  • For some reason, the export function in “Tools / Export” does not work. When you click the “Download export file” button, nothing happens, it just instantly transfers it to the main page of the site. Tried it on different themes from paid to default – it does not work. What could be the reason? WordPress bug?

    More likely a conflict on your own website. I just tested this on a fresh WordPress install with the default 2021 theme and no plugin… and it works.

    I’ll suggest you install the Health Check & Troubleshooting plugin to try to get to the bottom of this.

    Yes indeed works in English version of WordPress. A big surprise for me, because as soon as I switch the language of the site to Russian, the export does not work at all. New installation, default theme, not a single plugin.

    As far as I understand, the functionality of the export function depends on which specific language is activated in the WordPress site settings. Export works with any language selection except Russian. At first, I thought that there was a problem with the Cyrillic alphabet, but it turned out that when choosing any Slavic language, the export function works! I tried Ukrainian, Belarusian, Serbian, Bulgarian without any problems. But as soon as I switched the site to Russian, the export function categorically refused to work at all. I am not a supporter of the theory of a global conspiracy, but it all looks like sabotage, like the assessments of Russian girls in rhythmic gymnastics at the Olympics in Tokyo)))
