Support » Fixing WordPress » Block editor problem

  • Since the WordPress update I have not been able to edit posts in the block editor as haf way down each page, the blocks are blocked (!) by a series of drop down menus as in the image link.

    Two of the these are related to plugins – Yoast and Ultimate Social Media. If I disable these the dropdowns disappear. One is, rather unfortunately, related to the theme I use, which is a real problem for such a large site.

    But one of the dropdowns is actually for the post settings themselves. Which I can do nothing about as that’s an actual WP thing. Anyone else having this problem? Fixes, advice, anything would be good. I’ve temporarily went back to the classic editor but would rather have a proper fix. Many thanks.

  • Post details on the Yoast, Ultimate Social Media and your theme’s support forums respectively.
    There were big changes in 5.4. so bugs are to be expected (even though they still suck).
    The developers can’t fix what they don’t know about though 🙂

    I have done and deactivated the plugins. It’s the WordPress problem that I’m trying to get resolved. Thanks.

    Generally plugins need to ensure compatibility with WordPress, not the other way around.
    So you would (generally) not be reporting the matter to WordPress.org (which would be done in a Trac ticket if it had to happen).
    Instead you would (again generally) inform the plugin developer so that they can make the necessary changes to become compatible.

    If it does genuinely point to a bug in Core, the plugin dev is the best person to create the ticket, since they can add more technical detail.

    There is a problem with the Core because even after deactivating the plugins there is still a drop down appearing in the middle of the block editor which relates to Post Settings.

    I have posted with the plugin developers although one of them simply said “tell WordPress”! THanks.

    You can report it here:
    https://core.trac.wordpress.org/newticket
    I can’t guarantee that it will be changed though.

    All the best.
