Hint: If you have made a mistake and then saved the liquid file, don’t panic! 😊 Shopify keeps the old versions of the file:
- Click on the Older versions link located at the top bar, next to the file name (product-template.liquid)
Use the drop-down to select a previous version that doesn’t break the page, and
press the Save button.
If you cannot see any video on your product page, ensure that:

- You have enabled the video using the slider.
Note that, in older versions of some templates, you may have to place the Shopideo Code snippet inside the file Templates\product.liquid.
