Boxes, twitter etc shows on page...but if I put anything in page editor, html or visual, it saves but does not appear at all on site itself. What am I doing wrong? I am making a business page and not a blog site, so I just want to be able to use the pagelines boxes, features etc but also be able to use the typical wordpress page editor. Please help.

Whatever is placed in the editor will not appear on the page unless the "Content" section is placed in the "Page Templates" grid. If you need further assistance please let me know. :)

Yeah, I have everything pretty much working off template 1. It has "Content" in the page templates area. When I check to see what is in "Content" it has features, boxes, callout and soapboxes in that order. If I go to the "about" page "content" is not hidden but everything inside it is.

Could it be something to do with Wordpress itself? Perhaps the visual editor running into problems with the version of wordpress?

This may be a bug, but there is a different way to do this that will give you the same results. Instead of using the editor, place what you want in a "Content Box" section and add that to your Page Templates area in Template 1. EDIT: Are you using any editor plugins? IE TinyMCE?

No. No plugins. I will try the content box method but eventually the page will have to have a live streaming box and I'm wondering if it'll make a difference if it is in a content box.

Hi, The about page, what template is it using ? Is it the same as the other pages on your website ?

Hi, In order for the content added to the post/page content editor to display on your website, you must have both the Content Section and PostLoop section active on the template you post/page is using. These sections are active by default and therefore, you're not seeing your content, you have removed them yourself when playing around. http://screencast.com/t/NFL0kBss83RC http://screencast.com/t/fnjUsPXmh

Yes, @simple-mama, the sections demo is what I was looking for. However, I don't see an Accept button, only green Thanks buttons. And yes, @punsak, I agree that it is good to now have the non work-around answer in the Forum!
