  • Swap out your theme temporarily and see if that problem tracks with the new theme. I usually keep Twenty Thirteen or Twenty Seventeen around for just such purposes.

    Normally, you won’t lose your settings doing that but you can also run the Health Check plugin to swap the theme out while logged in… you can also disable all the plugins and test things that way to try to resolve a problem like this.

    I’m leaning toward the theme causing this myself.

    It indeed was an error in the theme that came with the WordPress 5 update. The respective php just needed a one-character-change: from “get_the_date( ‘[some character I already don’t remember]’ )” to “get_the_date( ‘c’ )”.

    Thank you very much for your help!
