Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Block Content Warning Message

  • Resolved cheister


    I am currently checking out Gutenberg for its capabilities for longform articles and it looks pretty good so far. I am getting this error message in the sample post content, when opened in Gutenberg and I donĀ“t know what to do to get rid of it

    “This block has been modified externally and has been locked to protect against content loss.”

    Any suggestions?

    Many thanks,

    Hi @cheister, I would like to know a little more about what you are doing to get this message. For example, what editor are you using? Could you give me the exact steps?

    Thanks for checking out Gutenberg.

    Seems to be a bug!

    Create content with Gutenberg, save and then exit. If the page/post is then opened in the standard editor and a change made there when revisiting it in Gutenberg then the warning appears.

    The frustrating part is there seems to be no way of unlocking it for further editing.

    Yes, that was exactly the reason. I guess they will fix it since it is quit severe. Thanks
