Webflow Read-Only View Not Working For Me

Hello everyone,

For the first time ever, read-only view is not working for me. I’ll show a screenshot of how the website is supposed to look and a screenshot of how it is looking for me. Please note that the problem is not going on in the normal designer view, but only in read-only mode.

It was working fine yesterday. I also checked on another read-only view website and same thing. Why?

Welcome to the community @hermeticdesigns!

Can you please share your read-only link here so I can take a peek at how it appears on my end?

Yes. It’s not my read-only link though. It’s the professor’s. I’m copying his site. But on my designer, it looks correct. I have no idea why it looks that way on his read-only link. I also checked and the bug repeats for other read-only links as well.

That is the link.

Someone else just told me this is also happening to them. No read-only links are working appropriately. How can we report this?

It’d recommend confirming the issue is still present when viewing the link in incognito with all browser extensions turned off to confirm there isn’t some sort of conflict causing the problem. It’s unlikely, but may help the support team rule out any issues :+1:
