When I go into preview mode to look at my pictures in a larger size, there is no back button allowing me to look at another photo without exiting preview mode. Is there a way to look at all of my photos(in the larger size) without exiting preview mode?

Hi Doug W,

I think I can help but I need some additional information. Can you please reply with your site address and let me know what widget you're using that is causing the preview problems?

Laura, Sorry for the lack of info. This could be because we are still in the process of building the site, and it isn't published yet, but when we are on the page we created for our thumbnail photos, then go into preview to see them larger, they are there and working, but to go from one photo to the next you have to get out of preview each time. Is that the way the software is designed? Thanks Doug

Hi Doug,

Thanks for the additional information. If you click on an image in preview mode, the new page should open. As long as you have a navigation menu on your site, you should be able to choose which page you would like to go back to, without exiting the 'preview' mode.

If you do not have a navigation menu on your site, or on these pages, you can certainly add a 'previous' or 'back' link by creating a standard text link.

Keep in mind that even though you are simply previewing this, it would be best to add a way to navigate to the previous page, as what you are seeing is what your site visitors see when you publish your site!

Not a problem! It sounds like you are using the Flickr Gallery widget, in which case, yes, it is working as designed. You may want to consider a slide show as an alternative if you wish for your pictures to scroll through without having to exit out of the preview.
