I’m looking to somewhat ween myself off my page builder, Visual Composer, and I’d like to start using sections. However, when I start a new blog post and activate sections it takes over the page content and gets rid of the blog title and the date that is there by default. I’m not using the “disable elements” in the layout area on the blog backend to remove those items. And I’ve checked the customizer “layout>blog” to ensure that’s set right too. It works fine with a visual composer designed page and a page without visual composer and no sections. But sections would be so nice to use 🙂
Happens when the section is set to contained or full width.
Also happens on pages as well (removes the title, date is not an issue as it’s a page)
Thanks for any help you can provide.

Sections are designed that way and remove the entry content etc. I don’t think Tom designed them with Posts in mind but as a lightweight Page Builder.
A simple workaround is to use a Header Element which can be dynamically populated with the title etc.

Thanks, I’ll look into that for sure.September 7, 2018 at 5:25 am #671083DavidStaffCustomer SupportSeptember 7, 2018 at 9:50 am #671311Brent
“Elements” was the one item I hadn’t activated yet 🙂
This is a decent work around and it gives good flexibility as well. Though my “merging” didn’t work like the video example on that link you gave. All content from the blog post got sucked up under the header and the element item I created. So I abandoned that idea.September 7, 2018 at 9:59 am #671312DavidStaffCustomer SupportSeptember 9, 2018 at 9:25 am #672612Brent
Thanks, I tried that, maybe I just didn’t do it enough.September 9, 2018 at 12:11 pm #672705
