I made this 22-minutes long video in order to demonstrate how one can create a preview
environment by creating a new publishing target on an example of vanilla
Adding new publishing target is very helpful when you:
- would allow content authors to demonstrate the content being not
in a final state
- want to demonstrate that content to an audience without access to
your Sitecore instance
This demo shows how to create a publishing target database, assign it to
a designated hostname and then also to create an index for a given
preview database. It also demonstrates the difference between publishing
content in non-final-state into both live and preview databases.
Hope it helps!
