This is strange, I did not have to edit my home page since months, but I daily added and updated content, which I still can (articles). but no way to edit the home page, even tried to create code errors, nothing works. Flushed cache ans super cache, looked at it from other browsers...still no result What is blocking my edits? PS) my WP is up to date.
Switch your theme to a standard one that comes with WP, such as 2017 and then try. Your theme might have some problem. Next, disable each plugin, one by one. I'd guess you have a plugin problem. You'll need to provide more info on your problem.
Have you tried switching between Visual Editor and Text Editor, to see if there is some unseen error? Personally I don't like WP editor and usually copy the code to my text editor to make changes and then paste that in. It allows me to 'see' things that are not obvious in the interface.
@not2easy, sounds like a good idea I might paste it in my NetBeans, work on it and paste it back to WP but since it still will be an edit what will happen if from NetBeans I do a ctrl a/ ctrl c followed by a ctrl a/ ctrl v to replace existing content in the classical editor if it wont accept it? I guess i should try with just a tiny block.. BTW yes I did switch between the editors.
Sorry, I'm not familiar with the NetBeans editor, I thought it was a tool for Java dev. Can't help with the shortcut keystrokes for the same reason. If it does plain text in the same character set used for your WP theme, it should do the job though. I use BBEdit (mac).
Thanks, anyway I will give it a shot. Remember your old DOS short cuts...? I tried them on a friends mac it works too ctrl c = copy ctrl a = select all ctrl v = paste ctrl x = cut I know its not ctrl on a mac but there is another key that does it but cannot remember its name
Yes, I do remember some of those old DOS shortcuts, it's been over 30 years. The ones you've posted all work on Mac, I just wasn't sure if that's how they work with NetBeans. Mac's keyboard calls it 'control'.
Control is called control (now that they've started including it), but you're thinking of Command, as in cmd-C, cmd-A and so on ;)
Surely there is no application in the world that would not include the basic editing shortcuts, whether that's ctrl or cmd, according to OS. (Contrary to popular mythology, all those functions have to be individually coded per-application; they're not inherent in the machine. But who on earth wouldn't do so, if making a consumer application intended for ordinary human use?)
