If you decide to change your Shopify store's theme, you may find that our recommendation boxes may not appear immediately – we have a quick fix! This issue is caused by our database not being in sync with your store’s latest data* and can be fixed with a Manual Sync.
Follow these instructions to perform a Manual Sync:
- On the left panel of your LimeSpot Personalizer Admin Panel, click Settings > Manual Sync
- Click Initiate Sync. You will now see a 'Job Progress' page, giving you updates on the status of your product sync.
NOTE: If you have many products, this may take a few minutes to complete. You will see a notification on the top right corner of your admin panel once the sync is finished.
- Refresh website in browser. All LimeSpot Persoanlizer features should be synced and showing on your live store.
Upon changing themes, all previous customizations will no longer appear in our recommendation boxes. You can preview what the automatic customizations will look like for different themes by going to the Personalizer > Set up > Customize > Box Designer > Global Settings and choosing your theme from the e-commerce section.
NOTE: Once you click Sync Products, the sync has begun on our end even if your Job progress window remains blank. There's no need to click Sync Products again—it's in our system and will complete.
* Shopify sends LimeSpot updates on stores’ data 5-6 times a day. The time gaps between these webhook updates cause the issues with image loads. A Manual Sync is a manual request for Shopify to immediately sync LimeSpot’s database with your store’s most recent data.
