I have used the Vimeo social widget to add videos to my site. When I preview in a browser it works fine. When I upload the html to FTP for my live site a 404 page loads instead.
I asked my webhost to investigate why and they said the link to the vimeo in the code was missing the http: bit at the start, so this is what the code exported from Muse says:
but what it should say is:
Why has the http: been stripped from the code when published to html?
Could you please share the actual URL of your page so we can check the exact codes?
The strange thing is it's the same code which is exported to the FTP while in the preview.
Not sure how http:// got stripped from your site.
Any luck Ankush? Or anyone else have any ideas?
Hey, Can you please point me to the widget? where exactly have you placed it?
I see some lightbox triggers which opens up, is that what you are talking about?
There is meant to be a grid of about 15 lightbox triggers (images with rollovers that when clicked open the video and some other written content).
I can send you a screenshot of the local version of that would help?
Ok, I see that. However, this doesn't look like a native Muse Vimeo widget?
Is it a third party?
It is native. It's a lightbox composition inside which is a Vimeo social widget native from Muse.
the code used is Locutus not Muse... imo thats why it doesn't work
Thanks ussnorway. Can you explain what that means? Is it not native Muse? I'm not sure why it isn't.. maybe I need to build from scratch again (nightmare!) but it'd be good to know what Locutus is?
it'd be good to know what Locutus is?
I assume you grabbed this Muse-to-Wordpress template from some free download? anyway there is nothing wrong with Loctus (or Wordpress) as a code system for people that know their codes but it is different to Muse which is mostly Bootstrap based and I don't recommend it to non-coders unless you want to hire someone to do the work.
Yes it is Muse-to-Wordpress (MWuse) but that was so I could include a blog page, I didn't expect it to affect non-blog pages too. I will contact MWuse to take this further. Thanks everyone.
I wanted to send you some screenshots. The first is how it looks when previewed from Muse in a browser, with the Vimeo running fine.
The one below is when I export HTML and run on my local WAMP server. (I'm not expert, so maybe it's WAMP that's at fault here, but it might give you a clue as to why the live site also doesn't work):
Does this help?
