Our company has a website and has been using (I think) Divi to edit the pages and create posts, when needed. I needed to replace a photo on a page and I changed from Divi (I think) to Managed WordPress. I think that I made a major boo boo. Can someone help?
Divi is a very popular theme and page builder (and one we recommend), so it’s no surprise your company chose it for their website.
There may be a little confusion here with terminology.
“Managed WordPress” actually refers to a particular type of hosting. Your WordPress site must be hosted on a web server in order to work. These days, many hosts offer “Managed” hosting, which means they take care of updates, backups, and security for you. We recommend a number of Managed WordPress hosts.
But Managed WordPress hosting has nothing to do with how you edit content in your site — like replacing a photo on a page.
It sounds like you may have inadvertently opened the page in the default WordPress Block Editor, instead of editing the page in Divi. That could result in problems when you republish the page with your edits.
If you have a backup solution, now would be a great time to restore your site from the most recent backup, essentially undoing your changes.
If not, you’ll need to rebuild the page, this time in Divi. It will be a manual process, but sadly, there is no automated “undo” function for restoring Divi content after it’s been converted into WordPress Blocks.
This is one of the complaints we hear the most about ALL of the page builders. Once you’ve committed to a particular page builder, you’re stuck. There is no auto-conversion from one to another. And if you ever decide that you want to use the default WordPress Block Editor, you’ll have to rebuild any pages you created in the page builder.
Hopefully, someone will take the lead in this area and create a smart tool to convert content from a page builder to the default WordPress experience, or vice versa.
I hope this helps, but if you have any further questions, please feel free to follow up anytime!
