Recently our sites that use GeneratePress Pro + Elementor have started displaying the Elementor content as a Gutenberg “classic” block in the standard editor.
The page is working fine, but this never happened before and it’s concerning that there is some kind of bug.
For example, I create a page with no content. I design the page and add content in Elementor. I then go to edit the page using the standard WP editor (to add featured images, Yoast settings etc.) but in there is now also a single Gutenberg block containing all of the content from the Elementor edit.
I can delete the Gutenberg block and still edit the page in Elementor. No content is lost. Yet, when I return to the normal page editor the Gutenberg block reappears…
Is this a known bug, or have I misconfigured something??

I’m still waiting back from them. Has this not been reported elsewhere? It’s happening with most of our sites and they are pretty much standard GeneratePress + Elementor installs, nothing special. Pro versions of both.
I realise this might be an Elementor issue, but as the block is appearing in a standard page edit, I thought it might be a GP issue?

Haven’t received any reports on this yet.

Most of that is handled by WordPress’ default editor.
What if you activate a WordPress default twenty series theme? Does the same thing happen?
Let me know 🙂July 22, 2019 at 1:27 pm #964480Steven
To be honest I’m reluctant to try that on this production site. It started happening after recent updates to Elementor and GP. WordPress 5.2.2 has been on there for a while when this issue wasn’t present, and no new have been plugins installed (only existing updated).
So I can only slummiest so far that it’s either GP or Elementor, but yes it might be another plugin that’s updated..July 22, 2019 at 1:42 pm #964492LeoStaffCustomer Support
That would help us identify where the issue is coming from for sure.
You won’t lose any of your customizations by switching a theme 🙂
I understand if you don’t want to switch. We can wait for Elementor to reply first.July 22, 2019 at 1:49 pm #964494Steven
Yes, I’ll let you k ow as soon as they respond. And sorry for the odd spelling, predictive text on my tablet. Slummiest was meant to be surmise…July 23, 2019 at 3:55 am #964843Steven
Update – I have just received this from Elementor support:
Thank you for contacting us.
We are aware of this issue. Our developers are working on this issue already.
Although I am unable to provide you with an ETA as to when this fix will be released.
So, it would seem it’s an Elementor bug and they’re aware/working on it – think it’s fair to mark this as fixed from a GP perspective.
Thanks for the help.
