How to Test a Widget

William Harper Updated by William Harper

Widgets can be tested in two ways: using preview mode within the widget builder and displaying it on your site.

  1. Testing a widget in the widget builder:
    The Friendbuy widget builder has a preview mode to step through the user experience. To access this, navigate to the widget builder, then click preview. This will allow you to step through the widget experience as if you were a user on the site. Note that the preview function uses dummy data.
  2. Testing a widget on your site:
    The CSS on your site takes precedence over the CSS applied by Friendbuy. As a result, it is prudent to test a widget before showing it to your customers in production. We recommend adding the widget code to a hidden page, and testing there before adding the widget to the final pages.
