    Hi Tom,

    I notice that the “Preview Changes” in my wordpress doesn’t work anymore. I can only see the changes made to the page only after clicking the “Update” followed by the button “Preview Changes”.

    I wonder if you have come across this issue, and is able to advise on this.

    Thank you.

    I know that the current build of Sections does some weird things to the preview button, which is why I’m completely rebuilding it.

    If you disable the Sections add-on, does the issue go away?

    Hi Tom,

    I only use section on my main page at http://www.ioanything.com
    The rest of the webpage is not using the feature “section”.
    I am facing this issue for all the pages.
    Is this related to your observation?

    Thanks.

    When you disable the Sections add-on all together, does it still happen?

    Before I disable it…
    I need to ask.
    Will my page content and layout be gone?
    Can I retrieve it back later?

    It will be gone until you re-activate it.

    Once it’s reactivated, your content and layout will be back 🙂

    Of course, if you’re worried you should take a database backup (never a bad idea).

    same problem observed after I deactivate the “section”.

    Well, good to know it’s not Sections.

    Next up is testing your others plugin (#1 on this page: https://generatepress.com/knowledgebase/debugging/).

    Hi Tom,

    While doing troubleshooting for the “Preview Changes” problem,
    I attempt to deactivate a few of my plugin on the Generatepress theme, and realised all my other pages cannot be loaded up.
    Only the homepage is not affected.

    Then I activate back, expecting that it will revert back.
    But it never came back.

    Now all my pages cannot be loaded except for the home page.
    http://www.ioanything.com

    Would appreciate your help in this.

    All pages are loading for me except for Product, and that’s because you have a folder named product on your server.

    Hi Tom,

    The WordPress suppose to use the permalinks first.
    I think it go for the folder first then permalink.
    Because when the “product” folder is renamed, the page can load.
    It used to be permalink first, and folder is a 2nd priority.
    Is there any way to change the priority?

    It used to work properly, until I start to disable some plug-in when troubleshooting the “Preview Changes” issue.

    My other site “www.pic-control.com” is also a similar setup but is working fine.

    Now still facing the problem.
    Any idea how this can be resolved?
    Thank you.

    I don’t think there’s any way to change the priority.

    Pretty sure servers will always choose to navigate to the folder first, and then the WordPress link as it’s using mod_rewrite.

    You can check with your hosting company to see if they have any ideas, but I think you’ll have to change one of the names so they don’t conflict.

    But then how come it works for the past 2 months?
    Strange?
    It can recover when I enable one of the option in “all-in-one-wp-security” plug-in.
    It actually works, permalinks has a priority over the folders.

    There must be some setting in that plugin that does it.

    If you don’t want to use the plugin, ask your hosting – they might have a way to do it 🙂

    I have asked them, but they (site5) don’t have an idea.
    They also said the same thing.
