HandleAny characters allowed in a URLThis is what your store visitors will see in the Pages URL address like this: https://mystore.com/pages/contact-us

URL address has a great impact on SEO, so be sure to give it a meaningful name.
Regardless, what you write here, the app will convert it to lowercase, and remove all non-URL friendly symbols.
You can leave it empty when creating new Pages – in that case, the app will generate it for you from Title.

If the handle will have non-Latin characters like Chinese, Arabic or Russian, or any other language, it will get “transliterated” to the similar-sounding Latin letters by default. You can switch this option off in Options upon importing by unchecking “Transliterate Handles to English alphabet”.

Whatever you will put in the Handle column, the app will convert it to the required Handle format, which is acceptable by Shopify.

When updating Handle the app by default will also create a Redirect from old Handle to the new one. You can turn this off in the Import options with importing a file.

In Shopify, all Handles have a limitation of 255 characters, so any Handle longer than that will be truncated to 255 characters.

Command
  • NEW
  • UPDATE
  • REPLACE
  • DELETE
When importing Page row – tell the app, what to do with it:

  • NEW: will try to create a new Page with the provided details. If such Page will already exist (with the same ID or same Handle), then the result will be Failed.
  • UPDATE: will try to find existing Page, and update it with data from the row. If such Page will not be found, then it will create new.
  • REPLACE: at first, if such Page with provided ID or Handle exists, then the app will delete it. After that, it will create a new one. If an existing Page will not be found, then still the app will create a new one. The difference from UPDATE is that it will not keep any of columns, which were not included in the import file since the Page will be deleted and re-created.
  • DELETE: the app will delete the existing Page, which is found by ID or Handle. If such Page will not be found, then the result will be Failed. This DELETE command is very handy for deleting Pages in bulk.

If no Command is specified, then the app will assume the UPDATE command.
