Design View no longer displays properly

Apr 28, 2013 3:03 AM


My website has worked fine for years, however I placed a script in the template from facebook, Since then I can no longer edit my site from design view, it does not display correctly, although it works fine in a browser or in live view.

I have removed the code that i put in but it still does not display correctly.

Any advice will be much appreciated, the site is here


Many thanks

    Hi Andy,


    If your site is looking good in Live view and in a browser, you are doing good. The Design view does not give the exact experience on a browser.

    Your code has a significant number of errors.  You might want to address these in your Template first.  Save & populate to child pages.  Then also validate code in your child pages.


    This Facebook <noscript> tag does not belong inside your <head> tag.  It must be moved to the <body> tag.  Unless I'm missing something, I don't know why you need it since it's styled to display:none.


    <noscript><img height="1" width="1" alt="" style="display:none" src="" /></noscript>


    As Preran said, Design View is not a web browser.  At best, it's an approximation of what you can expect to see in some lesser browsers.  Code errors can negatively impact rendering in Design View.  If you endeavor to use clean code wherever possible, you'll have fewer problems.
