Hello all, I am trying to get Upfront working on this site but I cant seem to get it to work. What I did was install the dashboard and install and activate one of the themes. When I hit the upfront button in the admin bar it takes me to the website and the URL indicates its in edit mode. However, no controls for editing the page show and the upfront button is then greyed out in the top admin bar.
