I'm using Adobe Dreamweaver 19.2.1

 

I'm working on a website that that uses SSIs to call on headers and footers. Everything displays fine on the test server, but they don't appear in Split view or Live View. Is there a way for me to preview it as it would look on the test server? The site was designed this way (not by me) so I cannot get rid of the SSI.

 

They are

<!--#include virtual="/include/css-header.html" -->

<!--#include virtual="/include/header.html" -->

 

<!--#include virtual="/include/footer.html" -->
<!--#include virtual="/include/css-footer.html" -->

Do you have a local testing server installed on your computer to parse includes?

 

Your Document Toolbar should be in Live View, not Design.

 

Go to Edit > Preferences > Invisible Elements.

Server-Side Includes:  ☒ Show contents of included file.
