Tagged: wordpress update 5.4 editor
April 1, 2020 at 10:04 am #1199680
Hi and good morning Kriesi Team,
i just upgraded our dev domain to wordpress 5.4.
Now editing pages “editor” looks quite funky and the screen always contains the default and the advanced editor. Top-Bar for wordpress menus is also missing.
I am happy to create a login for you, so you can investigate. I think this will happen to a lot of users.
A possible reason are the extensive modifications to the editor in wordpress 5.4 i guess.

Thanks for contacting us!
Could you please go to Enfold theme options and choose to use WP Classic editor – https://imgur.com/a/6Oy3Ijk and check if that helps? If it does not, please create temporary admin logins and post them here privately :)

Are there any downsides by using the classical editor?

The problem persists after modifying the editor option. The new editor keeps coming out and if we add the “Classic Editor” plugin, the ENFOLD editor appears but some components don’t work, like icons, …
Please some solutionApril 1, 2020 at 3:46 pm #1199790April 1, 2020 at 3:47 pm #1199791April 1, 2020 at 4:16 pm #1199796
I too can confirm the same problem with last Enfold version 4.7.4 + WP 5.4.
Everything still works, it just looks a bit funky.
Unfortunately using the classic editor isn’t practical as I use the Gutenberg blocks for structured blog posts. ;)April 1, 2020 at 5:45 pm #1199819April 1, 2020 at 6:42 pm #1199829April 1, 2020 at 6:49 pm #1199830
Yes. Problem also here. And: Section below can’t move upwards. It’s hanging at larger pages.
As Result: Pages can’t modify. Work is stopped for all.April 1, 2020 at 6:50 pm #1199831
Same problem here.
Switching to classic editor worked for me.

I am also having the same problem. The Advanced Layout Editor button is visible, but does not work. Please help.April 1, 2020 at 7:01 pm #1199839
Switching to the classic editor helped. I guess that the system automatically forced the block editor.April 1, 2020 at 7:07 pm #1199842
excuse me: What helped you @rmatus? Can you describe it please?
If i switch between options, nothing is changed as result.April 1, 2020 at 7:16 pm #1199844
I could reproduce the issue on my installation and reported to our devs.
WP 5.4 seems to break Advanced Layout Builder when using Block editor however Classic editor is working fine.
We are going to try to fix it as soon as possible.
In the meantime, please go to Enfold theme options and choose to use “WP Classic editor” – https://imgur.com/a/6Oy3Ijk.
If you have to use Block editor, please consider downgrading WordPress to previous version 5.3.2. You can use a plugin such as this one – https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-downgrade/

Yes, I did exactly what it said to do in https://imgur.com/a/6Oy3Ijk.
I went to Enfold –> Theme Options, which is the top/default choice in the theme. I scrolled down to SELECT YOUR EDITOR. I saw that the default editor was changed to “Use Block Editor.” I changed it back to USE WP CLASSIC EDITOR.
It is working for me now.
Good luck.April 1, 2020 at 8:07 pm #1199863
@rmatus Thanks for sharing!
Advanced Layout Builder is visible below fullscreen visual editor.

@yigit I am glad to contribute a small part to help the community that has helped me so much over the years. Thank you for your efforts.April 1, 2020 at 8:24 pm #1199868
Nothing works for me. I tried to reinstall the old WordPress version but the buttons still not working…
I am waiting for a FIX. If I click on a button to customize it, it does not load.
There is also the error: Deprecated: contextual_help is deprecated since version 3.3.0! Use get_current_screen()->add_help_tab(), get_current_screen()->remove_help_tab() instead. in /home/customer/www/—-URL—-/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 5088

Guys do this…
I had the same issue…. My ALB disappeared on all my pages.
But i chose the Classic WP Editor in the Enfold theme options and the ALB came back.
No need to downgrade the WP.

WP 5.4, Enfold 4.6.2: I tried to update page or article title with ALB on: the changes were not saved, the old title appeared again. While moving to standard editor, editing the title, saving and moving back to ALB the new title was saved, the ALB content reappeared.
But this is not a solution.April 2, 2020 at 10:25 am #1200081
Please open a new thread and include WordPress admin login details in private so that we can have a closer look at your site.

Did you activate the Classic Editor in the main page of the theme options? If that doesn’t help then please open a new thread and include WordPress admin login details in private so that we can have a closer look at your site.

thank you, it works, BUT: There are no more Gutenberg Blocks available. So is this a decision between Gutenberg and ALB?
SusannaApril 2, 2020 at 11:21 am #1200105April 2, 2020 at 11:22 am #1200106
I have installed the plugin “Classic Editor Addon” and it seems that some components of the ENFOLD editor work (text, photos, …) but others do not (buttons, comments, …)
At least with this we can edit the pages in a simple way while ‘kriesi’ give us a solution.
Good luck to everyone.
