How to Preview Content in Cosmic JS

Preview Cosmic JS Content in 3 Steps 

It's easy to set up Preview links on your Object Types to allow your writers to easily preview changes to content in draft or published state.  To add preview buttons to your Objects, simply go to the Object Type you want to Preview and click Settings > Preview Link.

Settings > Preview Link

Add your Preview Link (dynamically add the object slug with the [object_slug] shortcode).  If you would like to view Draft status Objects, you will need to make sure your web app queries the endpoint with ?status=all.  View the API documentation for more information on how to access your Objects in draft status.

Once your Preview Link is available, you can draft content and save it. Then Click the Preview button located at the top right in the Edit Object page.
