Adding modules is turned off in this post's template

For all of the page templates I have created, including drag and drop templates and those I have converted to HTML for customization, when I try to create a page using those templates, the "Add" tab, which should allow me to add modules to the page, is always disabled. Hovering over the tab produces this hint: "Adding modules is turned off in this post's template."

 

So...what do I need to do to enable the adding of modules to pages created using my templates? Is there some specific module I need to add to the template itself? Some setting somewhere that I have been unable to find?

 

Apologies if this is a basic question, but I have searched high and low for an answer without success.

You are using Drag and drop template so need put this code into the your html file

It will create a drag and drop area into edit mode.

 

{% dnd_area "body_dnd_area" %}{% end_dnd_area %}

 

 

Let me know if you have any query.

you need to add a flexible column that will let you add new modules inside of it

Thank you so much. This was indeed the best solution. It makes it clear and obvious where the modules go when creating a page based on the template . While adding the flexible column also provides an area into which modiules can be dropped, it gives no visual clue when creating the page that it's even there.

 

Makes me wonder why this isn't the first thing you'd see in the help docs.

Hello,

I was just facing the same problem with my template, so I found this helpful thread! 

In my case it is about a template for a marketing landingpage, which I've added via marketplace.  Regarding adding 

{% dnd_area "body_dnd_area" %}{% end_dnd_area %}

I was just unsure where to add it in the Design manager for this template - so in some HubL section? Or should it be added within the related Landingpage in edit mode via some HTML module?

Thank you in advanced for your reply!

Best regards,

Constantin

How does one accomplish this when creating a template in Drag and Drop mode?
