Question HELP! Preview page looks good, live version is completely screwed



New Member
Hi! I appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks in advance!

I'm an amateur website builder... Anyways, I created my page and it looks perfect in preview mode, but then when I go to view it live, it's completely f*cked. I uploaded two screenshots -- one is preview mode and one is Live.

It appears to be loading mobile view when I'm viewing it on my laptop. Plus the images are broken.

When I view it on my iPhone, the page is still fcked up (no color, some images are broken).

I've already wasted way too many hours troubleshooting whatever I could find on google. Things i've tried:
• Clearing cache in browser and host (via wordpress)
• Disabled all plugins
• Regenerated CSS (multiple times)
• Switched CSS Print Method to Internal
• Changed themes
• Viewed it in incognito mode
• I've created new pages with my custom template but same issue.
• I created a new page then loded a free Elementor template; then made it my front page -- same issue. Loaded the mobile version on my desktop with broken images

I contacted bluehost and they "propogated" my domain or something. Basically my page was using a temp domain, which they replaced with my actual domain.

I think the issue also had to do with the SSL certification, because it was registered to my actual domain. So prior to the "propogation" there was a conflict between the SSL. temp domain and actual domain.

I also used Elementor's 'Replace URL Tool' to replace the temp URL with my actual (HTTPS) domain.
