      Hello Karan,

      What you mentioned is a generic error. Without details it is not possible to help you but check if you have the named section available within your Shopify.

      Hello Priya,

      Whatever the changes you have made, you want to save those changes locally on your computer and discard all the changes in Shopify. Clear all sessions, cookies and close browser. Login to Shopify, make those changes again and try to save it.

    Thank you for your help. I kept staring at my code trying to see the problem. I even reverted and still, nothing worked. Sure enough, just closing the window and reopening it did the trick.
    Thanks much!
