Bricks Version: 1.4
I thought that containers could not be saved as global elements (it seemed so when I tested it before, maybe 1.4RC2).
It seems it is possible now, but when I do it, the recalled element is always an empty container
The original container transformed into global on the origin page is OK though.
Thanks so much for your report!
I was able to reproduce the issue and added it to our bug tracker.
After consulting with Thomas I learned that we both obviously have wrong expectations
When you save an element as a global element you save the selected element only.
Its children are not saved as those are different elements.
If a container contains other elements, and you’d like to save all of them, you have to save it as a template, not a global element. So this is not a bug
OK got it!
Maybe some warning at save time could help?
Or an additional note here:
It took me a while to find this topic. I spent a long time trying to figure out what I was doing wrong.
The video below ends up confusing a lot, because the layout on the screen shows a container with several images inside. I thought I would be able to save a section and all child elements.
No, the video shows the image gallery element, which is a single element
It would be wonderful to have the Reusable function in Bricks Builder. It is very useful in Oxygen Builder.
