Sorry, I’m not being clear. I’ve just made a fresh installation on another server of both the theme and WP 3.5. I’ve just made one custom template and applied it to the sample page.
The default template shows the same content on the edit and live page.
default template http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=4kfqqq&s=6
Using custom layout I don’t see anything on the edit page and can only change content by changing the custom layout. The edit page shows zero characters and anything typed on it doesn’t appear anywhere on the page.
custom layout http://tinypic.com/r/29yk2kl/6
custom layout edit page http://tinypic.com/r/9fz4f9/6
I’m expecting to see the content of the layout with the placeholder text when I go to edit the page with the custom layout applied.
I’ve got about a dozen WP installations on this server so permissions aren’t an issue.
