Store views

Store views are typically used to make the store available in different locales. Shoppers can use the language chooser in the header of the store to change the store view.

Scope - multiple store views

Add a store view

  1. On the Admin sidebar, go to Stores > Settings > All Stores.

    All Stores {width="700" modal="regular"}

  2. Click  Create Store View.

    Create store view {width="600" modal="regular"}

  3. Set Store to the parent store of this view.

  4. Enter a Name for this store view.

    The name appears in the language chooser in the store header. For example: Spanish.

  5. For Code, enter the code that identifies the view (in lowercase characters).

    For example: spanish.

  6. To activate the view, set Status to Enabled.

  7. (Optional) Enter a Sort Order number to determine the sequence in which this view is listed with other views.

  8. Click Save Store View.

Edit a store view

Because the view name appears in the language chooser, you might eventually want to change the name of the default view to something more descriptive. The Name field is simply a label and can be easily changed.

If your Adobe Commerce or Magento Open Source installation has a multisite or multi-store setup, do not change the store Code field without verifying that the value is not referenced in the index.php file. If you do not have access to the server to examine the file, ask a developer for help.
