Export and Clone have problems with popups

If I export or clone a site, even on the same device, the export and clone do not render pages with popups (on windows). I’ve adjusted browser, anti-virus and windows to allow popups and allow local permissions. Is there something I need to do to have accurate exports and clones? I can send a zip file to you to test.

What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc

Just run export, or clone to the same localwp app.

Hi @slabydl

Are you using any popular builders on your site like Elementor, Astra, Divi, BB, etc? There could be issues with CSS Regeneration or URLs that need to be updated when the site changes.

The Flywheel guide to clearing your theme/plugin cache

On a clone/export when you open that up do you see any console errors regarding mixed or insecure content?

Hey @slabydl – are you still experiencing this issue?

If so, can you provide a little more detail around what’s going on? If you can, I’d love to see a screencast of the problem to get a better idea about what’s going on.
