Support » Requests and Feedback » Disable Editor Error Check – Feature Request

  • SamWired


    Hi there,

    I’m getting this message a lot these days (across various WP sites):

    ‘Unable to communicate back with site to check for fatal errors, so the PHP change was reverted. You will need to upload your PHP file change by some other means, such as by using SFTP.’

    Can we please have a function to disable this error check? I don’t need it if it’s going to prevent the file saving.

    I see various posts about turning off plugins, checking host config etc to get it working but surely that’s a very cumbersome workaround, the editor should not be rendered useless by rogue plugin behaviour.

    Interesting, I feel the assumption that the file editor needs to be made “idiot proof” for lack of a better term is maybe a little off. I don’t think inexperienced users would or should be messing around with theme files anyway. I still think it would be nice to have the option to turn the checking function off, at which point you could display a warning saying turning this feature off could break your site etc. Because it’s fairly easy to revert any misstep through external FTP anyway. I just prefer using the WP editor for convenience and to avoid sync issues.

    I’d like to be able to disable this new editor completely. I can’t search for text using the browser’s find function, and the find function in the editor does not repeat the search when you press F3. Pressing ctrl+F over and over is a major annoyance when building sites. And you have to make sure you’ve clicked inside the box when you start your search or nothing will come up.
