Can't change my blog layout (7.1)

Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...


I know what's supposed to happen, but that isn't happening. I get edit popups for all the other sections on the page, except for the blog section. I have 2 blog pages on my site - the News page and the Free Fiction page. The Free Fiction page works fine - I get the manage posts popup. I don't get it on the News page though.

I'm not 100% sure I understand what you mean by 'open config, then pages.'

I don't have a 'config' menu - so I assume you mean the main menu?

Nothing happens. I can't move the section above the blog to a position below the blog.

I can create new sections above the blog and swap the positions of the sections above the blog, but none of the sections will move below the blog.

I also cannot create any sections below the blog. There is no option available.

I just recreated the page in an offline page.

The page layout is as follows (markduplock.com):


Blank section with 2 image blocks and a code block

Blog section


I started with a blog page template, deleted all the default posts and added 1 of my own. I added the blank section above the blog section and added the contents there. The page worked fine and I still had all the edit options available.

Then I added a 2nd blog post to the blog section and I lost all the edit options for the blog section.

 Not sure what's going on, but I think this is repeatable.

Tried to follow your formula and had no issues. Doesn't mean I did exactly the same things you did that might be causing the issue.

The only thing I can suggest at this point would be to Contact Customer Support.
