    I was using Directory Press 8.3 till now but today I upgraded it to Directory Press 8.7. After upgrading, I am not seeing homepage layout manager that was available in 8.3 in new 8.7 version. I am referring to section where admin can customize home page layout by adding slider, 2/3/4 column text display etc. component.

    Am I missing something here or this option is not available in 8.7? Please help. I have attached screenshot for 8.3 and 8.7 both.

    Hi Josh,

    If you can check my screen shot in main post, that option itself is missing. There is no option to enable Home Page Editor.

    I checked Admin Demo of DP in Premiumpress website, I see Home Page Editor option but I am not getting it. Check attached screenshot from demo DP.

    Hi Mark,

    I am not using any child theme. It would be better if you can provide some fix for this. Can’t raise a ticket right now and give you control since I am testing 8.7 in my local environment first. I want to make sure everything works out fine before I activate 8.7 for my site on live environment.

    @ Josh – I copied my entire wordpress setup and created new installation on live environment for testing. After that I tried updated 8.7 again. But still same problem. Not getting option to edit homepage.

    I have submitted ticket. Please look into that at the earliest.
