Hi @LaMind3,

You can use ${wcmmode.preview} as mentioned below to add any code specific to preview mode only.

 

<div data-sly-test="${wcmmode.preview}">
<h1>Preview Mode</h1>
</div>

Hi,

 

Try "wcmmode.preview" but when we change from edit mode to preview there wont be page refresh and this will not work as intended. You need to do a page refresh on selecting preview mode.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi @LaMind3 ,

 

Try with the test condition as below:

</sly>
<slydata-sly-test="${!wcmmode.edit || wcmmode.disabled}">
<h1>Content only showed on preview/published mode</h1>
</sly>

 

Regards,

As mentioned by @Manjunath_K${wcmmode.preview} will work but if you are in edit mode and click on preview then it will not work and there is a reason for that. you need to reload the page after clicking on preview then it will show content which is based on preview condition. The same applies for switching from preview to edit mode.

 

I would suggest to include edit mode as well in the condition

${wcmmode.preview || wcmmode.edit}

@LaMind3  similar case has been addressed at https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-experience-manager/how-to-add-the-author-edit... please check.

Also, as preview mode demands a page refresh, can use ${wcmmode.preview || wcmmode.edit} for your case. If that conditional output has to work on publish mode then please add ${wcmmode.disabled}.
