  • Can No Longer Select Elements In Design View

    Hello everyone,

    Hopefully just a quick one, but since I upgraded our site from v9 to 11.0.2, I've been unable to click on any items in the design view.

    Previously, I could click on say a subsection list, and the layout code for the subsection list would appear in the pane below. This no longer happens on any page.

    I've tried sections, products and fragments, nothing seems to work.

    So I'm just wondering if this is something anyone else has come across and if there's any way to fix it?

    I've tried searching the forum for things like 'selectable = true', but haven't come across anything useful.

    Make sure you have disabled any external scripts in preview, i find they cause havoc with this.

      Hi Lee, thanks for your reply.

      Sounds probable, but it sutmped me because it was working fine in v9.

      Anyway, the external scripts I have running are Google Analytics and 2 other tracking codes called GetClicky and wowanalytics. See code below.

      <!-- Start GetClicky -->
      <a title="Real Time Web Analytics" href=""><img alt="Real Time Web Analytics" src="" border="0" /></a>
      <script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
      <script type="text/javascript">try{ clicky.init(66391729); }catch(err){}</script>
      <noscript><p><img alt="Clicky" width="1" height="1" src="" /></p></noscript>
      <!-- End GetClicky -->
      <actinic:variable name="GoogleAnalyticsMarkup" value="Google Analytics Tracking Code" />
      <!-- Place this tag in your head or just before your close body tag -->
      <script type="text/javascript" src="">
        {lang: 'en-GB'}
      <!-- WOW Tracking Code Start -->
      <script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
      <script type='text/javascript'>
      try {
      wowTracker.ClientId = 'a4561462-ab3b-4f72-8c02-916b2be7c2ef';
      } catch (err) { }
      <!-- WOW Tracking Code End -->
      Do I have to declare selectable="false" in each script tag, or somewhere else?

      Thanks again,

        You need to put a block if around the Javascript like so:

        <Block If>
        Javascript code block

        the condition you need to set for the block if is:
        "IsPreviewMode" == false
        This tells Actinic to disable the script unless the website is "live" on a server.
        Tis will also speed up your page previews in Actinic as it wont be wasting time with the script.
