Editing Joomla articles in front end using SP Page Builder

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Hi,
I just installed the Page Builder Pro 2x.

I am not able to edit any existing Joomla articles in front-end using the Page Builder. I am logged in as admin and get see the default Joomla edit button. It gives me option to edit it using the built in editor, but not the SPPB. The SPPB is integrated with Joomla articles. How do I do this?

Thank you.

Hi Shibbir,
thanks for getting back to me.
I am using Balbooa's "Handmade" template which I customized using their Gridbox Builder.

Thanks,

Gridbox is essentially a premium theme, not a simple page builder. SP PB and Gridbox are very poorly combined on one site and there are so many conflicts between them. If you use Gridbox, then it's better not to use other components to build pages on such a site. SP PB does not work in the core Gridbox template. For it you need to use a separate template from another manufacturer. But even in this case the conflicts in css and js still occur. This is a big drawback of Gridbox.

Not quite @Pavel. The whole point of using the Gridbox is to be able to edit the template, which it does a great job with. The reason why I am using SP Builder is to try to edit existing Joomla articles, which I am having no luck with.

I managed to create SP page and I can edit it front end, despite using Gridbox theme. No conflict. But, I can't edit any Joomla articles (existing or new) on front end using the SP Builder.

Further, SP does not edit Joomla articles front end even if I change template to a simple one that came with Joomla install. So, it has to be something else.

Any other ideas?

Thank you!

This is not possible. Articles can not be edited in the frontend in SP PB generally.
Only SP PB pages can be edited in the frontend.

Hi, You are right. SP Page Builder Joomla article is not editable from the front end. Thanks

Is this still not possible? Is it on the roadmap at all?

This has long been done and possible. Apparently you do not follow the news in joomshaper blog :)

I asked the question because it did not appear possible. I see no front-end "edit page" option on an article. Rather than pointing out that I do not follow your blog, it would have been a little more constructive to provide a link to the blog or to information on how this is achieved?

After digging around further I found this: https://www.joomshaper.com/forums/front-end-editing-a-joomal-article-thats-set-to-sp-pagebuilder?start=0#reply-175528 but it also does not help.

I also followed instructions found here: https://www.joomshaper.com/forums/frontend-editing-in-joomla-article-integration and it is the same as before. There is an icon to edit on the right hand side, but it is not enabled because it is the standard Joomla editor, I think. If, in the browser debugger I remove most content, I am eventually able to click the button and it indeed takes me to the standard Joomla editor. There is no text link to edit the article and shared sessions are enabled. I have ensured that the article is saved with SPPagebuilder selected as the content option. Should I start a new thread about this rather than hijacking an old one?

Sorry. For my part it was not very polite.

I think you better start a new topic to report a problem. It seems the problem is private only with you. Therefore, I would recommend to describe it in more detail using screenshots and links to the site, as well as a detailed description of your actions and configuration of your site and hosting.
