Yes so I got it to work, it just decided to randomly work when I showed my husband why I was so angry haha
I turned off every plugin, and went into jetpack debugging and turned it off completely and then swapped the theme back to 17, once I did that it saved. I was able to re-add all my other plugins and themes and they continued to work after that. Hopefully this helps anyone else with this problem. I dont know why it worked that time but it did.
That’s true, I also run a buddypress website that users being able to preview it, in anyway… seriously helps.
If a user can’t see any activity or can’t see what the site generally looks like even with screenshots they won’t sign up. Think of all the “sign-up-we-aren’t-a-scam” sites that are out there. That’s their biggest point, not letting you actually see what you are doing. So people will generally avoid them like the plague.
