Sections not active in template are showing up in Page Meta settings

Recommended Posts


I am trying to use a Template for a new page. Currently the Content Area for this Template is empty but for some reason when I edit the page there are two sections (Boxes and Boxes #2) in the Page Meta settings. Shouldn't there be none? I realize I can choose to Hide these sections but I don't understand why they show up at all since there are no Sections in my Template. Is there a way to remove these unwanted Sections?

Firstly, in your template you really should have at the very least, PostLoop.  That should be in every Content Area template except the 404 Error template.


You may have boxes added and cloned in Page Templates, Header or other templates we're not seeing. The other things showing up in your PageLines Meta Settings are likely in other parts of the site via Drag & Drop.  For example, you show the Content Area for Template 1, but you have Primary Sidebar in the settings, which means it's going to likely be located in SB1.


If you give a good and thorough look around to all the possible options in Drag & Drop, you're likely going to find everything.  Rest assured, sections don't mysteriously appear in the PageLines Meta Settings if they're not in the templates, somewhere.


Also, in Page Templates, make sure Content is present for all the templates except the 404 Error one.

Apparently they were in the Active Sections of the Template itself, I guess I just clicked right onto the Content Area without checking to see these sections below. Not sure how I missed that.

      Hi, even though I just got a SSL certificate, I can't get the green padlock to appear due to the following error:
      :A file with an insecure url of "http://yemoonyah.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-boxes/check.svg" was loaded via the javascript file: https://yemoonyah.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.12.4 on line 3. The insecure URL may not be directly contained in the script file and may exist elsewhere."
      I figured if I delete and re-install the plugin it might fix the problem but will my boxes on the website still be there? Or do I have to redesign everything all over again if I delete the plugin and then re-install it?

      I need some help!  I am trying to add a Square booking script.  When I add it to a embed section it crashes the page editor and I am unable to save the page version.  I have tried using different browsers with the same result.
       I can add the script on the backend in the word press content area and get it to show and work, but it look terrible.  A page with in a page.  http://www.zoeanastacia.com/booking/.
      I need help getting the page editor to work properly or to make the wp content section to not look like an 90's iframe.
