I fail to see that an issue dating back eight years ago could be troubling you now. Please start a new discussiom and describe the problem that you have created for yourself.

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.

So that we may better assist you, please answer the following questions:

  • Which version of DW?
  • Which operating system?
  • Are you working within a defined local site folder that resides on your primary hard drive? 
  • Does your CSS file reside in your local site folder?
  • Are you working with valid HTML & CSS code?
  • Can you show us the code you're working with?

Everything was working great until in updated to Dreamweaver 21.1, since then I've not been able to get a live view that works.

 

I tried going back to the last 20.x but somehow saw the exact same results, which made no sense to me.

 

Windows 10 version 21H1

Did you restart your computer after updating to DW 21?

Did you Restore Preferences?

 

Can you copy & paste this code into a new, blank document to see if it displays on your system?

Today I uninstalled Dreamweaver 2021 and 2020 leaving no Dreamweaver installed. I then re-installed Dreamweaver 2021  (21.1)

I directed the install to delete preferences.

Following that I did not restart

 

Your sample html file displays just fine.

After replacing spaces with "_," Live view came to Life!

 

Thanks for your assistance.

One thing I forgot to mention - Before I applied the fix to the image src reference, the only thing the "Live" displayed correctly was the image itself. Go figure.

Not too surprising given that "Utah Weekly 7-day Moving Average 07-04-2021.jpg" is an invalid file name in HTML5.  No spaces or special characters (%$#*&) are allowed in file names on the web.

So my problem came down to the fact that I had an <img src="String with Spaces" ....> This error caused the live view to quit working. The strange part was that the only part of live view that did work was the image. It was nicely displayed, but the rest of live view was not displayed correctly or not at all.

Fixing the broken <img src="String with Spaces"..> returned Live view to work properly. 

It would have been nice if Dreamweaver had generated an error calling my attention to the problem.  It flags many other errors, why not this one.

There are some things that code linting alone does not pick up. The Output panel does not report spaces as a problem, maybe because it's not a problem for all document types.

 

In any case, it's good practice to run code Validation frequently and especially when rendering is not as expected.

Window > Results > Validation > check current document.

Are you saying it is too complex for computer code to read the document type and then process document A differently from document B?

3rd party Linters probably don't make such distinctions, it's all or nothing.  But feel free to submit a feature request to Adobe UserVoice where the product developers will see it.
