Shopify includes a blogging platform that lets you create blogs and write blog posts. The Blog template lists blog posts for your customers.

Show blog-specific navigation

You may have multiple blogs (e.g. recipes, news) on your online store. Additionally, each blog may contain blog posts with different tags (e.g. paleo, vegan). You can show blog-specific navigation to let customers browse all the blogs on your online store.

In order to show blog-specific navigation, you must:

  • create a menu,
  • add the menu to the Blog template.

  4. Under Menu items, click Add menu item.
  5. In the Link field, search for an existing blog on your online store.
  6. Click Add.
  7. Repeat steps 4–6 for each blog you want to add to the menu.
