Using Lectora Online:

Ever since the upgrade, when I publish, or publish preview, a page that uses the hyperlink > Display Message, the page is blank.

I remove the hyperlink and the page previews fine. Help!

    What browser are you previewing the course in?  What action is attached to the hyperlink?  Can you provide a picture of what's happening?  A copy of the course files?

    Hi Jennifer,

    I am previewing in IE11. I also previewed in IE10. On the page, I have a word turned into a hyperlink and then I selected Display Message. In the published version in the past, it just gives a little text box that comes up with my designated verbiage. Now it just gives me a blank screen for any page that contains one of those Display Message hyperlinks. Unfortunately, providing a screen shot wouldn't help. However, I've attached the .pkg file for your review. In this file, it happens on page 2.

    I downloaded the course files and experienced the same issue when previewing in Chrome as well.  I was able to resolve the issue by removing the pop up hyperlink and faking the functionality.  To do this I changed the text to be blue and underlined then added an invisible button.  I checked it in preview and as a published HTML file and this fixes the issue.  I'll bring it to the development team to see if this is truly a "bug".  Attaching my version of your files with the button for reference.  Let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Thank you for looking into this. I was afraid that this would be the solution. I use that functionality a LOT in my courses. I'll go back and make the adjustment, but it's going to be painful. At least I know the problem isn't just me. :-)

    Thank you again for your help. Please let me know if the development team has any updates.

    Regards,

    Jennifer

    I am having the same issue with the blank pages. It also transfers over when I publish to Saba. I built over 300 pages with this.

    :(
