front page content no longer shows up in edit

    I’m working on this site:

    https://www.esc.org/

    And trying to edit the sidebar called ‘Upcoming Courses’. However, I cannot find that sidebar on any of the pages. The Front Page (which would be my best guess at where this sidebar is) only displays the block of text called ‘The ESC Mission’.

    Where can I find the code for the sidebar called ‘Upcoming Courses’? Any help would be appreciated.

    The blog I need help with is msandbox.wordpress.com.

    I’ve figured out the issue.

    The WordPress site I’m working on (https://www.esc.org/) uses the Carrington theme. For whatever reason, upgrading WP to the new Gutenberg editor ignores most of the content on the front page while editing. Switching back to the Classic editor allows you to edit the entire front page once again.

    I’m building a new theme for the site, so hopefully Gutenberg won’t be an issue, but it does set a worrying precedent where older themes may not be compatible with the editor.
