Support » Fixing WordPress » Opt out of 4.9 editing alarms

  • So far I’ve only gone to “/wp-admin/theme-editor.php” like I do on a regular basis. But going there and seeing all the notices and warnings on the way there was enough to come here… any way to update security or core, whatever makes wp faster and better, and get rid of, roll back, opt out of, the hand holding features?

    Hiya,

    The warnings that pop up on these screens are a one time thing, if you click “I understand” it won’t pop up the next time you visit.

    Unless you’re referring to something else ?

    Did that already. How about getting rid of the code highlights, numbered lines and auto-complete in the editor?

    If you don’t wish to use the fancy code editor you can disable it by going into your profile, there’s a checkbox to disable them at the very top there.

    Thanks Marius. I’ll take a look.

    Okay, got rid of code highlight… Got this when editing footer: “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.”

    Oh, I see the topic is already circulating. I guess my question is who is the “We” and why is it anybodies business whether I toast my site or not. That “we” is most likely doing something that I’ve instructed my server to block.

    “We” is WordPress, and if you are blocking that kind of traffic you should be editing files in a compatible way instead of using the built in editors.

    The safety checks are there for the masses, for the majority of users they are a necessity to help protect them from accidents.

    what method is wp using to “communicate” with the server?

    I’m going to try and recreate the error

    wp_remote_get(), it’s part of the WP HTTP API.

    didn’t get much from error report but anything like remote_get is gonna run into a wall.
