Editing articles (Front or Backend) save first time but revert back if re edited.

Post by CosmicGlenn » Sat Jan 15, 2022 4:45 am

Hi folks
Me and my site members are having a strange problem. If i or anyone edits an article (Front or Backend) on my site and save it , it will save and you can see the changes, BUT if we edit a second time , upon opening to edit it will revert back, as if it was never edited the first time.

HELP.

Check the selection from Global Configuration - Site Settings - Default Editor.

Users may also be assigned an editor individually in the tab Basic Settings.
