I have made edits to a page (several times). Then I save the page and it looks fine. But when I preview or publish the page it goes back to the way it was before I edited it. I did a Save As and edited that page with identical results. How do I edit the page and get the changes to publish?

tried it. Also had someone pull up the page who hadn't viewed it before. The text is still  wrong.

Why can't you copy the Oct 20th activity, delete it, and move it to the bottom of the list following the Sep15th activity?

I have, several times. I've copied it, I've typed it in fresh and reformatted it. It looks perfect on the screen but when I hit preview or publish it reverts back. Why?????

When you save and publish, the edited page doesn't revert back does it?

Try deleting the October 20th entry > Save > Publish. Exit the program and turn off your computer. Restart your computer > logon to your Homestead page editor and examine the changes. From your browser, launch:
http://lestyn.homestead.com/BallroomDancing-Bridgewater.html and inspect the content.

It's possible that the published page is the page that's linked to your menu. Link the page you're editing to your menu.

When I save and publish, the edited page DOES NOT revert back. The preview page does not show the edits. When I hit publish it does not show the edits. I have saved, published and logged out and back in. When I did the edits disappeared. I will restart as recommended and work on this again in the morning.

I see the same content from the builder that is published. Are you seeing it match?

yes it matches but it is WRONG. Please review this thread before asking any other questions. See the notes above for what the page should read.

Greg3053 I have read the conversation multiple times trying to better understand the problem. I do not see anywhere on the BallroomDancing-Bridgewater page that has "Upcoming Dates"

Can you walk me step-by-step to what is happening?

Todd: The Dates on this page are out of order:
http://lestyn.homestead.com/BallroomDancing-Bridgewater.html?_ga=2.259105994.1323491228.1517586331-1...
Greg3053 is claiming his changes to correct the order are not publishing nor are they saving.
I think it's possible that It's possible that the published page is the page that's linked to your menu and that the page he's editing is a duplicate page. He needs to Link the page he's editing to his menu.

Apparently no one can find out why that page was reverting back. I created a new page and replaced it. It took less time than waiting for someone to figure it out.
