    Hi!
    When working with sections on a page that previously have been published (without Sections), I notice the changes I make with Sections go live even though I haven’t updated the page.

    I used the Preview changes button and did not push the Update button for the page. And yet, when I looked at the page in another browser I see my newly added changes. I would have expected the page not to change until I say “go ahead and update this page”.

    Is there a way to avoid this?

    That doesn’t sound right – could be a bug. I’ll take a look and will let you know.

    Thanks!

    This actually looks like a long-standing WordPress bug which has never been fully fixed: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/20299

    This year we’re hoping to transition from Sections to Gutenberg, which will result in a way better user experience.

    I’ll keep an eye out for a fix to this in the meantime, but I’m not sure it’ll be possible if WordPress themselves haven’t been able to figure it out.

    The WordPress-bug has been there for a while! Six years! I’ve never noticed it before.

    Thanks for taking the time to examine this and for keeping an eye out for a fix.
