So, what's the fix for this? It's October 10, 2021 and this is happening to my fresh install of Joomla4, and JomSocial4. I have a trouble ticket put in for this. While, I'm glad I'm not the only one that found this issue, it doesn't solve it knowing there are others. I also notice a fix has not been suggested to these old requests on this thread.
It is ALL the templates doing this. I've tried Flix, T4's SB5 Blank, and Cassiopeia. I also paid Joomlart people to install the Flix template for me, because I thought it was me doing something wrong during the install.
It's hit and miss with the layout editor, and once you create a layout, it will default to the original template layout, leaving you with no way to edit the layout that did get saved. If you made 3 columns in your layout, and that's what's showing on the live site, too bad. The layout will default back to 1 column, leaving you with no way to put anything in those columns, or change the colors, or the names.
Also, the color pallette is screwed up. If I apply a color to the topbar, I see it in the live view as correct; however, as soon as I save it, it defaults back to original color.
If I add my logo, as soon as I save it, it defaults to the Flix logo and removes mine.
Poof! All that work you did editing is gone. I watched the tutorial video on this, and the guy was adding rows, sections, columns, and all kinds of things but that's not what's happening for me!
