Im seeing a 404 page not found error when the shutter is closed
When closed the shutter redirects users to a page of your choosing if they try to access a page on your site that matches the keywords. You might get a 404 if you havent selected a page to redirect you visitors to. This can be done by going into your shopify admin,
selecting apps -> Store Shutter -> Configure Shutter
Then choosing a page from the drop down list. Please note the drop down only show pages that have been published, (are marked as visible). If the drop down is empty you may need to create a page, or change the visibility of any pages you have created to visible, then go back into the shutter application. The docs desribes how to set this up in more detail.
The shutter says closed, but the pages are still accessible?
Check your settings, the shutter will only close pages that have one of the keywords in their URL. Typically you would add the keywords ‘collections’, ‘product’ and ‘cart’. But you can use any keywords you like to shutter individual products or specific custom pages.
Can I automate opening / closing of the shutter?
Currently you have to open and close the shutter manually, but we are working on a scheduling feature for our next update to let the shutter be open and closed automatically
