How do I add pages as seen in Aarcade previews, like FAQ, About Us, etc.?

Every Aarcade theme preview includes a page titled This Preview. By clicking this link at one of our previews, and scrolling down to the section Pages, you will find a list of all the pages used for the preview.

This list not only includes standard pages like FAQ, About Us, etc., but also special purpose pages including:

Copying this content to your own shop (and editing as needed) allows you to replicate a preview and is also a great way to get familiar with the tools built into your Aarcade theme. Remember that you can copy content from any preview, not just the preview for your installed theme.

Copying pages from previews

To use any page’s content as a template for your own page:

  1. Click any page title to view the page content code.
  2. Select and copy all of the code.
  3. Navigate to the Customize design > Pages area of your Big Cartel admin.
  4. Add a new page — How do I add a page to my Big Cartel shop? — or select an existing one.
  5. Switch to HTML edit mode — How do I switch to HTML edit mode?
  6. Paste your copied code into the page.
  7. Replace the sample images and text with your own content (refer to other articles in the support category Creating Pages & Custom Content) and edit code as reqiuired.
  8. Click the Done button and Save link when finished.

This improved system of sharing page templates replaces the Extras system provided for previous Aarcade themes.
