Local preview ok but not on the web server

Post by crybbio » Tue Aug 29, 2017 10:35 pm

Hi. I'm going crazy... I got a template and I've adapted it for my web site. When I see the preview everything is ok, no problems, but when I publish it on the web server, nothing works, just the home page that is loaded, however, very slowly. Anyone can help me? Thanks a lot in advance

Including a link to your site would be helpful so we can see what you've done.

All the links to the other pages don't work. Obviously I have checked the correctness of the links more than once

When I move my mouse over a link, the "***. html" extension does not appear, but only the name of the page

Maybe you have enabled the following.
Tools->Options->Publish & Preview->Hide file extension

Be sure to read the help before enabling this option!

I agree with BaconFries, check to see if that option is checked.

As for slow loading, have you optimized all of your images?

For example, image #173 in your carousel is huge at 3mb! First, you don't need the image to be 3280px wide. I would cut it down to at least 1920px wide. This alone would cut the size down to 1/3. Then if you optimize it (see www.tinyjpg.com) you would cut it down to 211kb.

You need to optimize all of your images.

I didn't modify any option: it was enable by default, in my case...

Now I'm going to do my job. Thanks!

Re: Suddenly local preview ok but not on the web server

I finished building my website over 8 months ago and published the entire site and everything has been working perfectly and all the content is displayed as it should.
A week ago I decided to add more pictures (jpg) to the existing "Photo Gallery" using the same option of "Light Box" and "Pretty photo"
They all showed on the WYSIWYG builder and on preview they expanded to the large version of the picture.
I then published the whole site again and discovered that all the new pics appear in their thumb nail version and when I click to enlarge nothing happens for a few seconds and I then get "Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and image exist". I have checked all that and everything seems to be in order.
The pics loaded before the last batch are working perfectly as they were before and I have spent hours trying to find out why the new additions do not enlarge.
ANY ONE HAVE ANY IDEAS???????

Did you upload all files?
Did you you use valid (web safe) file names?

Thank you for getting back to me. I am very, very frustrated.
Upload - do you mean publish? If so I have tried complete web site and individual pages. I have not done anything different to what I have done in the past when the results were fine.

Yes, there could be many reasons why have you published to the correct folder? Do the images have valid naming? Have you used all your allocated space on the server? To be able to help please provide a working URL so that we can view and try to provide you with a answer. Note if you have successfully uploaded/published in the past then it is usually a server issue and you should contact them and ask if any changes have been made.

As previously mentioned by Pablo
Did you you use valid (web safe) file names?

Please carefully read the following as many many of your images have invalid naming and this can give you Issues like you are having.
How do I name my pages, images and other files?

The file names of the images are incorrect.
