Hover Buttons don't show up in "preview in browser"

Hover Buttons don't show up in "preview in browser"

I would like to use the hover button feature in front page for my links index on my website. I got all set up and the buttons work the way I want them in "preview" mode but in "preview in browser" it doesnt work. They just aren't there. I lined the hover buttons up in the shared border on left side of page and want the same buttons on all pages I specify. What am I doing wrong or doesn't the hover button feature work that way?

RE: Hover Buttons don't show up in "preview in browser"

Hover buttons might look nice but they are not that great to use - they use Java.  And some people might not have that installed and sometimes on IE, Java interacts inappropriately from time to time.

The first thing I would do is to make sure that you have Java installed. Publish the site because if I remember correctly, you need to have this on the server or at least view it in IE locally.  Using the Preview won't show the button.

Corey is correct - you have to have it published to a server running Front Page Extensions for the FP interactive buttons to work.
