Edit with pro after changing the page template

Hi, I have an issue which is kind of basic, but never paid attention to it :slight_smile:

I am using Pro child theme. I hava a page with a specific template. For the sake of the argument, let’s say that the page name is ‘Toys’ and the template name is ‘Template1’. Template file is added as it’s usually done in WP - as file page-template1.php inside the theme directory.

The page ‘Toys’ had this template selected in the settings and the page was edited in ‘normal’ WP, not with ‘Edit with Pro’ option.

Yesterday I duplicated the page-template1.php file and created new template, i.e. ‘Template2’ (file page-template2.php).

After that I changed the template setting for Toys page to Template2. I did it with Quick edit on the page list.

The issue I have now is that if I want to edit the page (action Edit form the page list, not Quick edit), I get to the editor, but there’s no content.

As far as I understand, the page kind of automatically switched content to Pro?

If I click on Edit with Pro, will I be able to edit the content (I’m not sure I want to click at the moment - I once saw some kind of notice that if I do this, there’s no way back to be able to edit such page in ‘normal’ WP interface)?

Is there a way to again edit my Toys page in ‘normal’ mode? I know it’s strange to pay for the theme and then still edit the page in ‘normal’ mode, but I’d like to keep all possibilities open :slight_smile:

Hello @redorbit,

Thanks for writing to us.

The contents added through the Cornerstone or Content Builder is not editable in the Block or Gutenberg editor (WP default editor ), and vice-versa that’s why the content is not showing in the Gutenberg (WP default editor ).


Thanks for the response …

Does that mean that both contents (Cornerstone and Gutenberg) are two totally different entities?

The issue is that now I can’t see any content in Gutenberg, but if I go to Cornerstone (Edit with Pro), I see the content, but it’s not editable. Can’t do anything,

Any suggestion?

Hi @redorbit,

Yes, the content between the Cornerstone and Gutenberg are save in different tables in database that’s why Cornerstone content is not editable outside the builder.

Sorry, my bad - we were actually using ACF :frowning:

I just forgot I have to enable them for this template also.

Problem solved :slight_smile:
