Hello Kenny,

The yola sitebuilder preview will display the Store as it will appear live. Additional items added to the inventory are automatically updated so you don't need to re-publish after each addition of product.

The Online Store in fact is a widget like any other in a sense. It is added to a page (or pages) and these pages can be linked as you would do with any standard Yola page within your site.

Hi
I think your misunderstanding the question, I know that the store is a widget but I don't seem to have any way of previewing it. It doesn't show in the pages of my site....I have no way of viewing it other than the control interface. I need to know where it is so that I can A. view it and B link it to other pages of my site.

Hello Kenny

Have you added your Yola Online Store to one of the pages of your website? The control panel allows you to manage your Online Store, but you will also need to drag and drop the Online Store Widget to a page. Once done, you will be able to preview your store by clicking on the "Preview" button in your Yola Sitebuilder. Adding the Online Store Widget to a particular page or to multiple pages of your site will also enable you to link from anywhere to those pages.

You can find the Online Store Widget under the "Widgets" tab in the "Popular" area. Please let us know if you have more questions.
