Previewing Pages

A general rule of thumb for web page designers is to always test the web page before publishing. Testing a web page means viewing it as it will be seen in a browser. Contribute provides a one-touch method of testing your current page: Press F12, and the page is immediately previewed in your regular browser. Choosing File > Preview in Browser has the same effect.

The first time you preview a page, Contribute informs you that the draft will be stored in a temporary folder on your site. This is done to make sure that your page takes advantage of any necessary details that are specific to your server, such as databases or other data sources. As the message states, when you publish the page or discard the draft, both the temporary folder and the page inside are deleted.
