  • number of products per row in the product grid
  • size of product images
  • text styles of product titles and descriptions
  • text and styles of product labels
  • styles of product reviews
  • styles of the Add to cart button

Auto Theme Detector starts working automatically after installing the app. See the details hereIt can also be started manually at any time.

    If the theme’s auto-detection fails, you will see an appropriate message. The most popular reason – your store is in development and password-protected. The Auto Theme Detector can’t analyze such stores. You can try restarting it after your store become not password-protected.
