Note: Dawn theme has a lot of edits, some old version of Dawn they call the product using "product_card", the latest version, which I use in this tutorial, uses "card_product."

Depending on your Dawn version, you have to change the some of the code in Step 6. To see if you have product_card or card_product, you can check it on the card_product.liquid. See image below. 

If you do not have card_product, you can change the code by simply have to click Ctrl + F, and find "card_product", and change it to product_card. 

card_product or product_card
