I have a scenario where the
Add Here button is not visible for the
placeholder I want to add a component to. I have to select other content in the placeholder and use the
Go to parent component button to navigate back up to my placeholder. At that point, the appropriate
Add Here button is visible and I can add a component.
Two notes I think are important, the existing visible items in the placeholder are all at least grandchild descendants of the placeholder in question (they are within other nested placeholders). Also, if I do add a component to the placeholder (a direct child of my placeholder) I at least get an
Add Here button directly above the added component but not between any of the other components that make up the nested placeholders.
An image might help explain this better:
A: The placeholder I want to add a component too but essentially, I can't select this placeholder - no
Add Here button shows up.
B: Component that is already within the placeholder. It has a placeholder of its own, D.
C. Component that is already within the placeholder. It has a placeholder of its own, E.
To add another component to A, I have to select content in D or E and use the
Go to parent component button to navigate back to A. At that point, the
Add Here button shows up and I can add a component to A.
What experience editor magic can I do to get the
Add Here button show up in placeholder A (instead of only placeholders D and E) when the add component button is clicked in the ribbon?
