How To Enable Or Disable The Demo Store Notice In Magento

Approx. read time : 2 min

It is possible to configure Magento to display a notice when your store is operating in a demo mode in order to let your customers know that if they place any order it will not be processed. When your website is ready to ‘go live’ all you have to do is remove the demo store message.

For enabling or disabling the demo store notice you have to login to your Magento admin area and follow the steps mentioned below:

For Magento 1.9x or older:

  • Go to the ‘System’ tab
  • Select ‘Configuration’
  • Select ‘Design’ section
  • Click on ‘HTML Head’
  • A Yes/No drop down menu will be displayed for ‘Display Demo Store Notice’
  • Enable or disable the notice according to your preference
  • Click on ‘Save config’ to save the change

For Magento 2.x and newer:

  • Go to the ‘Content’ section
  • Under the ‘Design’ option, click on ‘Configuration’
  • Select the store view that you want to configure and click on ‘Edit’
  • Under the option ‘Other Settings’, expand the ‘HTML Head’ option
  • At the bottom of the page you can configure the option ‘Display Demo Store Notice’ according to your preference (Yes/No)
  • Click on ‘Save Configuration’ to save the change
