Support » Fixing WordPress » Cannot Edit on 5.5 No imagick

    My site displays okay but I can’t edit my last few posts.

    I get a message: “This block has encountered an error and cannot be previewed.”

    I tried disabling all my plugins but that hasn’t helped.

    It is wordpress 5.5

    and p.s. I notice in that editor doesn’t seem to have anything on the page to show you how to end an edit? I want to cancel and back out when I get that message but can’t find anything to do but back arrow. Same with posts that do edit, or apparently would.

    Bit of a worry. Anyone know anything about this? Should I try a reinstall of 5.5 or is that a danger?

    p.p.s. I apparently don’t have imagick installed and the system thinks I should have. How to do that? I downloaded a think and read the txt and it seems I have to do it all up on my host’s server. By hand so to speak. Is it something I should mail them about and ask them to do?

    Instead consider updating to the 5.5.1

    I apparently don’t have imagick installed and the system thinks I should have. How to do that?

    It’s the PHP Extension. Contact your hosting provider.

    Thank you for that. I was lazy writing the numbers, reading them and repeating them – I have 5.5.1, it is up to date.

    I’ll contact 3ix about the PHP extension.

    A little more about the problem – I think all the posts that I can’t edit have links in them to other sites. Could that be the cause?

    p.s. I just noticed something else. In the editor just now I got no error message but I got no text I did see some faint wavy red lines. The same lines you see when a spell checker is underlining words it thinks are wrong.

    so the system thinks it is displaying the text I suppose. is there some switch somewhere where somehow it’s got text display set to white and that’s why I can’t see any?

    edit a few minutes later:

    it has all come good. it’s okay. I deactivated WP User and WP Full Page and now it works. I was just staring at the blank edit screen and suddenly the text popped up. After that anywhere I go the text pops up. I guess the delay was something about the software promulgating my changes.

    Okay. Thanks for the help. Hope this little story is some help in the future to someone, somewhere. 🙂
