Shopify - What is the private mode?

In this article, you will see how to use the private mode - A feature letting you disable the translation access for your visitors during your editions.


When you add the Weglot plugin you're in default "public mode". All your visitors can access to translated pages.
Using the private mode, you'll be able to edit your translations and see how it looks on your website. Your visitors won't be able to see translated pages until you reactivate public mode.

How to switch to private mode? 

Go to Shopify Admin > Apps > Weglot Translate.
On the left menu, you should see a button Make Private, click on it.

Now you're are in Private mode and translations are only visible because you're logged in as an administrator. Actually, the language button is still visible for you but not for your visitors.

Tips: Open a private session and check your website... There is no button!


How to switch to public mode? 

Clicking on "Make public", your visitors will be able to display your button again!
