Promo Box doesn't display content with Layout Builder 2.0

    Hi Jason,

    I’m running JS 1.2.4 with WP 4.0 and the new Layout Builder.

    I cleared my browser cache as well as looked at the site in a new browser.

    This is a relatively new and unpublished site. I have de-activated all but JS plugins.

    I created a new “Template” for the home page. I did not have a previous template.

    I used one of the existing sample layouts and added some text to the Promo Box. The Promo box will not output the text in the fields in the Template builder. See attached screenshots:

    The HTML for the Element is being output, but there is no text inside the HTML tags.

    P.S. The Get Started button will output, just not the text.

    Yeah, you’re the third to report this one. I’ve got it fixed. I had just forgot to implement the old options on that element, when user has an older theme.

    I’m working out a couple other stuff with the Builder tab and it jiving with the Visual/Text editor, and I’ll get a 2.0.1 update out. It’s looking like I need to just get rid of the “Builder” tab and have the layout builder appear above Visual/Text editor when user selects the “Custom Layout” page template.

    I thought so. Thanks. No worries. I’m not updating any sites just yet with new plugins. Just using on works in progress that are unpublished. Sorry I didn’t see that in the forums.

    I love the Builder Tab! But, I have seen similar themes replace the whole Visual Editor interface by hiding the visual editor and showing their builder. If the person toggles the visual editor back on, they will see tons of shortcodes with their content in it. So, the builder is a complex shortcode generator.

    Yeah, I really like the Builder tab, too. But I designed and originally created it before WordPress 4.0, and the new sticky tabs thing, which completely botches everything for me.

    But, this concept that you’re describing about replacing the whole thing and inserting shortcodes is something I’m very familiar with and have tried to make it a point not to make things work in this way.

    I think it’s important to maintain the “content” portion of the Edit Page screen. I want the content of the page, edited how people are familiar with, to be able to be integrated into the custom layout. Also, with the concept of templates that the Builder v2 introduces, being able to edit the content is important, as well.

    This is what I’m thinking. What do you think?

    A v2.0.1 update has been posted for the Layout Builder plugin. Please let me know if you continue to have any problems.

    IMPORTANT: Make sure to clear your browser cache after updating the Layout Builder plugin to ensure all new scripts are working properly when you’re editing a layout.
