RW7 breaks all my sites' previews

For preview, RW6 used to render pages to the hard drive and open those in the browser.

RW7 has changed this model and serves the rendered preview through a local temporary web server.

This breaks all my sites’ previews for the following reason: in my PHP pages, I have to include a file on the server using require(). That file is not available in my local environment (and I cannot create it locally), so the RW7 preview fails with a php error message.

Is there a way to go back to the old preview method? Alternatively is there a way to tell php to ignore these errors?

[edited for clarity]

Hi @chrismarquardt,

if you search for ‘php preview’ on this forum you may find some answers there. I think that - for the moment - it’s a known problem.


Thanks, glad I’m not the only one having issues with that.
