Can't edit Page Type "Defaults"1 user found helpful
I've ran into a problem concerning page types.
First of all, Page Types are a tricky subject for me; I'm still learning them.
Basically, ever since about a couple weeks ago, I am not able to edit any of the "defaults" for any page types. I added my own custom page type, and it works fine. It's basically a duplicate of the code in left_sidebar, but I named it with a different handle so I can affect it individually. I first noticed that I couldn't edit the "defaults" in this page type, and I figured it was something I did wrong; since that particular page type isn't very prevalent throughout our site, I just let it be and added the necessary blocks manually. However, now when I go to edit the "defaults" for the "left_sidebar" Page Type, or the "side_main_side" Page Type, or any Page Type for that matter, it does not allow me to edit defaults. I put the Page Type in Edit mode, and there are no editable areas (see attachment). Does anyone know what would cause this, and a way to fix it?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
However, it does not address the underlying problem: why are these permissions being revoked seemingly at random in the first place? At one page types I created had editable defaults, and suddenly this changed. Hope the root can be dealt with.
Permissions are uber-confusing sometimes so I might be wrong here but aren't the permissions you set on this page type actually setting the permissions that will be used on resultant page once it's used in the site? Theoretically you shouldn't be allowed to alter your own permission settings. Yes/No?
mhawke's response solved the issue I was having (super user)
My page was a page type that was installed from the Discussions plugin (the Discussions page type to be precise).
Even when I drag an item like textbox or image instead of a hand symbol, mous pointer turns to an stop sign.
Please create a new discussion for this issue.
