Preview frontend product page from admin panel

Preview frontend product page from admin panel

As you know, Magento 2 default does not support the preview function to check display of frontend from admin panel, thus making the admin task much more time-consuming and inefficient since you will have to make changes, save all configuration, go to frontend and find the right page to see how the change applied to your site.


How about a striking approach that allows you to reduce the long process by half? Then Admin Product Preview Plus for Magento 2 is the extension that worth your consideration. It does not simply allow to check frontend while still working in backend for any page even customer login, but also offer the permission to edit page in backend while checking in frontend. Sound impossible? Anything is possible with this best preview extension for Magento 2. Please take a look at its outstanding features:


  • Preview product, category from backend

Link to Product Page, Category Page and CMS Page from backend. Admin can choose to preview product from Product Edit Page and Product Grid Page in catalog which shows preview button in New Column or Action Column.
