Can snipcart block be added to a page type default (output)

Permalink Browser Info Environment
Hi,

I want to add the snipcart block to a page type default so when adding a pew product page it will already place the block, and ideally some settings.

I edited a page type defaults (output) and placed the snipcart block, but it didn't appear to place on the page. I also placed the cart, and that did place as expected.

After saving and exiting, if I go to re-edit the page type output, it says the page does not exist.

Thoughts? Is this not possible?

Thanks!

Hi David,

I'm not aware of any technical reason why this shouldn't work, a default block should be able to be added as a default.

I've just tested this myself in both a 5.7 and v8 install, with caching on, and was able to successfully do this. I created a new page type, configured it for adding, went to edit the 'output' for the page and added a Snipcart Product block with a name, price and SKU.
Then when I create new pages of that type that block appears as a default (and when I edit the block it gives me the expected warning about it being a default). If I then go back to the Page Template output, I can view the default block again and edit it.

Looking at your Environment details, it looks like you're running a slightly older version of 5.7, there have been a couple of releases of the 5.7 branch since 5.7.5.9 - I'm wondering if you're hitting a broader concrete5 bug to do with defaults. Are you able to achieve the same thing but with a different block type?

The fact that you're going back to edit the page type output and it says it does not exist is quite strange, I've not seen that myself before.

Hi,
Thanks for the quick reply.
We have not seen this behavior with other blocks, but updating the base install would be the best first course of action I think. I will update this with my progress.
Thanks!
