Advanced: Manual Snippet Uninstallation

Recipe Kit automatically creates and installs a few different code snippets on your active Shopify theme. Once you delete the recipe from Recipe Kit, it will no longer display on your blog posts; but in case you want to remove any of the other code lying around, follow the instructions below to do so.

Let’s get started!

1. Open your Shopify theme code editor.

While logged into your Shopify admin, click "Online Store" and you will be shown the "Themes" screen below. Click "Actions" on your active theme and then select the "Edit Code" option to open the code editor of your Shopify theme.

2. Find your article template file.

Within the code editor, scroll down on the left sidebar until you see the folder named ***"Sections"***. Click the Sections folder and you will see a group of files display beneath the folder name. Depending on your store's theme you will need to find a specific file that may be unique to your theme. Generally the file you are looking for will be named **article-template.liquid**. Open this file by clicking the file name.

3. Remove the Recipe Kit code

Once the article-template.liquid file is open, you will see your screen fill with code. This is the core structure of your product page, so please be careful when modifying this code.

Look through the code until you find the following code:

{% render 'recipekit' %}

Remove this code by highlighting it and clicking the DELETE or BACKSPACE button on your keyboard.

Once complete, make sure you click “Save” in the top right corner of the page.

4. Remove the Recipe Kit config snippet

Now that you’ve removed the Recipe Kit code on your article page, you likely want to remove the relevant snippets from your store. They won’t be loaded, thus not affecting page speed or anything - but you may want to remove them nevertheless.

Under the Snippets folder in the Shopify code editor, scroll to the very bottom to find the Recipe Kit snippet:

  • recipekit.liquid

Open this file by clicking the file name.

Once the file opens up, in the top right corner you will see a “Delete” button.

Next, open the Assets folder, and look for the recipekit.scss.liquid file.

Delete this file as well.

Once complete the steps above, all relevant Recipe Kit snippets and code will have been removed from your store. We hope your Recipe Kit experience was fantastic, and please let us know if there is anything we could have done better.
