How can I track down why I can't change layout positions? It's happening even with the Gantry template supplied with Gantry itself.

you're using gantry4? what do you mean by changing layout positions? gantry4 has fixed positions, you can just control groups, like feature-a, feature-b, feature-c
gantry5 has fully dynamic positions

I haven't looked at 5 yet, but will do soon.
Looking at the "layouts page I should be able to change the number of positions per line (eg Main Content), and vary the relative sizes of them, but it doesn't work at all. On the page I can change the number of positions, but when I save it and re-open it, it's exactly the way it was before I changed it
"layouts" :worried:
I'm guessing it's something I've done, or got, wrong, but what, and where?

@MarkRS-UK it’s working fine, all of the layout settings are saved at the same time, just the active layout isn’t selected
ie. change the value for 5 columns
hit save
when you refresh it will switch back to ie. 2
but when you click 5 again
you will see that your setup is saved
all stuff is being saved but the selected column number doesn’t reflect current setup
that’s it

@newkind, so how do I make it reflect the current setup? I'm trying to change the main content so it's single sidebars either side of the main area. I agree with with you've said, when I switch it back in the admin panel my changes appear, but the front end isn't working like that, which makes it all rather unhelpful...

@MarkRS-UK the admin won’t ever reflect the widget setup in the front end as we don’t have a way to check it
the way front end works
is it gets how many gantry divider widgets you have in your widget position
and displays the layout according to that
as every gantry divider = new column
so if you have let’s say
4 widgets with 3 gantry divider widgets between them
this means 4 column
and gantry will load the setup for 4 columns
