Hey,

Is it possible to create multiple instances if we want to test app configuration but not on the live enviroment.

If I create multiple themes I cant access and install apps on some of the themes without publishing it, am I correct?

i.e I want to add the elevar app or google channel but not on the live site, so I can play with it a little.

I think I have to build a test website

Thanks

I see that there are options for instances somehow, if someone can help me with that.

Hi @Avishai1

On each app, if that apps need to install on a live site/staging your theme, you can duplicate your theme. And install the app, when you install success the app, you can backup the old live site to the public live site so you can check the app on a new theme (installed the app)

Hope this information is helpful.

Sorry not sure I understand.

Lets say I install the elevar app.

Can I install it on only 1 theme which is not the live theme?

If so how do I access the settings for that app in this test theme?

When I publish the test theme does it overwrite the current theme or it will overwrite only if I am the owner?

Thanks
