  • Hi @kentbrew!

    Yes, I think that is a safe assumption–at least, that assumption obtains on all the WordPress sites that I manage.

    Thank you!

    My diagnosis of the same (or similar problem) so far is here. (It seems like an issue with Social Warfare’s inability to handle the latest tinyMCE standards in 4.9.6, as far as I can tell.)

    I’ve contacted the plugin developers. I’m just posting this to (a) save other Social Warfare users some troubleshooting and (b) see if others have a better idea than the obvious one (i.e., deactivating the problem plugins).

    Thanks for your reply!

    Thanks for reproducing this for Pinterest, @dwcouch! I look forward to hearing more (if more happens).

    Thanks @dwcouch. That makes sense. Two updates:

    1. I was able to recover the content from the Way Back Machine: https://web.archive.org/web/20170826184218/byrdnick.com/archives/11793/christopher-peacocke-reflective-self-consciousness

    2. I had migrated my site to a new host about a month after this post went up. Perhaps — related to your hypothesis — this post reverted back to an earlier revision as a result of that migration process. I’m hoping that this is the only post that was reverted/corrupted. I’ll check the rest ASAP.

    I’d say your hypothesis is the current best explanation. If I can conclusively support one or another hypothesis, I’ll post an update.

    In the meantime, I remain open to additional thoughts and ideas.

    A colleague found the following workaround for Chrome users:

    …if you go to the end of your comment and hit “tab”, you should jump to the next boxes and see the “post comment” button again.

    @fivejs: I am editing in Safari with the Pinterest extension installed.

    That seems to support your hypothesis that the problem is Safari and/or the Pinterest extension.

    @petredobrescu: Are you posting/editing in Safari and/or with a Pinterest extension installed?

    I seem to be still getting the error despite switching to Php 5.6

    Done. Thanks! I’ll come back in 24 hours to report whether I am still receiving these errors. If I’m not, I’ll be sure to mark this as resolved (and give @gauravpadia credit).

    You are right, @gauravpadia: I am running PHP 7 after all.

    I just contacted my host. Here are my PHP 5 options:

    PHP 5.4
    All files with the extension .php will be handled by the PHP 5.4 engine.
    Legacy PHP with security updates. Compatible with most environments.

    PHP 5.4 (Single php.ini)
    Same as PHP 5.4, but all subdirectories will use ~/public_html/php.ini

    PHP 5.4 (FastCGI)
    All files with the extension .php will be handled by PHP 5.4 FastCGI processes.
    FastCGI for PHP makes all your PHP applications run through mod_fastcgi instead of mod_suphp. This eliminates the overhead of loading the PHP interpreter on every hit. Since it is always in memory ready for the next hit, the responses will be generated faster.

    PHP 5.6
    All files with the extension .php will be handled by the PHP 5.6 engine.

    PHP 5.6 (Single php.ini)
    Same as PHP 5.6, but all subdirectories will use ~/public_html/php.ini

    PHP 5.6 (FastCGI)
    All files with the extension .php will be handled by PHP 5.6 FastCGI processes.
    FastCGI for PHP makes all your PHP applications run through mod_fastcgi instead of mod_suphp. This eliminates the overhead of loading the PHP interpreter on every hit. Since it is always in memory ready for the next hit, the responses will be generated faster.

    Any idea which of these PHP 5 options would be best?

    And this error showed up yesterday after I posted this;

    [04-Jul-2017 12:02:20 UTC] PHP Warning: mkdir(): File exists in /home1/byrdnick/public_html/wp-content/mu-plugins/endurance-page-cache.php on line 218

    I didn’t install that plugin. I suspect that my host installed it (after some spikes in traffic that were causing performance issues). I don’t even see the plugin on my Plugin page.

    I’ve been having the same problem with this post for over 24 hours: https://www.byrdnick.com/archives/11072/the-bias-fallacy

    Any help (from anyone) is appreciated.

    Update 1: Within 20 minutes of posting this comment, the problem spontaneously disappeared.

    Update 2: It occurs to me that I turned on SSL just over 24 hours ago. I wonder if that is related to the problem’s recent appearance and dissappearance.
