Sometimes we realize that what we want was something we saw earlier. Standard website navigation can make is hard to find those previous products. Our Recently Viewed Product Block puts the last 10 products viewed by the customer into rotation on the page of your choosing. Now customers won't miss out on items they previously considered.

From your store's Dashboard click the Site Designer icon in the left Navigation Menu.

The Recently Viewed Product Block can be added to any Page on your site. In this example, we will add it to the Product Detail Page. Using the Page: Home dropdown at the top of the Site Designer Page, choose Product Detail from the list.

On the Product Detail Page, mouse over the page until you see the Plus Sign icon to add a new block. Click the Plus Sign icon and locate the Product section of the Add A Block menu. Open the section and choose Recently Viewed Products, using the Add Block button.

Once your block has been added, hover over the new header section and locate the gray Edit button. Use the Edit button to open the Edit Block menu and customize it.

The Edit Block menu for the Recently Viewed Products offers these options:

Product Details Block Version

On the Edit Block Menu for the Recently Viewed Products Block, you may see the following warning message.

This message indicates that you must be using Version 2 (or newer) of the Product Details Block in order for the Recently Viewed Product Block to work correctly. To check your version, navigate to the Product Details page (if you are not already there) using the Page: Home dropdown menu at the top of the Site Designer page. Locate the Product Details Block (it should be directly below the Header Block on this page) and click the gray Edit button.

On the Edit Block Menu, locate the Settings Icon for the Block (Next to the Block Title). Click it to see the current version of the Block that your site is using. If you are not using Version 2 (or a newer version), click the newest version to update.
