Support » Plugin: Raw HTML » PHP Fatal Error

  • maddentim


    Since updating raw-html to 1.6 and WordPress to 5.2, we are seeing some PHP fatal errors with raw-html referenced. I am the site developer so I did not experience the error directly, just saw it in the log. It has not been reported by a user, but I always take php errors seriously (at least in production 🙂 )

    Let me know if you need more info. Here is a stack trace:

    [20-May-2019 04:21:03 UTC] PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function use_block_editor_for_post_type() in /.../wp_us/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-screen.php:328

    Thank you for the report. I can’t seem to reproduce this error on my test site, which leads me to think that either it’s a plugin compatibility issue or there might be something wrong with the WordPress installation (like a failed upgrade).

    Here are some ideas:

    • Make sure that the “Classic Editor” plugin is up to date. I’ve seen reports that older versions of this plugin had a bug that could cause similar fatal errors.
    • If the site is still running the Gutenberg plugin, try deactivating it. It’s no longer necessary in WP 5.2.
    • It sounds like this file could be out of date: /wp-admin/includes/post.php. Can you check if it contains a function named use_block_editor_for_post_type? If it doesn’t then the file probably didn’t get updated properly when installing WP 5.2. Try reinstalling WP 5.2.
    • Finally, there’s a small chance that it could be a caching issue. Try clearing the PHP opcode cache and/or restarting the web server.
