If I sent you a zipped folder of the site would you be able to have see more?
I will need a copy of the project file.

I'm sorry, but I cannot access your website. It is blocked by my firewall with a malware warning.
Can you please upload the file to a different server?

Hi Pablo,

Sorry for the delay, I don't seem to be able to get a link working from a new server.

Put your project file up on a free file sharing site like We Transfer or similar. Works great and you can take it down when you want to stop access to it.
As for Pablo's firewall blocking your site - dump the counter if it is a 'free' web hosted version - those are laced with links and junk.

Are your WWB versions all the same on the other computers? Are all extensions used on all computers? Can you preview any single page successfully or are all of them not working?

Thanks for the suggestions I will give We Transfer a try

The site previews OK on another laptop, with the counter.
All extensions are used on both laptops
The preview doesn't work on all pages
Just checked the WWB versions,
I have version 14.3.2 (Feb 14 2019) on the computer that the preview works OK and I have version 14.3.4 (May 2 2019) on the computer that doesn't preview.
Could there be a problem with version 14.3.4 ??

No, I think it is related to either your settings or browser.

I am using Chrome and have just reset the settings to original defaults.
Still not previewing

I can preview the pages without any problems on my computer.

Note that I had to change the preview folder in Tools->Options->Files & Folder because it was configured to a OneDrive shortcut.
So maybe this shortcut also does not exist on your computer?

Also, there are several references to third party scripts (like Google Maps, Stat-counter) so these may be blocked by your firewall.
Anyway, I can ensure you that the problem in not in WWB.

OK, Problem solved. I got there in the end with your help.

I changed the preview folder that goes to one drive shortcut to the Le Duc website and it previews perfectly.
Thank you all for your patience and help.

Regards
Tony
