  • Resolved ndcadmin


    We have a wordpress gutenberg site that was working wonderfully up until fairly recently.
    Suddenly no admin edit pages will load, pages, posts, reusable blocks, etc.

    Now we get 84 warnings in the console about blocks not having a registered category, even many core blocks. when i console.log(wp.blocks.getBlockTypes()) it shows 92 blocks, but none of the blocks that are triggering the warning. Those are all missing. Even the core ones.

    What in the heck? What could be causing this?
    How do I debug this mess?

    finally got to the bottom of things and posting back here so that others can know the fix if they run into the same issue.

    an older version of the gutenberg plugin was destroying the site after a wp upgrade. upgrading the gutenberg plugin to 9.0 and making some fixes for the stuff that broke resolved the issue.

    there were some major breaking changes between gutenberg and wordpress’ built in gutenberg. and yes the plugin is needed as this site utilizes full page templates and is 100% gutenberg with no php template files.
