Creating a New Post in Upfront - Spirit

I have tried to create new posts and edit posts in the Upfront theme and it is not working as it is displayed in the tutorial (Step 7).

When creating a new post, it does not allow me to edit the headline or the text and the experience is nothing like the demo outlined. Happens with a brand new post or when trying to edit the post - either way - does not work as outlined. To edit the post, I have to go into the standard WordPress edit post mode.

I am really frustrated with this product. I have had many issues and it seems every time I try to deploy anything - I run into a error. I really want to use this to continue growing my business. Please help.
