How can we help?
Now, you probably won’t want to leave the duplicate as simply ‘Copy of…’, as this may get confusing, especially with more than one. We would suggest a naming convention which will help with future backups too. In this case we’re going to use the name of the theme, an underscore and the date in ISO 8601 format (YYYY-MM-DD). You don’t have to do this but find something that you are confident with and be consistent.
Make sure to take regular backups if you are planning on regular updates. It only takes a few minutes but gives you added reassurance that you can revert back to an older version of your theme at any point.
You may want to try a new theme but want to know what it looks like before publishing. In this case, you can even take a second copy to test edit the styles within the theme settings without affecting the main website.
The above article will hopefully help you to understand how to take a backup of your Shopify theme. We plan to add more throughout the coming months. If however, you’d like to discuss a particular Shopify query that we’ve not yet covered, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
