allow AJAX in theme preview

AJAX does not work in themes in theme preview https://wp-themes.com/ website.

I do not know why it is disabled, maybe for security reasons. But this makes many themes look broken.
Please allow AJAX requests.

Hi and welcome to Trac!

Can you provide a link to an affected theme so we can see what can be done?

Ajax requests are not blocked as far as I'm aware, but due to how the previewer is built, it's entirely possible that it doesn't operate as expected.

  2. AJAX pagination, "next" button after first six posts.


  1. AJAX lightbox, 'zoom icon' on boat thumb.


  1. AJAX pagination, right circled arrow next to first three posts.
