Can't edit block design

Permalink
Hi... I'm having trouble with a site I'm working on. Until recently I was able to custom design blocks by going to Edit - Design, but 'Design' has disappeared. All the usual stuff is there, including 'Custom Template'... but not 'Design'. Is this a javascript error? Does anyone know how to get it back?

Are you sure the area permissions allow you to edit the design?

Advanced permissions are switched off so presumably area and block permissions are set as page defaults... and it's across the whole site (which uses two different themes).

Should I switch advanced permissions on? BTW I'm on latest C5 version too.

OK, strange. It's hard to say without digging any deeper into the permissions code.

But I don't think enabling the advanced permissions would help if it has just stopped working.

Do you know at which point this option disappeared from the menu? Did you install some add-on or update the core?

That was my first thought... because then it could be some kind of Javascript clash. But, no, nothing major has changed on the site - I was able to do use Edit - Design about three weeks ago because I changed some blocks locally that way.

The only changes I've made to the site in the last week have been small CSS tweaks and a new font for H1, H2 - which is a Google font script inside and uses a 'get Google font' PHP thingy on the home page, which is a different theme. If I revert to the old font, it still doesn't work.

The home page theme is a parallax thing so it's very JS heavy. If you're intrigued, maybe you could take a look at the source code for me to see if there's anything in there? The url iswww.www.bucklandhallweddings.co.uk...
Thanks for your input

I don't think it can be seen by looking at the source code of the page. It would require debugging the permissions related code in the system (concrete5) itself.

There is one configuration that can be used to disable the design menu but it is impossible that it would be set on its own. It would require someone touching your config files or installing an add-on that would set that config value.

Thanks for your help Mainio but it's now solved (and it's dead simple). Somehow I managed to whitelabel custom design without realising it through define() in the config file - which I suspect is the method you were talking about. Not sure how I didn't pick that up earlier... pah!
