Preview not working

Hello,

I'm trying to preview a page I've created using Muffin Builder but it's not working, i.e. I see the page content without the latest changes.

I'm referring to dev2020.smartsystems.gr

  • Hi there,

    Preview option was very useful, especially when updating an already published page.

    I wonder why you chose to disable this very useful functionality.

    I used it many times in past websites I made.

    :(

  • Preview was active on BeTheme version 20.9.5.6

    This hardly one the early versions.

    It's only one major version back!

  • Hi again,

    If you look at the urls of the images, you will see that in the preview page, a preview url is shown:

    <asitename>/?page_id=<anumber>&preview=true

    I DID NOT UPDATE THE PAGE.

    The page was previewed BEFORE updating!

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to point out that there is a DIFFERENT functionality between betheme versions 20.9.5.6 and 21.5.3.

    Preview is not working any more on 21.5.3 but IS WORKING on 20.9.5.6.

    I think I have presented my case in a satisfying way.

    You keep saying "it will display the same, old page".

    Well, it doesn't display the same old page!

    As you can see in the images I've forwarded to you, it displays a PREVIEW of the page.

    Right after I make changes in the muffin builder, I press PREVIEW and it shows the page along with the changes I made.

    This doesn't happen in 21.5.3, just one major version back.

    Regards

  • Hi Bryan,

    Since the beginning of this discussion, whenever I mentioned "preview" I was referring to wordpress editor preview button.

    I never mentioned about any betheme supplied special kind of "preview" button.

    In betheme version on 20.9.5.6, when I edit a page and make changes with muffin builder, I can preview them by pressing this default preview button.

    This doesn't work on betheme version 21.5.3.

    I hope it's clear now!

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    I most certainly agree with you, when you say that BeTheme does not have any preview button.

    I'm not talking about any special BeTheme preview button.

    But yes, default preview from the wordpress was indeed working one major release back 20.9.5.6.

    It's not working now in release  21.5.3.

    Regards

  • Well, maybe you need to ask someone else who is sure about this functionality.

    Regards

  • I'd like to point out again, that I'm not referring to preview as a functionality of betheme.

    I'm referring to preview as a default functionality of wordpress.
  • Please sign in to see answear!
  • But as I have repeatedly mentioned previously, I do "append content from Muffin Builder" and it works.

  • Hello again,

    What I had in wordpress with betheme version 20.9.5.6 installed:
    • Edited page and added / changed  content using muffin builder.
    • Pressed wordpress default preview button.
    • Saw a preview of the page, displaying the added / changed  content (without hitting the update button).
    What I have in wordpress with betheme version  21.5.3 installed:
    • Edited page and added / changed  content using muffin builder.
    • Pressed wordpress default preview button.
    • Did not see a preview of the page, displaying the added / changed  content (without hitting the update button).
    Regards

  • Hi,

    In this Muffin Group instructional video "How to use widgets and the widgets section" published on youtube on Mar 14, 2017, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pa0eP-fKX24 at 0:57 - 0:58 the instructor presses preview and it works.

    He enables the left sidebar and previews without hitting the update / publish button.

    So back in mid 2017 preview was supported and working.

    Regards

  • OK I get it.

    So the answer to my original question is:

    In order for Preview to work and show muffin builder changes, I need to switch the page to draft mode. When I'm satisfied with the changes, I hit again the publish button.

    I tested it and it works.

    Thanks for your support.

    Best regards
