Here's URL to my shop:

Is there any way to stop the Ecwid product browser reloading when I click a sidebar category link when on storefront page; I thought there might be as Ecwid product browser has already loaded so why should it need to reload?

Hello Richard,

This is Una from Ecwid Support. Thank you for reaching out to us. I’m sorry for the delayed reply!

When you click one of the custom menu items to which you assigned category links, a whole webpage reloads. And this is the default behavior, we can’t change it as these menu items are the elements of your website, not Ecwid.

In Ecwid, we use a special method that prevents a storefront from reloading when you navigate between different products and categories in the Product Browser. The method is called History.pushState(), please find a method description and more technical details here:

Please let us know if you have any further questions. We will be happy to answer and help.

Best regards,
Una Q.
