Magento 2. What is the Single-Store Mode?

➤ In this article you can find out in which cases you can use the Single-Store Mode & how it works.

When you need Single-Store Mode?

You can enable the Single-Store Mode, in case you have one Website with one Store and Store View and you do not plan to use multiple stores in your Magento installation.

This will remove the configuration scope choices, and prevent you from making different configurations at the Website or Store View levels.

When selected (and saved), the Configuration Scope menu at the top-left of your screen will be removed, as will the scope labels beside each configuration field.

[notice type=”warning”]Once you add additional Website, Store or you simply add Store View to the existing store, the Configuration Scope menu at the top-left of your screen will be available again.

How to set single store mode?

1. On the Admin sidebar, tap Stores. Then under Settings, choose Configuration.

6. Refresh the cache, do the following:

  • Tap the Cache Management link in the system message at the top of the page.
  • Mark the Page Cache checkbox.
  • With Actions set to “Refresh,” tap  Submit .
Even if you plan to possibly use multiple stores later on, enabling the single-store mode can, for now, help you to avoid any confusion when configuring your stores. Unless you’re intent on immediately configuring multiple Websites or Stores, we recommend using this feature to reduce backend complexity.
