1. Can I use 2 themes for PageFly pages?

No, you cannot. You can use only 1 theme for all PageFly pages.

2. Is it possible to preview the unpublished theme for PageFly pages?

No, it’s impossible. PageFly pages only work with one published theme, so you have to publish the theme you want.

3. How can I make my PageFly pages use my new theme?

Once you publish your theme or migrate the PageFly content from an old theme to a new one, PageFly pages will automatically apply that theme.

In some cases, some PageFly pages haven’t been synced, so you need to check again and republish these pages.

For example, if your store has too many pages that it might reach Shopify API’s limitation, some pages might not be synced properly at one time. Therefore, you should double-check all your PageFly pages.
