What Is A Store View In Magento 2?
In Magento Community Edition 2.0, the store views are created with the aim of providing different versions of the store in several languages. Owing to that, the buyers are allowed to select their language in the store header and change to the correlative store view. Before we start, let’s figure out how your store hierarchy would be (how many store views that you want to build). Moreover, since all of the stores will include separate root categories, it’s possible to have an absolutely different set of main menu options for each of them.
How To Create A New Store View In Magento 2?
