I have a page where I added a Snippet Rendering to a Page in the main placeholder. I created a global datasource for the snippet. I then dragged renderings onto the snippet such as image and rich text and clicked save.

My snippet renderings disappear!

Where are my snippet renderings?

Looking at my data item in the content tree - I can see what I dragged on prior to saving.

enter image description here

Not sure why in Experience Editor I'm not seeing those fields as renderings to edit.

    I've checked this on the current code (the one which will be included in 1.8.1) and it works fine. I would need to confirm this on 1.8 because this is the version you are using, I'm I, right? Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 8:41
  • I've also checked in 1.8 and working as expected Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 9:27
  • Yeah it is 1.8.

    You might want to check your sitecore logs or the console for any errors that might be happening during the save event Commented Jan 17, 2019 at 17:42

Golden rule is save immediately after adding your Snippet. I was trying to add the snippet and then add the renderings inside that snippet before I had clicked Save and so was getting strange behaviour.
