I have created a Page template in the Appearance > Editor after creating a Header template part. In this Page template, I set up columns, image placeholders, text and headline placeholders, page title, etc. It was easy to create and looked fine.
I was also editing
theme.json all along the way. I never used the Global Settings capability in the actual editor, but did tweak spacing using the Dimension tools, etc.
The Issue: The content I created on a new page appears with the new template on the client side as I expected, but it does not appear in the site editor when editing the page.
I was under the impression that full-site-editing meant I could populate, style, and edit a page right in a "shell" of the Page template I created, 100% wysiwyg. Instead, all I see is raw text and images—no columns, header, etc., and nothing from the template. Note: the fonts and sizes set in
theme.json are showing up fine.
So, is what I'm asking possible or am I not understanding FSE and templates?
