How does Limio publishing work?
Every time you save a campaign, Limio automatically builds a 'Preview' of the shop. The preview is made available on your Limio or custom domain URL, appending /__next/tag to the URL. For example, a Christmas campaign with the tag '/christmas' will have a preview available at https://sandbox-shop.dev.limio.com/__next/christmas
Preview is particularly useful to see your page in real conditions, but also to enable you to take test orders, so you can easily test end-to-end your page, checkout and order completion. Once something is available as a Preview, it can be published, i.e. made available at the final URL https://sandbox-shop.dev.limio.com/christmas and connected to live payments.
How does preview and publish work?
Build, Preview, and Publish are available through the 'Builds' button in the upper-right corner.
1. Builds: Once you save a campaign, a 'Build' is kicked-off. A build will create the preview, which is a fully functional test shop. This can take a few minutes and you will see it as 'in-progress' while this is done.
2. Preview: Once a Build is successful, the page is available on 'Preview'. You can click on the 'Go to Preview' link, which will automatically route you to https://sandbox-shop.dev.limio.com/__next/christmas
3. Publish: If you are happy with the Preview, then you can click the 'Publish' button. Please note that you must preview the campaign for the Publish button to be clickable. This will automatically and within a few seconds, change the routing of the page to the URL https://sandbox-shop.dev.limio.com/christmas and activate live orders.
Once published, can I make further edits?
Of course! Just edit your offers or campaign and save. This will automatically kick-off a new build, and the preview will be available once successful.
Can I see my campaign instantly?
Shop build take a bit of time because it creates a fully functional shop with a checkout. If you'd like to see your page instantly without the checkout, for example to check the look and feel across devices, just click on 'Quick Preview' on the campaign. You will see your page full-screen with mobile, tablet and desktop option.
