Single App Blocks

An overview of all Shopify App Blocks that come with Single and how to use them.

What are App Blocks?

Shopify app blocks are a type of modular content that can be used to customize the look and functionality of your Shopify store. They are essentially pre-built widgets or components that you can drag and drop into your store's pages to add new features or design elements.

They save you time and effort in designing your store. Instead of starting from scratch, you can simply select the app block that best fits your needs and customize it to meet your needs. 

If you don’t have app blocks available in your theme editor, that means you’re using a Shopify 1.0 theme and may want to upgrade. Here’s a Shopify article on the topic

Additionally, it is important to note that this functionality will not be available to test on trial themes.

What app blocks come with Single?

When you install and use Single, we automatically create all of the pages you need to do things like launching a Membership or gating access to content (products, pages, or videos). 

That said, if you’re a more advanced Shopify user and want to do more customizations on your store, we also offer App Blocks to ensure maximum flexibility and store customization.

Memberships: Login Form

This block lets visitors authenticate to gain access to your gated content (products, videos, pages etc.). It first shows a login screen and/or a ‘connect web3 wallet’ option. 

After users authenticate, they will be taken to a page with all content they’re permitted to access. We automatically use this block in front of any content you gate in Single.

When to use it:

  • Use if you want to create your own authentication page by adding the App Block to a page template, applying it to a page, and pasting that page's URL in the Redirect URL field in the Block's settings.
