After upgrading to 7.3.7 preview is no longer working, it's always showing the published version and a 404 for non published documents.
If you publish the page and make changes you see the published version in preview but not your changes.
I'm also seeing this problem if I install 7.3.7 with the Fanø starter kit, unpublish an existing page (say "Contact"), and then click Preview - I get 404 page not found.
This is also affecting the site I'm currently working on.
By the way, the fresh install has disableFindContentByIdPath="false", so that is not the problem.
Hi, Please find an attached patch for this issue, you can unzip and just copy in the DLL to your /bin. This fix will be definitely be part of 7.4.0, we may also end up creating a 7.3.8 version.
Thanks Shannon, that's fixed it, although I had some trouble convincing my Visual Studio project to use the new DLL (Umbraco was added using NuGet). If anyone else is having trouble, I had to replace the DLL in
@firstname.lastname@example.org Note that this will not work with oackage restore, nor when you deploy through MSDeploy for example. For now it would be best to copy the new dll to a "lib" folder and do a Post-Build copy of that file into your bin folder so that it's always overwritten with the new version.
Thanks again Shannon, that's a much better way to do it.
Thanks! There's an easier solution than putting the dll in a "lib" folder + Post-Build copy:
Visual Studio should now copy the file to the bin folder automatically and MSDeploy works. Just don't forget to remove the file when updating Umbraco!
+1 for a 7.3.8 as 7.4 is not an option for us at the moment :)
Any chance that preview can be added to regression testing?
@Shandem The linked issue is private or something.
oh sorry, this is the list of backports:

@Shandem Looks like 7.4 is also an issue with JSON blobs (guessing). Any idea if the Grid is having issues? https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/archetype/sound-off/75111-preview-doesnt-work#comment-240336
Not sure mate, if you can reproduce the issue please report on a new ticket with details
This is Ram. I am having the same preview issue for the umbraco version 7.1.9 could you please apply the update on this version and attach the updated version 7.1.9. It will be very helpful for us. Thanks.
I have attached 7.1.9 version
We suggest that you upgrade to the latest version of Umbraco - it is a painless upgrade and there are several hundreds of bugs fixed from your version to 7.4.3
Thanks for your quick response. Unfortunately as this is new update and we are having merely 5 large applications, currently little bit difficult. It will be so helpful if you are giving 7.1.9 with the updated version.
We were installed longtime back and everything was working fine. Suddenly we are getting the preview issue that we were not applied any version upgrade.
@Rameshkumar.Ramaiyan@gmail.com then you need to open a new issue and explain the problem you are having. You issues is different than what is listed here. The issue listed here is specific to 7.3.7 - 7.4.0. If 'suddenly' something stops working then you'll need to determine why - since it was working before. Best thing to do would be to ask on http://our.umbraco.org and explain the exact problem with steps to reproduce. Also note that if we have fixed issues in later versions we will always request that you upgrade and always test with the latest version of Umbraco.
I'm still getting this in 7.5.3. The URL is a little confusing, so I'm wondering if something else is going on: www.oursitename.org/umbraco/preview/?id=16503#?id=16503 which results in a 404 error. I've disabled any rewrite rules we have, thinking maybe that was causing the issue, but still getting 404s.
This issue still exists as of Umbraco 7.5.2. Please see http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-9081
We are seeing this issue as well in 7.5.0 and 7.5.3. We get a 404 on saved (unpublished) nodes when attempting to preview. Also, not sure if related (seems to correlate), but we're finding that published nodes with new saved content are NOT showing the new content on preview.
@sfarron please respond on the new ticket instead of this closed one: http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-9081
Note that I just tested all this on 7.5.3, see U4-9081 - if you can reproduce on a clean 7.5.3 we're happy to have a look. As of yet, I have no idea how to reproduce though :(
@Shandem is it possible to share what have been changed inside your pre-compiled DLL listed above? One of our community members raised this issue with 7.4.2 on the trainings and as they are forced to use this version (cannot update now) and can't use this pre-compiled DLL they will be glad for having a code which needs to be included / changed there to make their own custom build. Can you help? :)
@m.zajkowski The fix was here: http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-8004 But if they're on 7.4.2 they already have this code in their version.
@sebastiaan This bug isn't fixed. Several people (myself included) have posted reproduction steps over at http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-9081
I believe the ticket is still actually assigned to you and is open.
We have several projects here in 7.4+ and 7.5+ that have this exact problem.
I know this is all semantics but this exact bug was indeed fixed, the issue in U4-9081 seems to be because of custom Owin providers. :-)
If you can repro the issue without custom Owin setups then please provide details in U4-9081.
Thanks @sebastiaan. Pushed it forward to the interested people :)
