Theme Live Preview Does Not Work (3 posts)

    I've been plagued with a longstanding issue with my WordPress installation, which mgith have gone as far back as the higher versions of 2.x. That problem is that live theme preview has stopped working.

    I just updated to version 3.8. I'm able to see the available themes, and I'm able to click on the image to get more details. But when I click on the Live Preview button, after about a minute, while the left sidebar appears okay, the right side gives me a "session timeout" message, followed by the fields asking for my WordPress credentials. Once I add them in and click the button to log in, after a few seconds, the same window reappears.

    I'm stumped as to what's causing this issue. I think I might have gotten rid of all of the unnecessary plugins when I upgraded my site a few weeks ago, but otherwise I'm not sure how to fix this problem.

    Any guidance on how to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks much!

    Do you have this problem using a default theme with ALL plugins deactivated?

    Good point. I will try it within the next few weeks, as some of the plugins are big deals to turn off (especially PowerPress, which I use for my podcasts).

    Thanks for the suggestion; I will post an update on this.
