Want to preview how Junip will display before turning it live?

Just head to On-site & Preview will be the second section. If you click Preview Junip you'll be taken to a new tab with Junip sample data loaded.

Note: you can use the dropdown arrow if you want to select a specific theme to preview (ie. you want to preview a draft theme and not your live theme).

Highlighting the "Preview" section of the "On-site settings" page in Junip's admin where you can click the button to preview Junip on your site.

What's actually happening when you click that link?

We're appending your url with the string ?junip-preview-mode=true&junip-break-cache=true .

You can manually trigger preview mode yourself, on any page of your website, by adding that string to the end of whatever url you're on.

Browsing in Preview Mode

You'll then see your site in preview mode, it'll be clear because of the green bar at the bottom of the screen and all of your products will have 3 sample reviews.

Exiting Preview Mode

How to exit this view will depend on where you're browsing it from:

To exit preview mode, you can click "Learn more" on the green bar and then Exit preview mode on the modal that pops up.

In the theme customizer

If you're in editing your 2.0 theme using the theme customizer, preview mode will automatically show there. If you want to hide this, then you can go to your App Embed menu, click on the dropdown arrow beside Junip and de-select the Show Preview Data checkbox.

Sample data being used

It's important to note, the sample data is not dynamic. Meaning that whether or not you have certain parts of the display enabled (like product traits, for instance), there will always be a sample trait in your sample data. Previewing is just meant to give you a general overview for positioning on the page & general branding.
