Hi there

I have delved into search topics and previously answered questions in the community, however I can't find any information on how to delete items (in my case files) from the online store.

I am at present building 2 sites with online stores, although when I drag the online store widget over on my new site, all of the items from my first site are present and I can't fathom how to delete them.

Thanks in advance for any help offered,

Ste

Hello Stephen,

If you place your items in Categories then you don't need to delete the items. You have provision for 1000 products overall.

When you drag your Online Store widget onto your page you will see at the top left hand-side of that widget, a drop-down box. You select the Categories of items that you wish to display for this current page.

If you haven't added categories as yet then you can do this by clicking on the Edfit title of your Online Store>Manage Store ( at the bottom of that same popup)>Edit Categories> In the General tab, type in a category name. Then click on the Category Products tab next to the general tab.

>Add Products> Check the Filter boxes for products of this category.
When you have finished adding products of this Category then close the Add Products popup by clicking on the top right hand X

Click the Save button that appears on your page.

Now you can add further categories by clicking on the General tab and going through the process with a newly added Category.

If you want to delete Products, this will permanently remove the products and you won't b able to retrieve them again without adding them to the Catalog.
To delete the products you need to click on the button "Back to the beginning". At the bottom of the opening page you will see a red button "Edit/Add Products". click this> select any products you wish to permanently delete by checking the associated Filter box. this will then activate the Delete option in the upper series of buttons on that page. Click on that delete function to remove your marked products from your catalog.
