    Try using the CTRL key on the right side of your keyboard.

    All properties (like the titles and texts) you configure in the widgets of a particular post in the front-end editor are stored as "post meta" (a.k.a. "custom fields") of that post using the default functions that WP provides (more info here; https://codex.wordpress.org/Custom_Fields). You can access the data in various ways; for example by copying and pasting it from the browser directly, or by copying and pasting the information from the front-end editor, or programatically by using the functions that WP provides.

    Our front-end editor does not store its content in the normal backend area. The front-end editor would not work and we opted not to use shortcodes since these can very easily corrupt your content. You can either use the classic WordPress way of creating content, or use our theme's front-end functionality. It's up to you.

    You can temporarily disable the rendering a row on your site, by specifying "false" in the "enabled" property of the row. You can access the row properties by hovering over a row with your cursor. And clicking the arrow pointing to the right that pops up in the top right corner of the row you're hovering over. Please note this functionality is only available when we host the site.

    We understand that accidents happen. This includes changing and configuring the theme to a certain state you're not happy with, while at the same time not knowing how to change the configuration to reflect an earlier state. Although it would be incredibly helpfull to have a sort of "undo" option, please understan you're not working in a Microsoft Word document, but on a live website.

    The way we've set up our themes is that changes are immediately pushed to your server and visible to the outside world. The main benefit being that you don't constantly have to save your work with the risk of forgetting and losing what you've changed. The downside is that changes are instant are permanent.

    If you've purchased a "theme and hosting" package you always have the option to manually backup your site and revert to earlier instances by restoring a backup. If you do not host with us it might be that you or your hosting provider has the same kind of failsafe mechanism in place. If not, unfortunately we are unable to help you retrieve the earlier configuration.

    You will need administrator privileges for the front-end editor to load.

    ​This can be done by creating a new user and giving them Administrator status in your WordPress dashboard, The option for adding a new user is in the "Users" menu and then choosing the "Add New" option. ​An Administrator account will have the rights to use the editor.

    ​If you edit the content using the WordPress backend, the versioning applies, as that a WordPress feature. The front-end editor that we build on top of WordPress does not have a versioning mechanism in place. We would like to build one, but there's also many other features we and other people would like us to build (its on our todo list, but with a relative low prio compared to other features). If you like to track changes on your site with respect to the front-end editor content, we advise to make daily backups of the site.

    all our themes are kept up to date to be compatible with the latest version of WordPress. We are constantly improving our themes and our changelog is publicly available here: http://nexusthemes.com/changelog/
