Case Scenario Critical Reader - Authoring - Preview and Publishing - Previewing Local Content Problems

Home > Authoring > Preview and Publishing > Previewing Local Content Problems

A blank page with just the header and footer when previewing a project in Chrome (and Internet Explorer 11) is a known issue for CSCR. These browsers block local content from being loaded onto the browser as a security measure. The latest version of the tool previews well with firefox and we recommend making it your default browser while you are working locally on a project. Once the project has been published and uploaded to a server, students will be able to preview it from any browser.

Technical Explanation: At this point, as long as we have xhr (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XMLHttpRequest) requests in the html, and script tags, IE and Chrome won't work for local preview. It works fine if its on a server but not locally.
