Header & Footer inherited from a template gone when switching by Context Switching

Developer Status: Investigating

Summary

Header & Footer inherited from a template gone when switching by Context Switching

Description

Hi MaxHea, I just bought and installed EE4.0. Context Switching enabled. When I started editing say page 1 and switched to page 2 using this feature, the header and footer from my main template just disappeared (these pages inherit design from that template). Only the inner content showed. If I switch back to page 1 they don't show back up either. In other words, once you start switching to other pages using the Context Switching, the stuff inherited from a template is gone. I bought EE4.0 just for this feature because it could help me to save time but it looks like it need some improvement to work properly. Or is it anything on my setting that needs to be done first to make it work? Can you help me Max? Best regards, Acon

Switch to page 2 in the editor using Context Switching (header & footer gone!) 5. Switch back to page 1 (header & footer still gone!)

  1. I can confirm that this issue happens for me too.

    To add further detail to the issue, I have noticed that the issue does not happen when the page template is explicitly set to the same template on all the pages that you want to switch to. So for example, if you have a template, Main, and you set Page 1 and Page 2 to use Main as the template, then the context switching works as expected, provided that the first page that you open in Oxygen uses Main as the template.

    However, if Main is the default template and Page 1 and Page 2 use Default, the context switching does not work. Nor does it work if the context switch is between pages with different templates. In these cases, the header and footer are not displayed and the Inner Content section in the Structure is replaced with Body.
