Wordpress Preview when in draft mode.

Last Update: July 16, 2017

Take when you are using Wordpress and looking at the preview when still in draft mode. For 2 days running I have had incorrect views shown.

This was using a table that I had created containing affiliate links to Amazon.co.uk; and Amazon.com.

When I previewed in draft mode the tables were simply all over the place. I spent an hour trying to work it out. In fact there was nothing wrong. When I published it, accidentally, I saw that the tables and links were perfect.

P.S. I never got pretty link to work with the amazon links.

Thought I would post this and hopefully save some people wasted time. My suggestion is that if you have potential problems you can't fix you copy a page to a test website and publish what you have to see if it is working.

I am using Wordpress 4.8–en_GB which is the latest version at the time of this post.

FYI Amazon produces their own pretty link. When you search product link and see "get link" click on the down arrow beside it you will get the full link and a shortened link.

I have run into the same problems myself. It can be a little tricky at times.

It can be very frustrating but I always manage to get everything looking the way that I want it.
