The Instant View Editor uses a three-column layout, so you really want to use it on a desktop screen that's wide enough. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Issue #1

According to 2.4 -
Pages under paywall must NOT generate IV.
"2.4. Inaccessible pages
Pages that are fully or partially behind a paywall."

If the paywall is so ineffective (like in this case where the same template works seamlessly for free and 'paid' articles alike), then it can be said that the page is not really "behind" anything, and for sure it isn't "inaccessible".

Broadly speaking, the Instant View 'motto' appears to be: do what the users want, not what website owners want. To me, avoiding a dull paywall (simply by not running JavaScript) is not unlike removing ads: most publishers would think of it as an unacceptable loss of revenue, yet in Instant View it's the rule.
Declined by admin
1) For me there is no paywall
2) the 2.4 checklist point rather is about websites where instead of the article, a paywall notifications is being shown. If the article's content can still be fetched although there is a paywall, it's fine to generate IV
Type of issue
IV generated for non-target page
