Support » Plugin: ThemeZee Magazine Blocks » category in content settings changes by itself to “all categories”

    Hello everybody,

    I have been using this plugin in my Harrison theme since a few months. I like it, but I have experienced serveral times in my landing page, where I have a Magazine vertical (within a columns-block):

    The specified category I chose in “category” in “content settings” changes automatically into “all categories”. So, its not showing the category I want.

    I dont see a reason for that, it happens “over night”. Maybe its related somehow to the automatically WordPress updates, there is somehow an time correlation to the incident and update notifications of my webhosting provider.

    Also interesting: When I want to fix it, I mostly dont even have to edit the page/block. Often it’s enought to simply login into the backend website – and the specified category is there again.

    This bug could be a reason to abandon the plugin, because it distorts my landing page. But I would really like to use the plugin in future.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hello Robert,

    Thanks so much for using Harrison and my Magazine Blocks.

    It sounds like some caching issue. Once you login it works again, because as logged-in user you don’t get a cached version, but posts are fetched from the server.

    Could be some issue with the built-in cache of the Magazine blocks, or any external caching plugin active on your site. If you’re using WP Rocket, W3 Cache, Super Cache or any other WordPress caching plugin, I suggest to try if the Magazine Blocks work fine without it.

    I’m working right now on the CategorySelect component to make selecting multiple categories possible, so maybe I’m also able to track down any outstanding issues there.

    Cheers,
    Thomas
