Tell us what you are trying to do?
Set up a new front end form for a custom post type. Whenever I have anything in the form editor field it won't let me save (expert or non-expert mode)

Is there any documentation that you are following?

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?



I have tried it in my localhost with a fresh WP installation + the latest version of Toolset plugins.
If use normal mode, I can save the post form with only submit button.
in expert mode, I can save the post form with form editor empty.

So the problem you mentioned above is abnormal, please check these:
1) Make sure you are using the latest version of Toolset plugins, you can download them here:

2) In case it is a compatibility problem, please deactivate all other plugins, and switch to WordPress default theme 2022, deactivate all custom PHP/JS code snippets, and test again

3) Also check if there is any PHP/JS error in your website:


My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
It turns out that despite the popup warning about leaving the page, the page does actually save. That popup threw me off. Thanks for your help.
