Writer's Portal Previewing with Unapproved Overlays/ Backgrounds

I see that the preview issue has been common for other writers at the moment, so my grey’d out preview bar only working every now and then isn’t much of a problem.

However, I’ve added a bunch of backgrounds and overlays. I tried to use one of them in my next episode and it’s telling me to “Please correct your script errors to preview your story.” - the only script error is the one that notifies you that your backgrounds hasn’t been approved.

Hoping this can be fixed!

I’m frustrated that backgrounds and overlays have not been approved for over a week!

I am experiencing the same problem at the moment. Anytime I clicked the preview button, it would turn grey and it would not have the ability to click anymore. Out of anger, I would click the grey preview button again hoping it would let me preview. However, a message would pop up saying that I have errors to correct even though there isn’t any coding errors. Like you said, the only script error I am seeing is the " Background hasn’t been approved".

I ended up sending a long email to the support team explaining everything to them and they responded giving me a list of things to try. Guess what? None of them worked, and I am really really REALLY frustrated to be honest. I hope they get this bug fixed as soon as possible so that I can resume to my stories as normal.


It’s so annoying! I can’t preview my script just because I’m waiting on backgrounds?
