Shopify Dynamic Sections No Longer Showing After Theme Transfer
I built a custom Shopify theme under the Partners program under "Development Stores".
There are a bunch of dynamic "sections" I setup. I transferred this theme to a client store. After the transfer, they no longer appear though and the only way to update the site is under the config/settings_data.json.
Where should I look to start debugging to get them to appear? I'm a little stuck. Thoughts? Attached is screenshots of exactly what I'm talking about.
When you added content to sections via the "Customization" process on the development store you're showing in screenshots, you weren't making changes to that development store's theme -- you're just adding content in that development store's database that's processed by the theme you'd created/installed.
There's two solutions:
1) Recreate all of the section content on your client's store.
2) Simply transfer ownership of the development store you created to your client. Aside from saving you a lot of time, it'll also mean Shopify will send you a cut of your client's Shopify monthly subscription fees.
