Made changes to Wide/Tablet/Mobile versions, but can‘t see any changes on preview

Builder Issues

Please check if you turned Wide/Tablet/Mobile versions. If it‘s turned on and you still can‘t see any changes, be sure that you‘re checking the same version in site builder and browser. For example, if you‘re checking Mobile version, both site builder and browser should have Mobile menu button.

Website looks different in site builder and in browser

Builder Issues

1. If you have some custom files except files which are published from builder in your hosting web root folder then make sure that your files do not intersect with generated files. The intersection can be caused by equal file names in web root folder and "sitepro" folder. For example the website may not work properly if both files exist: [web-root]/js/main.js and [web-root]/sitepro/js/main.js. In this case you need to rename or move to another folder all equal files like [web-root]/js/main.js.
The same issue can appear with folders. For example if you have a page on website with URL "Contacts" (http://mywebsite.com/Contacts/) then the page will not work if you also have folder "Contacts" in website root folder.

2. If website is running on Apache server then make sure that Apache module "mod_rewrite" is enabled for website host. Without this module website may look completely messed up — with no images and styles loaded.

3. Please open file ".htaccess" located in web root folder of your website. Delete (or comment) all the content (if there is one) between lines "#### PERSISTENT CONTENT ####" and "#### PERSISTENT CONTENT END ####". After that reload website in browser and check whether the problem has gone.

4. Make sure that you are looking at the same version in site builder website and published website — that is maybe you see "Desktop" version in builder and "Wide" version in published website. Try resizing browser window with published website to see how it is changed (if other modes are enabled in builder).

Can't change container width

Builder Issues

Builder Issues

All my components (text, photos, buttons, etc.) disappeared when I changed the template

Builder Issues

Each template has its own default elements and each element is placed differently per template. So, after changing template, your created website will be lost.

New template is shown or website builder asks to choose a template instead of showing my website

Builder Issues

1. You accidentally pressed "Reset" or "Change template" button. Check if you have manual or automatic backup enabled. Hover on Publish icon and you will see "Backup/Restore" item;
2. You closed the website builder without pressing "Save draft" after creating a website.
Always make sure you saved your website before closing the browser tab. Also we advise to make website backups regularly.

Move website/account to another server

Builder Issues

If you migrate one or more websites/accounts to another server then some changes might be needed in builder for a successful migration.
There can be some cases when actions might be required. Note. Use these recommendations only if domains of websites are not changed.

1. Website/account is moved from one server to another where both servers use the same builder brands. In this case no actions are required.

2. Website/account is moved from one server to another and servers use different builder brands. In this case action is required before website migration. Note that it does not depend on who belongs server where website is about to be migrated - whether it belongs to you or to another hosting company. You will need to migrate website from old builder (used on old server) to new builder (used on new server):
1) Open builder for migrating website on old Hosting Panel. Hover on Publish icon and press "Backup/Restore" item;
2) Download backup;
3) Migrate website/account;
3) Open builder for migrated website on new Hosting Panel. Select Backup/Restore, restore it;
4) Publish the website.
Note that server where website was migrated also must be licensed on Site.pro (must have license with new server IP).

Mass website/account migration
If you want to migrate many websites from one server to another at once and servers use different builder brands then please contact us in tickets and we will give you instructions.

Can't find destination folder

Builder Issues

If this error is thrown during publication then it means that builder cannot open folder where the website is meant to be published (usually the folder is "public_html" but it can differ depending on hosting control panel).
To fix this error just make sure that you have web root folder in your home directory in file manager. If you are not sure what folder exactly you need to create (or check existence) then contact your hosting provider and provide this FAQ message.

Custom HTML widget does not work

Builder Issues

The problem may appear due to improper HTML code used in the widget. One of the common reasons is that non-HTML5 tags are used (like <gcse:search></gcse:search>). They should be replaced with valid HTML5 tags (like <div class="gcse-search"></div>).

I am not receiving mails from contact form

Builder Issues

The problem may occur when you are using field Form will be sent from this Email in form configuration in builder. For example you use address in this field example@mysite.com. Then mails may not be received on your email account due to the fact that domain mysite.com does not have DNS record of type SPF (for more details please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sender_Policy_Framework). Due to this mails can be blocked by mail servers. If you are an owner of domain "mysite.com" you need to add SPF record in DNS configuration of your domain.

When you do not have field "Form will be sent from this Email" filled in then the address no-reply@mysite.com is used (where "mysite.com" is replaced with your website domain name). In this case the reason of not receiving mails is the same as described above.

Texts overlap each other on website

Builder Issues

The problem occurs due to the fact that different devices and different browsers can render text a little differently what can have impact on text height (and as a result - text overlapping each other). To fix this problem you can follow these recommendations:
1. Do not use 0 value for Line height option for fonts in Styles menu. Here "0" means "normal" and it can be interpreted differently on different devices and browsers. Set some value which would be similar as it was with "0" (e.g. if you use font size "16" then line height can be around "19-20" what would make text look more or less the same as with value "0").
2. Do not forget to set style to text in Text widget. Double-click to edit text, select some text and look at what is chosen at left dropdown of text editor. It there is "Style" - it means that no style is set for selected text. Due to this any font can be used on published website depending on device and browser.
3. Avoid creating very huge Text widgets (containing a lot of text). If you have one just try to separate it to multiple Text widgets. Despite the fact that you did recommendation (1) and (2) some devices and browsers can continue render text a little differently. Most probably you will not see any difference in small texts but when there are huge text blocks on site the problem can occur.
4. Use Google fonts which are supported on majority of devices. Some default fonts may not be supported on different devices. They automatically replace font with a different one when you view site (it can be very similar) which can also contain small difference.

Official requests

Builder Issues
If you are a law enforcement authority and you want to get information of interest associated with the legal infringement ― you should submit a formal request by the email support@site.pro.

Server error (403)

Builder Issues

If error "Server error (403)" is thrown during saving draft/publishing or other actions in builder then it can happen due to the following reasons:

1. Your builder session has expired. The session in builder should never expire when you edit website. However there are few cases when it can happen:

  • someone else opened builder with your website from your account of hosting control panel. This action leads to your session expiration and new session establishing for another person.
  • you opened builder one more time for the same website in another browser or in incognito window. This action leads to session expiration of first window and new session establishing for new window. To avoid this in the future we recommend you to have only one builder window opened at one time.
  • you left builder window opened for a long time and your computer went to sleep or darkened screen. This can lead to limited browser activity for opened windows and prevent builder from refreshing session.

Unfortunately if session expires it means that all your changes made after last draft saving in builder will be lost. To continue editing website in builder you need to open builder again from hosting control panel.

2. (Only for On-Premises brand) Builder is facing temporary server problems. During saving draft/publishing website a big set of data is sent to server. Sometimes servers can have some active POST filters which scans all data by some criteria(s) and can block request to server if needed.
To fix this issue contact your hosting provider (or site builder administrator) and tell about this problem.

Horizontal scrollbar on site

Builder Issues

If you see horizontal scrollbar on your site then it most probably caused by some elements on site which are placed too far to the right from site content. You can easily check this. Enter site builder and check all pages if they also have horizontal scrollbar in the editor. If it does then scroll right to the end and you will most probably find an element there (note that it can be absolutely white - for example small white Shape - so that it can sometimes be hard to detect it). Position the element properly inside content bounds or delete it if is not needed. If this element is needed only in one version (Wide, Desktop, Tablet, Phone) then you can right-click it and choose to hide it in context menu.
If no such elements left on page in the editor the horizontal scrollbar must disappear. After that publish your site.

"Form sending failed. (4): SMTP connect() failed"

Builder Issues

When you get this error when sending mail from your site then it usually means one of these:

  • SMTP data is incorrect (double-check username and password, make sure that you specified correct host and port).
  • Firewall on your hosting server blocks outgoing connections from specified SMTP host and/or port. Contact your hosting support and describe this problem to fix the issue.
  • Specified SMTP host (in case if it is a domain — not IP) is not resolved on your hosting server or resolved to a wrong IP address. Contact your hosting support and describe this problem to fix the issue.

For more details on this issue please refer this page.

Facebook Pixel

Builder Issues

Facebook pixel can be added to your website by pasting Facebook pixel code in a Custom HTML widget which can be found in the "Advanced" category. If you want the script to appear on all website pages at once your should paste Facebook pixel code into website Settings -> Scripts -> "Before </head>".

Making your website reponsive

Builder Issues

Making your website responsive consists of the following steps:

  1. Turn on the "Phone" mode;
  2. Move each element considering borders on the mobile version;
  3. Check this mobile version on Preview and enable it;
  4. Do the same with other website versions: Tablet, Desktop, Wide;
  5. Use Auto Layout mode which makes your website responsive automatically (you need to create 1 version only).

I cannot remove Languages from website

Builder Issues

Multiple languages are created on website by drag&dropping Languages plugin and selecting 2 or more languages in plugin properties dialog.
Note that the site can remain multilingual even if you delete all Languages plugins from website. In this case the problem can occur that you do not have flags but website is still multilingual. To fix this and to completely delete all languages from website take the following steps:

  • add Languages plugin back on website to any place;
  • right-click Languages plugin with mouse and select RemoveFrom all languages (and → From all page if option is presented);
  • the dialog will appear with 2 options available — click the 2nd option "Delete all languages and all language items";

After that all languages will be deleted from website and only one language will remain — the one that was marked as Default (star symbol).

Receive mail notifications from Store

Builder Issues

Site.pro builder Store module supports mail notifications. Mail notifications can be sent both for the merchant and for the customer. There are 2 cases when notifications are sent: when the order is submitted and when the payment for order is received.

In order to configure mail notifications for yourself (merchant) add email address in builder Store properties → Settings tab → Contact Form block. Click "pencil" icon in contact form block and switch to "E-mail settings" tab. Type your email address in field "Form will be sent to this E-mail" where you want to receive mail notifications. You can also configure SMTP options in the "SMTP" tab.

Customers will get mail notifications to email address which they enter in Billing Information block. Note that Billing and shipping blocks can be disabled for customers in Store Cart module. To check if it is not disabled ensure that the option "Require Billing/Shipping Information" is enabled in Store Cart module.

Why do I not receive mail notifications even after adding email address in Store configuration?
Despite you added email address in "Contact Form" block settings there can be cases when mail notifications are not delivered. The usual reason for that is the absence of SPF record of your website domain. Please check this page for more details about this problem.

Earlier Store orders disappeared

Builder Issues

All orders are saved in published website in one of the data file. The only reason of missing orders may be related to file deletion (possibly you deleted website files and then re-published website).

The older file having all orders may be returned by restoring published website backup from hosting control panel of earlier version. After restoring the client should check in builder if earlier orders appeared. However note that website backup restoring on hosting will restore the whole earlier website version. So to make it up-to-date again just re-publish website in builder (builder will have up-to-date version). The re-publication will not delete restored orders.

This page can't load Google Maps correctly.

Builder Issues

If you see this message on published website then it means that your used API key lacks some requirements on Google console account. In order to see details of the problem open Developer console in browser on your website page with Google map (usually key F12) and switch to tab "Console". There you should see red error message from Google with problem details. Follow specified recommendations to fix the problem.
