Elementor edit screen shows code text

I am trying to edit a page with Elementor. When I open the homepage with Elementor it all comes up in code text. Please advice.

    Hi Moshe,

    I had a look at your site and there doesn't seem anything to be "wrong" there, what you're seeing in Elementor editor is actually shortcodes that were added by Visual Composer.
    I'm guessing that the page was previously built by Visual Composer and when you add element via Visual Composer editor it will create a page structure with its own shortcodes.
    Those shortcodes are not something Elementor can render so it will show just the code from those shortcodes.

    If you wish to make a switch to Elementor you will probably need to rebuild your home page in order to use Elementor blocks instead of Visual Composer ones.
    Or you can use Visual Composer editor to edit that page.
    Either way, I would suggest sticking only to one page builder because they can be a bit heave on the resources and using two page builders on site will cause further confusion and possible errors between the two.

    Best regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.
