I am using Weaver Xtreme theme with Elementor and Woocommerce. (I inadvertently selected the wrong theme on a previous discussion.) On my shop page I am using the Header Area Replacement options under the Page Builder tab. I have tried both the page drop down and the page id fields to select my “Shop Header” page, but the header is not showing on the shop page. Am I missing something? The page in question is https://replenishhq.abovethecircle.com/shop-2/ Got it to work by setting the replacement header page in the global settings in Customizing>Page Builders, but not in per page options. ???
Also, once I select the page in the global settings the page is no longer editable in Elementor. All the Elementor sections disappear. When I select “none” in the global settings and refresh my shop header page, the sections reappear.February 22, 2020 at 02:24 UTC - Views: 33 #63207WeaverKeymaster
I don’t understand your question at all.
I just reviews all my test pages for using Elementor pages as a global header or footer replacement, or as replacements on a per page basis, and they all work as expected.
When editing an Elementor page that you want to specify another Elementor page as a header/footer replacement, you must Edit the page with the Classic Editor view as the Elementor view does not show the Meta Box with the Options for this Page showing.
To edit one of the header/footer replacement pages, you must open the page from the Pages menu from the dashboard.February 25, 2020 at 19:54 UTC - Views: 35 #63288
I’m so sorry. So hard for me to explain. I’ll try again both in words and pictures.
I created a page called “Shop Header” with Elementor to use as a header replacement on my WooCommerce “Shop” page here: https://replenishhq.abovethecircle.com/shop-2/. If I try to set it as the replacement header from the “Shop” page using the settings under the Page Builders tab, the “Shop Header” page does not show up on the front end of the “Shop” page. The “Shop Header” page will show up only if I set it in the Global settings. That’s not ideal, but not a big issue. But, the issue comes when I set the “Shop Header” page in the global settings. It does work properly as far as the front end. The header shows up on all the pages, including the “shop” page, properly. But after I set it globally I can no longer edit the “Shop Header” page in Elementor. The elements of that page (i.e. the logo and menu I added to the page in Elementor) no longer show up when I try to edit the page with Elementor. My “shop” page is not an elementor page but the “Shop Header” page is. I suppose I’ll just have to remove it from the global settings, edit my “Shop Header” page when needed, then reset it in the global settings.
When I set “Shop” page Page Builder tab to replace header with “Shop Header” Elementor page like this:
I get this on the front end “Shop” page:
and this in the Elementor “Shop Header”:
When I remove the “Shop” per page setting in the Page Builders tab but set the global replacement header here:
I get this on the front end with the header:
and this in the Elementor “Shop Header”:
I hope that clarifies rather than confuses. 😉July 30, 2020 at 17:40 UTC - Views: 18 #64974
Has this been resolved? I have the same issue. When a page created with Elementor is set as Elementor Header Replacement in global settings, the page is no longer editable with Elementor.July 30, 2020 at 18:45 UTC - Views: 15 #64977scramblerModerator
@weaver would have to comment, but he is gone for the week.
When you say “When a page created with Elementor is set as Elementor Header Replacement in global settings, the page is no longer editable with Elementor.”
Doe that means that if you unset the page as “Elementor header replacement” then you can edit the page again.
Have you asked Elementor what could cause the page to not be editable?July 30, 2020 at 18:47 UTC - Views: 12 #64978
Yes, that’s right. And I haven’t tried it with a the footer replacement.July 31, 2020 at 16:15 UTC - Views: 7 #64982scramblerModerator
You definitely need to ask Elementor why that is. They are the only ones knowing how their stuff works, and what could be going on.
Based on their answer, weaver can then see if he needs to do something.August 2, 2020 at 22:19 UTC - Views: 3 #65006WeaverKeymaster
If you are used to viewing a page and then editing it using the Page Edit button (either on the viewed page, or the Edit Page on the admin bar at the top), then you won’t be able to edit it from the page it is viewed on, because the Edit buttons are for the page content, not the Headers, Footers, or sidebars.
If you open the All Pages, it will be there somewhere and editable by Elementor. That’s how it works for me if I put an Elementor page as the Header Replacement – have to edit it from the Page List – and it will then load into the Elementor editor.
