New preview options for mobile devices

 March 21, 2017
by Flavio Mester

In addition to the green Preview website button – which loads the current page into a separate tab on your computer, including unpublished changes – and the blue button that loads the live website, we now have two additional buttons for websites created with our latest framework – one for tablets, the other for mobile – that will popup the current page into a lightbox window.

Preview buttons

The tablet button will simulate the width of an iPad in a portrait/vertical position, whereas the mobile will do the same for a regular sized iPhone. This way it’ll be easier for clients to check how their content looks on different devices.

NOTE: this change in the YWD back-end may require you to clear your browser’s cache in order to get the toolbar to appear properly. Contact us if you need help with that.
