Global vs Local themes

When you import a new theme into your StoreHippo store, the theme is linked to a global theme. By keeping the theme linked to a global theme has some advantages as well as a few restrictions.

Advantages of a Globally Linked Theme

  • New enhancements, bug fixes, cross-browser fixes to the widgets and theme reflect automatically in the linked theme.
  • You can still design the theme as usual. Design variables are saved locally.
  • You can override selected widgets. Only the overridden widgets will be unlinked.


The only restriction is that you can not modify the layouts or static assets
