Elementor Error: The Content Area Was Not Found in Your Page

If you’re using Astra theme and Elementor shows a message as below, this article is for you:

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.

Possible Problems and Solutions:

In our experience, below are the things that can cause this error:

Issue with Permalinks:
It is possible that your permalinks structure has problem and need to be refreshed. Refresh Permalinks two three times as suggested in this article and most probably the problem should be resolved.

Trying to edit the blog page:
Dynamic pages (like blog page) can not be edited directly with Elementor. You can only edit the static pages from Elementor. If you need to create dynamic pages and have Elementor Pro, please take a look their documentation.

Conflict with other plugins:
If the solution above does not work, let’s see if it is caused by some plugin installed on website. To check that, temporarily deactivate all plugins (except Elementor of course) and see if this solves the problem. Then activate them back one by one until the problem returns. That way, you can identify if there is some plugin that’s causing the issue.

If none of the solutions above work, try solutions mentioned in the Elementor’s documentation.
