You can adjust what information product pages display in Capital. Most of the settings live in the general settings area under Product item. However, if you want to add a related products block or a recently viewed products block, then you need to go to the Product content settings area. In order to get there, you need to navigate to a product page while using Shopify’s theme editor. That way, the Product content area appears in the list of theme settings, and you can preview the changes you make to those settings right away.
- Enable related products
- Select this checkbox to turn on a related products block on each product page. Related products are any products that are in the same collection as the selected product. See an example.
- Enable recently viewed products
- Select this checkbox to turn on a recently viewed products block on each product page. This shows your customers other products they have recently looked at. See an example.
The related products block can be enabled using the Enable related products checkbox. This displays a list of related products from your shop. The list is generated by any products that belong in the same collection as the selected product.
If the item is not in a collection with other products, Capital will search for another product collection. It goes through your collections alphabetically and picks the first collection with products in it. The
Frontpage collections are skipped.
Recently viewed products
The recently viewed products block can be enabled using the Enable recently viewed products checkbox. This displays a list of products that the customer has looked at.
In addition to seeing this section on product pages, you can enable it on the cart page from the Cart settings.
