Sorry, David, I seem to be breaking your stuff left right and centre. 🙇‍♀️

I've been using Post Kinds plug to post replies to other websites, but then last night when I clicked on "reply" in Kinds, the usual URL bar (for pasting in the article URL I'm replying to) doesn't show up.

I thought it was because of one of the plugins I've installed, so I restored my WP back to an instance when the URL bar was showing. After the restore, Post Kinds starts working again, but after posting a couple of posts (without adding any new plugins) the URL bar stops showing again.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

That is odd. I'm not sure why it would work then stop. It does hide the URL setting when it is set to note. I wonder...what happens if you click some other kind, then back?

The only one that does anything is when I click onto "Article" (the title moves to the top of the page), and anything else (the title moves to the bottom).

Interesting. The hiding of the URL box is done by JavaScript, as is the moving of the title.

What is the URL for the site, out of curiosity?

that's strange, I tried loading the site and it showed the directory as you said, I loaded it again and it's showing my site...

try https://www.serenawho.com/?

I should perhaps post an update - I reinstalled my WP from scratch and it all works now. Still not sure what caused it, but I'll keep an eye out for if it happens again.

I’ve seen some issues similar to this, but haven’t been able to figure out what the root cause may be. It began in the version of Post Kinds just after you updated the Response Properties Meta box moving based on the post kind being chosen.

In general, the problem seems to be that the Response Properties checkbox in the Screen Options (in the top right hand corner of the admin UI) doesn’t seem to remember its prior state. Thus I’ve needed to occasionally open the screen options and recheck the Response Properties box to see its meta box.

I’ve played around with it a bit, but can’t always reliably recreate the issue. It does seem to be happening less frequently now compared to when I originally upgraded. Is it possible that the checkbox state is only saved per kind?

I may add a setting to disable the hiding for debugging

@chrisaldrich thanks for that tip about the Screen Options - this issue popped up on me for another site I have and this tip really saved me!

I still can't figure out why this sometimes comes unset
