Preview Updates Before Launch
Streamline the development process by giving yourself the ability to preview alternative themes against your website’s real store data. Whether you’re previewing a design improvement, new custom functionality, a feature adjustment, or any minor changes you may make to your theme, ThemeBridge™ gives you the confidence of knowing that your updates will “play nice” with your live website and not cause unforeseen issues, typically found when using a standard sandbox environment.
Features & Benefits
Mitigate the risk of site issues
Protect your brand and mitigate the inherent risks of making updates to your live website by implementing a true staging environment.
Preview Themes against live store data
With ThemeBridge™ there is no longer a need to implement mock stores and products, also known as a sandbox. The core feature of ThemeBridge™ is the Theme Preview. This allows you to browse all of the available themes in your BigCommerce store, and see what those themes would look like against real store data.
Save Time & Expense
Having your live data at your fingertips will allow you to see how your store will look in real-time. ThemeBridge™ replaces the immense amount of time needed to manage a sandbox store with duplicate products and categories. Being able to debug against a preview with identical configuration to the live store will expedite the development and testing processes, saving you significant time and expense.
Seamless Team Collaboration
ThemeBridge™ allows you to choose your own subdomain on which to preview your themes. This subdomain will be live and available to anyone with the link – though not searchable by search engines. Using this browser-based system allows for greater collaboration and expedited feedback on the changes you’ve made. Easily share your custom ThemeBridge™ URL with decision makers and your Quality Assurance team.
Schedule Theme Launches
In addition to previewing a theme, you can also schedule your targeted theme to go live at a specific time and date. This can be perfect for multi-team development, seasonal updates to designs or theme content, specific promotions, or launch of new site features.
