I tried everything covered in the links and some more things after a long search in the web, including changes of zlib and gzip compression settings, deactivating all plugins (did not change anything when all plugins were uninstalled), updating to PHP 7, reinstalling WP 4.6, deleting the second button again, and a lot more. Problem is still here.
The interesting part is - I have a multisite installation and my other themes work fine with live editor, same configuration except the theme. Even so the Single Pages of Astrid show me the live editor as it should be. Only the start page remains blank. I see on the left side the live editor and I can make changes, except the “Widget” Section which is empty, but I do not see the page itself.
I am wondering if some of the following things might have an influence on Astrid Start Page?
- I had Intro installed before including the recommended plugins like “Types”. Could there be any interferences? Types and Wordpress Importer and the other plugins are deactivated.
- The failure
wp_get_sites is deprecated since version 4.6.0! Use get_sites() instead. is shown under Yoast Plugin, but only in the backend of multisite home directory not in the websites itself. Even though I do not have Yoast activated for the new site and I won’t do it. I activated it shortly to check if the live editor works with it enabled. It did not.
It would not be a really big issue to me and my workflow, if the button to style the widget sections directly in the backend has not been deleted with one of the last updates. Can I get it back somehow if we can not find a solution for the live editor?
Have a nice day nevertheless. And thanks once again.
BTW: I let the site live for you as long as this topic is not solved.
