    • Do your images load properly?
    • Do your sliders work?
    • Does your add to cart work properly?

  5. Publish Your Optimizations – Once you’re happy with your preview, select Publish to make your changes live! Don’t worry, if you ever need to go back to the old theme, we’ve already backed it up. From the app, you can select the Revert button from the top bar.

Step 3: Do your happy dance – your site is optimized!

From now on, we’ll be watching for new changes and updating your site automatically to make sure it’s always optimized.

If you ever need to uninstall, make sure to revert your theme first to prevent unintended errors.

If you chose to enable App Caching, keep in mind we update your cache every 10 minutes automatically. If you install a new app that changes your storefront and it isn’t doing anything, just wait a couple minutes or head to Hyperspeed and select Refresh App Cache from the top bar.
