All day today (9/24), I've been editing a hub, and every time I click Preview I get a blank Preview box with no text or images. My hub is http://hubpages.com/hubtool/edit/3381417 . I use Firefox 15.0.1 on Windows XP.
next day, Tuesday 9/25, problem continues - no preview visible.
Sorry to hear about the issues you are experiencing.
The URL you provided is not an accessible one.
What is the title of the Hub in question?
Is this Hub the only one with the issue or are there others?
Does the problem persist if you use clear the browser cache?
What about if you use a different browser, like Google Chrome?
I went ahead and published that one hub, and that is why the link did not work.
I've tested it with several other of my unpublished hubs - the problem recurs any time I edit a hub and click preview.
Got to run to a meeting now; I'll check clearing my cache later and let you know.
It may be that this started with the upgrade to Firefox 15
The problem persists after I clear the browser cache.
I'm testing this on several unpublished hubs, and one unpublished one, as well. So far, the preview button always brings up a blank page. Here are some examples.
hub link: http://sidkemp.hubpages.com/hub/Project … Definition
click edit: http://hubpages.com/hubtool/edit/3347400
click preview - blank page
hub link: http://sidkemp.hubpages.com/hub/Root-Ca … ss-Success
click edit: http://hubpages.com/hubtool/edit/3374591
click preview - blank page
I tried it with a published hub, too:
http://sidkemp.hubpages.com/hub/Pieces- … ter-Hedges
click edit: http://hubpages.com/hubtool/edit/3381417
click preview - blank page
I don't have easy access to Google Chrome, and the glitch does not stop me from writing, and I must publish 7 more hubs by 9/30 for the Apprenticeship Program, so I may not do other tests soon. I'll ask my wife to test her hub editing and post here, so you get an alternate browser.
Again, my browser is 15.0.1, and the problem may have started with the upgrade to this version, and clearing the cache does not help.
My wife, HubPages User KrisL, tried to edit one of her hubs and got a similar problem, but this one included an error message.
She is using Internet Explorer 8, version 8.0.7600.16385
Hub: http://krisl.hubpages.come/hub/kigo-sea … s-in-haiku
click Edit: http://hubpages.com/hubtool/edit/3306336
When she was in Edit mode, she clicked Preview and got this text in the Preview screen:
[red button, white x}This content cannot be displayed in a frame
To help protect the security of information you enter into this website, the publisher of this content does not allow it to be displayed in a frame.
What you can try:
Open this content in a new window
When she clicks on "Open this content in a new window" the preview comes up correctly in a preview window.
Thanks so much for the useful details.
I'm going to try to get access to an XP machine and do some testing later so we can get this to engineering to be addressed.
I just tested IE9, Firefox 15.0.1, Chrome 21, and Opera 11 & 12.02 on two different Windows 7 machines (one 64 and one 32 bit) and as of yet have been unable to reproduce the problem you are experiencing.
I just tested Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 15.0.1 in XP and still am unable to reproduce the issue people are experiencing.
Only ideas I have now are limited system resources (RAM, CPU) or network issues as the preview loads for me, but sluggishly in certain browser/OS combinations (namely IE8 in XP).
Hi Matthew - you Magician!
I made no changes to my configuration between the preview function not working yesterday, and now. But now it works! The preview function just worked when I tested it today, even though you say you didn't do anything!
I'll keep you posted if more trouble arises, and ask KrisL to check it on her system, too.
I was having the same problem with a hub I was working on this morning. I was unable to preview it by clicking on the preview button while in edit mode.
Can you provide the operating system and web browser (including version) you are using?
What is the URL for the problematic Hub?
Does clearing your browser cache or using a different browser have any impact?
I'm having the same problem, using Opera. It's Hubpages, not the computer or browser. I guess they're overwhelmed today; apparently this is when the new profile rolls out to everyone who didn't already convert.

To the powers that be at HP: this is getting OLD. What's the point of a writing site that won't let you edit, let alone publish, your work????? Seems to happen only on the weekends, and I'm 100% sure it IS NOT on my end. No Windows updates pending, cache has been emptied, system...

I just want to make sure I am clear on the transition information. My stuff transferred overnight, so that means that I have 4 months to clear up skulls etc before the hubs get moderated, correct?I am going to have to completely revamp quite a few former lenses due to the fact that much of my...

I've been working on a new Hub on and off for the past several days, but haven't published it yet. When I go into the "My Account" menu it shows that this Hub has 23 views, which I found rather odd.How can an unpublished Hub have 23 views already? Is it counting the number of times I've...

At the beginning of February, I had my hub on the Chinese New year removed because, apparently, it had 'unrelated products.' As the only products were made of jade, and as jade is considered extremely lucky in the new year, and I had written about that, the action was either malicious or ignorant....

How do I delete an unpublished hub?
by Kelley Eidem 6 years ago
I really do need some help to remedy this.All that was done was to change the Kindle price of my book from $3.99 to $4.99. One digit and my page is DOWN.For that, the hub page - which has over 400,000 page views so far and sometimes gets several hundred visits a day - is now off line for probably...
