How to Enable/Disable Flo-Launch Test Mode
Enable Flo-Launch Test Mode
Once Flo-Launch plugin has been installed and activated, you can start using it by enabling Test Mode.
Before you activate the Test Mode be sure to create a Data Base Backup. This will ensure your current version is available in case something goes wrong.
Please keep in mind that enabling Test Mode for the first time may take a while as the system needs to create a temporary database.
Once you have successfully activated Test Mode, your page will refresh and you will see a note in the top right corner indicating you are currently in Test Mode.
While the Test Mode is activated, at the top of your website back-end you will see a note saying “you are currently in Test Mode.” This message will show up in every new page you open within the back-end.

When checking your website in the front-end, there will be a message for 3 seconds in the top right corner reminding you that the website is in Test Mode.
