    Preview in browser, cant see anything!

    jdldn Level 1
      Im experimenting with making a site with buttons but when I preview in my browser the page is blank. If I look at the code then I can see some tables and stuff created but nothing that shows up in the normal view.

      When I do image preview everything is there so I cant figure out why this is happening.
      thanks

          Did you export HTML and images? Does your code reference your images? Can you see your images in your folder?

            Do I have to export my HTML and images?

            I just went File/ Preview in Browser. This is similar to what i do periodically when im making something in dreamweaver.

            The only thing in the page seems to be a table and some code which i think is java script from my buttons.

            When i use the preview view option in fireworks everything looks as it should.

              No, you don't need to Export in order to File > Preview in Browser.

              It should be working. What do you have set as your Primary Browser?

              Double check the Pages Panel, and ensure you are on the right page. Example if you have a Master Page with few elements, and that is the active Page, then you may be not seeing all the elements on the subsequent pages. (just a guess on that one, as it has happened to me on occasion)

                It seems to be working in Safari now.
                Ive cleared the cache from firefox but still no luck. Oh well, ill just use safari then. thanks

                  Just so you'll know, you shouldn't use a graphics app to write the HTML for
                  a production-level site. It's OK for prototyping, but not for a real
                  website.

                    Yeah, im hoping that I can upload a rough version for clients to have a look at before I import it into dreamweaver.

                    Can you upload sites straight from fireworks with the interactivity of image rollovers, links, etc?

                      Certainly. You just need to upload all of the required dependent files.
