I have followed each step here:
I create a new page thinking I will have a page foundation that I can then edit change parts to make new pages faster. BUT, I cant edit anything because the whole body of the page is template! If I click to edit it, it is making me edit the original template!
I thought the whole purpose of this was to give me a new page with all of the sections etc in place, and that I could edit THAT page… NOT the original template. Am I missing something?

Good morning Susan. I have followed your instructions as far as entering title and content. When I look for the featured image box, it is not to be seen. Here are 4 screenshots, taken as I scrolled down, to show the whole of what I can see.
But wait! I have just noticed a row of tabs near the bottom; when I select Main, and scroll down, then I see a Featured Image item. See capture 5. I don’t know what I should select for the Global setting.
Most of those images are for your Yoast SEO settings and not what we want, however, the first image has shown me that you need to make a couple of tweaks so that the WP editor will show the feature image… so:
- in the top right hand corner, click the vertical 3 dots so that a new editing panel pops out which runs down the right hand side of the screen, see image.
- then click the cog wheel (see 2nd image), again in top right hand side, which will change the panel and you can then see a few rows down the featured image, click that to add a featured image.
once you have done the above once, WP will remember your choices so you won’t need to do it again for the next post.
