    Thanks in advance for your help

    When I use the default editor, my individual posts show the featured image , then the title in H1 and then the text

    When I use the Advanced Editor, (in this case since I am embedding a youtube video), the featured image is not shown and the title is at the very top, without an H1 tag and runs into the breadcrumb trail

    Here is the example

    Hey candeos!

    That’s the expected behaviour. The layout builder is for users who need complete control over how their post displays. You can add that stuff in manually or switch back to the default editor.



    Elliot, respectfully, your explanation is flawed. There is no shortcode to display the blog posts meta (Author, Tags, Categories, Date Published). Until you add a meta shortcode, the Advanced Layout Editor is worthless for Posts because you cannot make it match the rest of your site’s templates. Please post a solution right away, this is an issue for many developers. It may be that there is a workaround using the Code Block shortcode, but I have wasted many hours trying everything I can think of to no avail…


    Hi Candeos, just wanted you to know you’re not alone, this is a problem for many people and Kriesi always posts the same reply – “use the default editor” – obviously that not a solution for complex, templatable layouts. This is currently the main reason not to use the Enfold theme until this issue is fixed.



    , We are thinking of ways to improve it but for now it must be this way. Think of the users who want to display a post like a page and they do not want the default information to display such as featured image, post meta, etc etc, they want to customize the complete look of the post.

    As for your question about the post meta what you can do is drag a codeblock element to your content and add this inside and change the values to whatever you need.

    <span class="post-meta-infos"><time class="date-container minor-meta updated" itemprop="datePublished" datetime="2014-04-28T19:39:19+00:00">April 28, 2014</time><span class="text-sep text-sep-date">/</span><span class="comment-container minor-meta"><a href="" class="comments-link">0 Comments</a></span><span class="text-sep text-sep-comment">/</span><span class="blog-categories minor-meta">in <a href="" rel="tag">Science</a> </span><span class="text-sep text-sep-cat">/</span><span class="blog-author minor-meta">by <span class="entry-author-link" itemprop="name"><span class="vcard author"><span class="fn"><a href="" title="Posts by Kriesi" rel="author">Kriesi</a></span></span></span></span></span>



    Think of the users who want to display a post like a page

    This is not a valid argument. These users could create a new template or use custom post-types. For the rest of us who use WordPress in the way it was intended, there are no options, because Kriesi’s editor makes the unprecedented move of changing the output of the user coded templates.

    What’s more, you’re holding our clients hostage by not offering a workaround. My only option is to dump Enfold completely and have clients pay for a full redesign.



    Check out the link above, they made us a Meta Information shortcode that, coupled with CSS changes to the Header bar, allows me to simulate my regular post format when using the Advanced Editor. It’s good enough for me to create a template so my clients can easily create posts without the bizarre default behavior.

    This is my CSS:

    #top .fullsize .template-blog .post-title, #top #main > .title_container > div > h1.entry-title > a{ 
    	text-transform: uppercase;
    	font-size: 34px;
    	color: rgb(34,34,34);
    	text-align: center;
        font-size: 30px;
        padding: 15px 0;
        max-width: 800px;
        margin: 0 auto;
    #top #main > .title_container{
    	background: #fff;
    #top #main > div.container_wrap{
    	border: none;
