    Thanks, Mike, this was a real help!
    On some pages, I needed to save/update and view the front end view a few times before the “Text block” worked correctly.

    Can’t think what WordPress’s end game is producing such disruptive and ineffective page editing software.
    What proportion of WordPress users are already using a purchased “Theme” to get advanced styling features at a more advanced level, I wonder?


    Hola Mike

    Tengo este problema con el Actualización a WP5.0 No eh visto el hilo hasta después de crear la entrada..

    Gracias de Antemano


    @niky67, glad this was helpful.

    @Rafa.O, voy a ver.

    Best regards,


    Thanx a lot Mike.
    Thank you very much for your solution.
    It works. but every time I log into the backend again I have to repeat these steps because the described error occurs again after each new login.

    Thank you for the login, I have not heard back from the dev team on this issue yet, but once I do I’ll post at the top of this thread. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

    Installing the classic editor plugin restores the functionality of Avia Layout Builder and WP 5.0. That’s the best workaround at this point I think.


    Thank you for your feedback

    Hello, bloody WordPress is all I can say. There’s not even an option in the WP settings to disable it. So dumb.

    It would be ideal if there was a blanket solution rather than having to install plugins or add code to all sites to disable the Gutenberg editor – we have over 400 sites we’re hosting so this is not practical for us.

    Are you guys thinking of releasing an Enfold update, with code to override the Gutenberg editor that can be applied to all sites without the need to manually update? Or at least add an option to disable Gutenberg for the four people in the world that want to use it?


    Hi xansdesign,

    Sorry for the problem. Adding an option to disable Gutenberg in the theme might be something which could be implemented, though that option would likely not be pre-selected since it should be up to the user to decide. So that would mean that you would still have to make changes to all your sites unfortunately.

    Best regards,


    Hi, no need to apologise, it’s WordPress’s fault haha!

    That would be fine – even if we have to manually change it, at least there would be an option to disable it without having to install plugins and/or add code. Is this something you would consider?


    At the weekend I did updates from WordPress to version 5. Now the Avia Page Builder is not working properly anymore. The Function element icons can’t be moved down.

    If you want to drag a fuction icon over the end of the displayed screen, the screen will move up, but the screen will remain white and will not show anything.

    The same happens when I click on a function elements. Then the Function will be placed at the end of the work screen, but if I want to move it up, also only a white screen will appear again.

    I have already installed an update to Enfold version 4.51. That’s not the fault.

    Now I reinstalled WordPress back to version 4.9.8 and the Avia Page Builder works fine.


    We have already installed WordPress 5.0. I’m getting a bunch of error messages when i attempt to update Enfold with the conclusion “a valid url was not provided” How can get the enfold update to work when WP5 has been installed? thanks!

    Hi xansdesign,

    I’ve brought it up for discussion internally, at the end of the day it’s up to Kriesi to decide :-)

    Hi 4youth,

    Sorry for the problem. The update to 4.5 has to be done manually unfortunately, please refer to my replies in this thread:

    You can either update manually via FTP:, or use a plugin to upload the theme zip file:

    Also please read this thread:

    Best regards,


    Hi 4youth.
    You can upload Enfold via FTP. First download ENFOLD 4.5.1 and unpack the ZIP-File. This will create the folder ENFOLD. Now go to the directory THEMES on your server. Rename the old folder ENFOLD into ENFOLD-OLD (or something same like this) and then load the unpacked folder ENFOLD into this directory. It need a little bit time but it works. That’s it!

    Wordpress v5.0 Enfold v4.5.1 updated and installed.

    We are going to need a better solution than clicking “update” on every page in order for the ALB to work correctly.
    I have developed a website for a client with 1000s of pages that are using the ALB and clicking update on every page is not going to work.

    Has anyone figured out a way to fix the ALB for all pages at once (without having to update every single page)?



    After update WP5 and Enfold 4.5 it seems that with blogpost the former option to ‘not show the featured image on the post’ has dissapeared..
    I want a featured image but not within my blogpost. Anyone?



    I have not been able to updated Enfold on my site. I keep getting this error:
    “An error occurred while updating Enfold: Download failed. A valid URL was not provided.”
    Since I cannot update Enfold, I can’t use the advanced layout builder. Any idea what I can do to get Enfold to update? Not sure what “valid URL” is referring to.


    Nevermind, found my answer above!


    Um. Sorry, but there has to be a better answer to all of this than installing a plugin to undo Gutenberg to make Enfold work with the new WP?

    Enfold is a WordPress theme. The Enfold editor can’t be permanently disabled by a WordPress update….

    Surely there’s a fix in the works?


    I just updated my site to WordPress 5.0 and HATE IT!!! Is there anyway to rollback to previous WordPress version? Please advise


    Please try WP Downgrade I tested it on my localhost and it worked well with downgrading WordPress 5.

    Best regards,


    Hello, since Gutenberg WP 5.0, the Text, Title … Element Preview in Avia Editor has always a black background, I cannot change it, it’s always in black BG, so if my text or title is black I don’t see anything in the preview block : See picture.
    I uploaded Enfold last version, I deleted all cash (wordpress, navigator…), it’s black.


    I solved this problem.
    But I see an other problem, the drag and drop of Avia Elements, from top to bottom of content for exemple, is very difficult since WP5 and when Gutenberg is activated.

    Thank you for the classic editor plugin @mike.
    I regret upgrading. Is there any way to downgrade the version?
