Easy Blogging conflict with page quick edit.

Have had a problem with quick edit in the pages. Basically I lose the options to change order, choose the template and to allow comments.

It became an issue for me as quick edit is the only place I know where you can set the option to disallow comments on pages. Turns out it is the easy blogging plug-in as when I disable it the above fields all return.

Not after a solution as I am happy to remove the easy blogging plug-in but thought I would report in case anyone else has a problem or you get the same issue on your test rigs.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    Can I ask for a little more detail about the set up you have please so we can troubleshoot?
    - what version of WordPress are you using?
    - what version of Easy Blogging?
    - do you have any other plugins installed, what are they?
    - what theme are you using?
    - are you using Multisite?

    When I was troubleshooting I disabled in groups and narrowed it down then got the full quick edit menu back when easy blogging plug-in was disabled.

    Following your suggestion I have deactivated all the plug-ins in the network manager option and with only easy-blogging activated the same problem has occurred.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
