Publish Content

Publishing pages is an essential step in making your content visible to customers on your live storefront.

When you publish a page, you are essentially pushing all the changes and updates you've made to the page in the Customizer live for your customers to see.

Upon clicking Publish, a new deploy begins, which updates your storefront with the latest change. The time taken for this content to be visible will vary based on your caching settings.

Publishing Pages

To make a page available on your live storefront:

  1. Access the Customizer.
  2. Select the page you wish to publish.
  3. Click the Publish button located in the upper right corner of the Customizer, next to the Preview button.

Alternatively, you can publish a page from Pack’s admin > Pages > three dots menu for the selected page > Publish.

The storefront will rebuild to incorporate the latest changes on that page.

Unpublishing Pages

To remove a page from your live storefront, you can follow the same steps as above, but instead of clicking Publish, click Unpublish.

The storefront will rebuild, and the page will no longer be live (regardless of whether auto-publish is enabled).

Product status in Shopify vs. Pack

Pack synchronizes with Shopify to ensure that all products, whether in draft or published status, are reflected within Pack. However, it is important to note that deleted or archived products will not appear in the Pack Admin -> Products section.

For a product to be accessible within the Pack Customizer, it must meet the following requirements:

  • The product must be set to available (i.e., not in draft status) within Shopify.
  • It must be added to both the Online Store sales channel and the Pack Sales channel in Shopify.

Understanding the Draft Status in Pack vs. Shopify:

  • Draft in Shopify: If a product is in draft status in Shopify, it means the product is not yet ready for purchase and will not be acessible within the Pack Customizer.
  • Draft in Pack: A product that is not in draft status in Shopify but is marked as draft in Pack will be accessible within the Pack Customizer for editing, however it will not be visible to customers on the live storefront.

In order to make a product visible on the live storefront, you must publish the product in both Shopify and Pack.
