Hey @obiezei, just tried on my end, I think you're experiencing a white screen because you're actually rendering white text on white background:

It looks like this happens because you're implementing dark more on your website, exciting! You can fine-tune your Slice Simulator's background to match the body's by using the background prop:

background="linear-gradient(to bottom, transparent, rgb(var(--background-end-rgb))) rgb(var(--background-start-rgb))"

This does the trick on my end:

Let us know about it! Thanks for being part of Prismic Community~!
