Setting Up a blog page to take content2 users found helpful
1) I've added a new blog post page type.
2) Underneath the "edit form" section I've added the usual:
3) I've set up a full page template under "output" with "composer control" blocks.
4) I've attempted to add a sample blog post.
I'm still just seeing blue blocks and not content. (See attached screenshot.)
Can someone tell me what I'm missing?
I'm seeing the blue blocks instead of content on the actual blog pages (accessed through the sitemap) rather than just the output template pages. I've tried what you said - deleting them and then adding them again, but I'm still having the same issue.
On the published page it pulls in the 'title' element set in Composer but not 'Body' or 'content' from Composer (replaced with blue block).
This has been set up on the Default page as Andrew states above but simply repeats the block info on any child pages.
Any ideas welcome
Now, I'm back on another project in 5.7, doing the exact same thing, getting the exact same issue. I set up the page type. Added composer options. Set up page type defaults using the composer area block. I'm getting blue blocks and only blue blocks. This is true across two different servers.
I can't figure it out. I've invested a lot of time into learning Concrete5 and I'd really like to figure this out because at the moment it's the only thing keeping me from deploying in 5.7 (Which I'm really excited about.)
Are you getting the blue blocks even when just publishing new blog entries ?
If so, I wonder if that is the root of pastorryanhaydon's woes...? I do find it a little weird that Main is auto-populated with Blocks.
And while we're on the topic - it might be a nice touch to have a 'Basics' form bit pre-populated in the Form Control for new Page Types.
pastorryanharden: I have remade the Blog Entry in your site, removed the blocks from the Main area and placed them in Content. In the future it might be best to use "Main" instead of "Content" – but this is a bug and we will get rid of the behavior that automatically inserts the blocks, since that's the easiest way to fix this problem going forward.
Hope this helps – thanks for your patience.
You were a huge help.
