I published my latest post which I uploaded through SiteContent a few days ago.

Last Update: August 07, 2018

...after publishing I went back and edited that post through WP-admin, of course. It went well.

Satisfied, I thought nothing further of it.

The following day, while working on something else on SiteContent, I noticed that the changes that I made earlier on my latest article were not reflected on the SiteContent version of that post.

So I wanted to transfer those changes I made earlier to my post through WP-admin to my post in SiteContent.

I went here, I went there...asked around...wrecked my brain trying to figure this out...

Finally, I received a response from SiteSupport, here is what it said:

“Please note that the changes that you make in the default editor of your WP-admin area will not be reflected in the SiteContent.”

Ok that did make me feel better, because I knew then, it wasn't a case of me not knowing something that I thought I was suppose to know or should have known!

You know what I mean?

But then, that still did not resolve the situation for me...

...SiteSupport's response also referred me to Kyle's “SiteContent – The Complete Walk through” tutorial which I painstainkingly (sorry Kyle it's nothing personal) sat through and listened to, even though it was among the first few tutorials I remember watching when I first came aboard WA.

I figured, I must have missed something when I initially watched the video...(I worked on this all day long trying to figure it out, with a few interruptions here and there)...honestly, I almost dozed off, I was tired, but I was determined to find the answer (I should have taken a break... watched a movie... ordered pizza... had a cookie (a real chocolate chip cookie)...should have gone to Dairy Queen... but I didn't...against my better judgment)..

I did not find the answer in the video...well, not exactly...

I started reading the questions. Then I found a question and while it wasn't exactly my situation, it was close enough...

I continued reading...

Finally, Triblu (Trish) came through, her answer: “...unless you are speaking about editing or updating your post in that case, then my answer is 'no,' as there would be no need for doing that.”

Bingo, I found the answer...of course, now it made sense...no need for doing that because that's why you should always back up your work! (SiteContent and WP-admin are separate and independent of each other, that's another reason too).

Sometimes we can get all hung up on something that we can't see/find the answer even though the answer was there all along!

Next time, I will take a break, I promise!

But wait, the beauty of it all... later that day, I received the notice that my post had been indexed on Google! YES!!

Yes Myrna, I am guilty of the same thing in terms of thinking what I edited in WP-Admin would be reflected in the SiteContent post. I then tried to make the same changes in the SiteContent and it would not take them. Apparently, once we publish that is it. Thanks for sharing.

I am glad you figured it out. Personally, I still write my content directly in WP and don't use SiteContent except for some of the templates and for finding images.
