[Fixed] Sorry the content area was not found in your page elementor

I understand you are encountering the “Sorry the content area was not found in your page” error in Elementor on your WordPress site. This can be frustrating, but it’s a common issue with a few potential solutions. Here are some steps you can try:

Basic Solutions

First of all, try to activate debug mode from your wp-config.php file by inserting this code in the wp-config.php file from your root folder.

define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );

By adding this code you can see any error in the front end if it is coming from any code. Here are some other common solutions for this:

  1. Clear Cache: Start by clearing your browser cache and server cache (if you have access). Sometimes outdated cached data can interfere with proper rendering.
  2. Deactivate Plugins: Temporarily deactivate all plugins except Elementor and Elementor Pro. If the error disappears, reactivate your plugins one by one to identify the culprit.
  3. Switch Theme: Briefly switch to a default theme like “Hello Elementor” to see if the error persists. If it disappears, your current theme might be incompatible with Elementor.
  4. Check Permalinks: Go to Settings > Permalinks and try resetting your permalink structure (e.g., from Post Name to Plain). Save changes and reload your page.

Advanced Solutions

  1. Add the_content Function: If the error persists on specific pages, it might be due to a missing the_content function in your theme’s page template. This function tells Elementor where to inject your content. Editing theme files requires caution, so proceed only if comfortable with the code. You can find instructions specific to your theme online.
  2. Theme/Plugin Conflicts: If you’re using a custom theme or page template, ensure it’s fully compatible with Elementor. Consult your theme’s documentation or seek support from the developer.

Remember, editing theme files involves risks. Back up your website before making any changes.

I hope this helps!
