Privately testing a new template

Allowing an admin test a new template on a live site

It is possible for an admin user to privately test a new template while other users see the regular template. Use these steps:

  • Determine your IP Address
  • Go to the screen Admin > Configuration > Website Maintenance, and enter your IP Address in the Down For Maintenance (exclude this IP-Address) field.
  • Visit the storefront and append t=YOURNEWTEMPLATE to the URL. You will now be locally switched to the new template.
  • When you’re finished testing, append t=off to the URL.
