I watched the videos on how to add a post meta block, checked to make sure everything was installed, and then ran into a wall. I’m attaching two screenshots. The first is from the GP video on how to do this, and the second is from my screen.
You’ll see that my right hand sidebar does not look like the right hand sidebar in the video. After clearing caches, etc etc, the problem persists.
At this point I’m wondering about two possible points where this is breaking down:
1. I own a copy of GeneratePress, but am using the free version of GenerateBlocks. Is it not possible to create a custom meta box without the GenerateBlocks Pro version?
2. I have two GP plugins activated (GP Pro, GP Blocks). Am I missing one called GP Dynamic Content ?
I am really looking forward to being able to create a custom post meta box, but at this point I’m pretty confused. Any direction would be much appreciated.
The site I’m building isn’t live yet and definitely not ready for prime time, but in case this will help: sara donati fictionSeptember 14, 2021 at 4:56 pm #1930744Rosina
Of course I forgot the screenshots.

I do have the classic editor plugin activated. I’ll turn it off and see what happens. And let you know. Thanks for the quick response.September 14, 2021 at 5:37 pm #1930764LeoStaffCustomer SupportSeptember 14, 2021 at 5:39 pm #1930765Rosina
Yes, it is working. Now if I could just get the bits into the meta box…September 14, 2021 at 6:07 pm #1930767LeoStaffCustomer SupportSeptember 14, 2021 at 6:15 pm #1930772Rosina
Yes, I can explain.
I’m in the generate block pages. Trying to put together a post meta box for a custom page type (wiki article). Attaching link to what I’m trying to achieve.
It’s very difficult to add elements to the container when you have a combination of text and elements. For some reason adding categories seems to work, but adding tags does not. And I can’t get the box to show up on any wiki pages at all. I am wondering if there might be more meta box templates somewhere.September 15, 2021 at 10:40 am #1931751LeoStaffCustomer Support
Hmm you should be able to create that metabox with dynamic properties no problem.
Can you take a look at this article to make sure you are doing everything correctly?
Here is a video that might help as well:

I’m not sure if that display rule location is for wiki static pages or for “Wiki” post type.
The link you’ve provided seems to be a post type but the display rule seems to be pointing to static pages.
Any chance you can let us have temporary back end access to understand the CPT and taxonomy relationships on your site?
You can use the private information text field to provide the details. 😀

I’ve set up a temporary admin account for you, see below.September 17, 2021 at 9:46 am #1933947YingStaffCustomer Support
Can you share the WP login link as well?
/wp-adminboth don’t work.
Let me know 🙂September 17, 2021 at 10:36 am #1934015Rosina

This is complicated, so let me take it step by step.
When I installed and activated the GP theme, there were security guidelines on the dashboard. One of them was the importance of changing the log-in url. I followed the directions and changed the login url to “https://saradonati.com/wiki/morestuff.php” . It struck me as odd that this would end up as a php file. Now just a few days ago I realized that if I went to that url, I got a 404 page. I also tried accessing through the standard /admin and /wp-admin urls, and again I got 404 errors.
to fix this I tried to backtrack, but I cannot pinpoint where I saw that security suggestion.
Since that point I continue to not be able to login in the usual manner. I have to go to my web host and log in through them, and that works fine. So I put this 404 redirect problem aside for the moment. Not the brightest move.
Then I asked for help with the post-meta element, and supplied login information. It wasn’t until you wrote back that I realized that there isn’t a way to log-in except going through my web host user tools. So I have put out some questions on how to fix this problem, but haven’t heard anything back yet.
Can you tell me how to reinstate a normal log-in link/page?
If you cannot, I’ll hope to get some help elsewhere. As soon as this issue is resolved I’ll send you the url for logging in.
Sorry for the long explanation.
