    Hi!

    First of all love the plugin!

    I’m currently working on a website that has most of its headers and footers created using your awesome plugin.

    Now I have to create a header and footer for a custom post type and couldn’t for the life of me find an option to select a post from the custom post type to preview its custom fields in the builder. Like I can with Elementor Pro Theme Builder using “Preview Settings”.

    I’ve tried to create a header with Elementor Pro Theme Builder but I’m getting the following error:

    Sorry, the content area was not found in your page.
    You must call ‘the_content’ function in the current template, in order for Elementor to work on this page.

    Is this a bug or we can’t use Elementor Header & Footer Builder in tandem with Elementor Pro Theme Builder for headers and footers?

    Thank you!

    Hi @fahimmurshed,

    I’m unable to create a header template in Elementor Pro’s theme builder when “Elementor Header & Footer Builder” plugin is active.

    Templates > Theme Builder > Header > Add New

    When clicking on “Add New” the Elementor page builder shows up but stops loading and displays this error:

    Sorry, the content area was not found in your page.
    You must call ‘the_content’ function in the current template, in order for Elementor to work on this page.

    As soon as I deactivate “Elementor Header & Footer Builder”, it starts working.

    @zs24 If you have Elementor Pro, you don’t really need the Header and Footer plugin, but a work around is to disable the plugin, switch templates temporarily. Add your header and footer (you won’t see the same error in a new template that hasn’t been affected by the plugin), then switch the template back to the original.

    You are right, @ksiuda.

    Hello @zs24, if you have Elementor Pro, I would highly suggest using their awesome feature. They have a documentation/article for you that will assist you in better understanding it. Here’s the link https://elementor.com/blog/header-footer-builder/. Also, watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srySG7Dc3MY.

    Have a wonderful day ahead of you.
