No preview above 1366

Post by hobo » Thu Mar 15, 2018 11:05 am

I started on a project with a default size of 1920 and a BP at 1366 this gives me a right and left scrollbar.
Question 1) can I just move the slider on bottom right to 75% and continue the project?

After adding some objects I tried the F5 preview and nothing happened browser does not open.

If I start a new project and use 1366 as my default and any BP below that it all previews without any problem.

I thought this may be a restriction on my Laptop, but the same happens on my desktop PC.
My desktop PC video display is set at a much higher setting and should be displaying this.

Does anyone have had this happen and like to share on how to remedy this?
Thanks

The size of the page does not have any effect on preview/publish. Unless there is something in your browser that prevents it from displaying.
Or maybe you have set the page to 'do not publish'?

By why are you designing adding such a large width? It will only be more work... It think 1280 as the widest view is more common.

I often create my default at 1920 and go down from there. I have a larger screen and many more people are starting to get bigger screens. There is a lot of abandoned real estate the larger you go if design too small to begin with in my opinion.

From the current statistics from W3Schools, this is the current breakdown for screen sizes:

1920x768 = 18%
1366x768 = 34%
1280x1024 = 4%
1280x800 = 3%
1024x768 = 2%

and there are 32.9% with other high resolutions ranging from 1360 up to 2560. So 1920 and above accounts for at least 22% of the screens sizes which is why I say it is beneficial to design at this size.

@Hobo, i dont think your computer has anything to do with it. There has to be something not right with the way it is set up. Feel free to send it to me and I would be happy to look at it.

Thanks for your replies, looks like when F5 is pushed the window that pops up is saying " generating index file" but it does not generate and browser does not open. So could be a browser or maybe my CPU or memory (8GB) not enough.
So what does the generating of the files depend on?
Thanks

Maybe you have set the page to 'do not publish'?
Or maybe you have set the page extension to something else than .html ?
Browsers can only preview HTML pages (no PHP, asp or other extensions)

Page extension is html and it is set to publish.
I tried a video capture here.

I do not think this has anything to do with WWB.
Maybe there is something wrong o the content of the page?
For example, maybe you have added Google ad-sense code which only works online?

Does it work with another browser?
