newer version, these tips will help you migrate your current shop settings and sections over to a newer version of Pipeline. Full video walkthrough on how to migrate your settings and sections:
Steps covered in the video:
Making a duplicate of your live theme (required)
Copy current Pipeline 6 settings to a newer version of Pipeline (example Pipeline 6.1.1)
Copy all sections, blocks, and section settings (including homepage sections) from the current live theme to the newer version of Pipeline.
When copying over your sections, section blocks, and section settings, these are the JSON files listed in the Templates folder:
The blue dot next to the filename indicates the file has been modified or updated which also means you will need to copy all the code from that file to your new theme version. These JSON files store all your sections, section blocks, and section settings when using Shopify Online Store 2.0.
If you're are running Pipeline 6.0 or 6.1.0 and updating to a newer version, sections that contain a background color dropdown will have to be manually updated.
Example: If a Pipeline 6.1.0 theme has a newsletter popup setup with a dark background:
Updating to Pipeline 6.1.1 or higher will require a manual change. The dropdown will appear as
Default even after you migrate your settings file:
Pipeline 6.1.1 introduced a new feature, color palettes. The settings_data.json file in Pipeline 6.0 and 6.1.0 did not store that information resulting in the Background color dropdown being reset to Default.
Check sections that have used the Background color dropdown and update them from
Default to your preferred color scheme.
