My website is at http://www.JazzGuitarLessons.net
Long story short, I’m using Leadpages. I can show leadpages’ landing pages on a “native URL” of my website using their Leadpages WordPress plugin. I use it to get pretty URLs, of course.
This Leadpage: https://jazzguitarlessons.lpages.co/jazz-guitar-improv-101/
Is hosted here: https://www.jazzguitarlessons.net/jazz-guitar-improv-101/
ISSUE: Plugin of conflict between GeneratePress and Leadpages plugin. I believe what’s happening is that “Leadpage” is recognized as custom post type, and GeneratePress is trying to “force” things onto it.
In particular, there’s an option that keeps between reset on every page. Typically overnight. I’ve contacted Leadpages today, their opinion is a conflict of plugin.
Here’s a screenshot of editing a Leadpage from WP dashboard (ie telling which URL it should use, setting cache, etc.), and we see the GeneratePress options from this editor appear on the screen … https://screencast.com/t/Iplvt3lg0Ds
Can we “turn off” the theme for specific content types in WordPress?
Perhaps it’s not the right way to ask the question. Please help! 🙂

You can tell those meta boxes to go away by clicking “Screen Options” at the top right of the page, then un-check the meta boxes you don’t want to show.
In the next version of GP, those meta boxes have been merged into one Layout meta box, so it will be much easier to remove them as needed.
Is that the only issue you’re having? Or is there a conflict on the front end of the site as well?October 12, 2017 at 6:16 am #401869marcandre.seguin
Thanks for the reply.
I saw we can disable those menus, and it’s not at the heart of the issue.
The issue, in a few words it this: there’s an option that keeps getting reset to “NO” while I set it to “YES”. It’s the caching option for the Leadpages.
Naturally, I contacted Leadpages support first. They implied that it’s most likely a plugin conflict, and their first guess was that perhaps the theme I’m using is causing that constant reset of the setting.
It’s not a “big” problem, but kind of annoying. On a given day, I will set all the pages (20+ pages) to “NO” … only to check them the following morning and they’ve all been set to “YES” … as if controlled by some evil magic.
I make extensive use of leadpages for promotions/discounts in my business and it’s crucial that they’re updated instantly on the pretty URLs.
Any ideas?October 12, 2017 at 9:07 am #402043TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Hmm, sometimes plugins blame the theme because a lot of themes are really poorly made. In this case, I can’t see how the theme would cause any sort of conflict in saving plugin options, as none of the theme code runs on their plugin setting pages.
Have you tried deactivating your other plugins to see if it’s a plugin conflict?October 12, 2017 at 9:17 am #402054marcandre.seguin
Thanks for the reply Tom – I haven’t tried duplicating the issues with having other plugins ON or OFF … not yet.
I trust GP is, as you said, well made so that it should not interfere. Thank you again! 🙂October 12, 2017 at 9:36 am #402065TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
No problem! 🙂
