Suggested April 2024 WordPress 5.6.1 Introduces Bug Into Post And Page Windows

WordPress 5.6.1, which many sites auto-updated to, has introduced a bug that makes it difficult to save a post. A temporary patch has been created to address the issue but it’s not an official update to solve the problem.

Changes You Made May Not Be Saved

A bug introduced into the latest version of WordPress, version 5.6.1 causes an alert to pop up when attempting to navigate away, regardless if the post has been saved or not.

The bug was reported in a WordPress support page:

“I am getting the pop up “Leave Site? Changes you made may not be saved. All the time, if I change a page or not, and if I save (publish or update) the page or not.

This began after the 5.6.1 upgrade this morning. I have 2 sites, with 2 different themes, both with the classic editor 1.6 and it behaves the same on both.

It does this in Chrome, it does not do it in Firefox.”

The fact that it doesn’t happen in Firefox is interesting because, according to Mozilla documentation, Firefox handles certain aspects of the unload event differently from Chrome in that Chrome lacks certain features.

This is not a Chrome issue however. I’m simply pointing out why a bug may show up in Chrome but not in Firefox.

Unload Events Bug in WordPress Editing Window?

The notice is part of what’s called an “unload event” that triggers a warning when a publisher tries to navigate away from a window, usually when something is left undone.

The exact warning message triggered is:

“Leave Site? Changes you made may not be saved.”

The bug manifests itself in both posts and pages. But some publishers have reported that the bug is only present when editing page content and works fine when editing post content.

According to several reports the bug could be triggered by editing related plugins like Tiny MCE and Advanced Custom Fields. Turning off those plugins stops the unload message from spawning.

A publisher reported in the private Advanced WordPress Facebook group that turning off the Advanced Custom Fields plugin stopped the warning from spawning.

But the problem is not with the plugins themselves. The problem appears to be within the WordPress core itself which is causing the problem to manifest in different editing related windows.

One publisher reported relief by turning on the Gutenberg editing environment:

“Do You Want to Leave This Site? Changes you made may not be saved” Alert notice on leaving updated pages (but not posts) after 5.6.1 update when using classic editor. …Goes away when Gutenberg is turned back on.”

Another publisher noted that WordPress editing related plugins seemed to trigger the bug:

“Update: It looks like the user has to wait for TinyMCE to entirely load before making a change, otherwise the script doesn’t take his change into account.

A good visual hint is the dropshadow of toolbar which dispear once the editor is correctly initialized.”

One user uploaded a video of a walkthrough showing how the bug is spawned. In the video the publisher chooses a document to edit and enters the editing window.

But that act causes the unload warning message to spawn.

Below is an animated gif of the movie that was uploaded showing the walkthrough of the bug:

Temporary Solution Has Been Posted

This version of the patch is fully functional. It’s code that needs to be inserted into the chúng tôi file.

There is another patch that was shared that addresses an additional issue but it has not been fully tested.

WordPress 5.6.1 “Changes Not Saved” Bug

If the issue is hindering your workflow, there are steps that can be taken. One recommended step could be to wait to make sure that all editing related plugins are fully loaded. Other actions include disabling editing related plugins or turning on Gutenberg.

There is a patch that can be applied to chúng tôi and lastly one can wait for an official patch.

How To Add Custom Post Status In WordPress

WordPress has multiple built-in post statuses like draft, published, trash, pending, and scheduled. If these statuses are not enough for your workflow, then you can create your own custom post statuses.

WordPress official documentation has a simple way to add custom post statuses to your WordPress site. All you have to do is copy the provided snippet and paste it into the functions file or the functionality plugin. However, for whatever reason, it doesn’t work every time, and the result is a bit finicky. Moreover, the added custom post status will not appear in the dropdown menu without fiddling with some javascript.

So to avoid all the issues that come with adding a code snippet and make things easier, we are going to use a free plugin called PublishPress.

PublishPress is a small yet powerful plugin that is specifically designed to manage editing flow or regular and multi-author WordPress websites. As such, it has a built-in feature to quickly create and add new custom post statuses.

Add Custom Post Status to WordPress

5. That is it, you’ve successfully created the new post status.

From this point forward, you will see the custom post status appear in the dropdown menu when creating a post or page.

Of course, you will also see the new custom post status in the Quick Edit menu.

One thing to keep in mind is when you want to uninstall the PublishPress plugin, you have to manually change the post statuses of all the posts, pages, and custom post types from custom post status to default WordPress post status like Draft before uninstalling.

Otherwise, the posts with custom post status will disappear but NOT be deleted from your WordPress dashboard. The same is true even when you chose to use the snippet provided in the official WordPress documentation. If you accidentally uninstalled the plugin without first changing the post statuses, you can make them reappear by simply reinstalling the plugin from the WordPress repository.

Comment below sharing your thoughts and experiences regarding using the above method to add custom post statuses in WordPress.

Fix Slow Gutenberg Post Editor In WordPress – Webnots

WordPress replaced the classic editor and introduced Gutenberg editor with the release of version 5.0. Since many users like the easiness of the old classic editor, WordPress still offers a “Classic Editor” plugin to continue using the old classic editor interface. However, Gutenberg is the future of WordPress and you have no other options to start using it sooner or later.

Fix Slow Gutenberg Post Editor in WordPress

Try the followings to fix slow Gutenberg editor:

Check your internet connection

Remove blocks you are not using

Disable meta boxes

Stop autosave and revisions

Avoid large tables

Use light theme and plugins

Update WordPress

Check your hosting

Use classic editor

1. Check Internet Connection

Gutenberg will load many scripts and styles needed for each block element. So, the initial loading needs proper internet connection. If you have very slow or interrupted connection, you will see some error messages on the editor. For example, the slow connection will lead to failure in the autosave and show message like “Updating failed. Error message: The response is not a valid JSON response”.  

Gutenberg Editor Issues

Check your Wi-Fi network is strong enough or try to use network cables to have stable connection. Also ensure that you have free internet without blocking services. Otherwise, you need to use VPN to have unblocked internet.

2. Stop Autosave and Revisions

In Autosave is a core function in WordPress that helps to retain different versions of the post. When you have a problem like internet connection failed, you can retrieve the latest version from the autosaved revisions. Though this is a useful function from data recovery perspective, saving the content every few minutes in the editor will impact your speed. As shown in the above screen, you will get JSON error when autosave fails in the editor.

You can see the process running in the background indicated as “Saving”. During this time, WordPress will also disable the “Publish” or “Update” button affecting your work. In our opinion, many of us don’t need this autosave function and you can learn in our earlier article on how to disable autosave and revisions.

3. Disable Blocks in Gutenberg Editor

choose “Manage Block Editor”.

Manage Blocks and Meta Boxes in Gutenberg

Disable all the blocks you never use on your site.

4. Meta Boxes on Post Editor

Do you have lots of meta boxes in the post editor? Many plugins and themes will add meta boxes in the post editor to setup specific options for that page. Each meta box on the post editor will impact the loading speed. For example, plugins like Yoast SEO, WP Review and WP Rocket all add meta boxes in the editor.

“Options” from the dropdown.

Disable meta boxes that you don’t want to load on the editor.

Disable Meta Boxes

After disabling the blocks and meta boxes, you can feel the editor will load faster.

5. Avoid Large Tables

The table block in Gutenberg will respond slow when you have large amount of content in the table. Though the recent versions improved the performance, it still lags the typing when you have large table content. Make sure you have reasonable rows / columns in the table. Otherwise use separate table plugins like TablePress to create tables outside the editor and embed on the post using shortcode.

6. Use Light Theme and Plugins 7. Update WordPress

This will help to resolve some of the old problems and improve the editor speed.

8. Check Your Hosting

In our previous article, we have explained how the hosting affects the admin pages. Poor shared hosting also will impact the loading time of the Gutenberg editor, especially when you are editing the content during peak traffic to your site. Check with your hosting company to understand the resource utilization from PHP files like chúng tôi in most situation, you should upgrade the hosting depending upon the traffic and load on your server.

9. Use Classic Editor

Unfortunately, you can’t implement some of the above fixes like replacing theme or certain plugin. If this is the case, you should consider going back to the classic editor. Remember, Gutenberg is not integrated with WooCommerce and bbPress forms. Also, most of the custom post types in WordPress will still use the classic editor interface. Therefore, going back to Gutenberg is a good option for online store and forum sites. This will help you to have the same classic interface for all editors.

However, Gutenberg being part of the core will still load the resources on the editor. You may need to analyze and deque these files to completely stop Gutenberg and use classic editor.   

Final Words

As many users complained, WordPress pushed Gutenberg without complete preparation. Though there are many updates to improve the performance, it does not make sense to load two editors when you have WooCommerce or bbPress. However, if you have a larger blog or spend long time on the post editor then Gutenberg is the way to go. We hope the above mentioned points address the reasons for slow Gutenberg editor and help you to speed up the editor loading time.   

Microsoft Introduces Dev Home App For Windows 11

Microsoft rolls out a preview of the Dev Home app for Windows 11.

The app has been designed to help developers work more efficiently while building new experiences.

In addition, the Windows Terminal is getting AI integration with the GitHub Copilot X.

Finally, Windows 11 is also getting native support to open tar, 7-zip, rar, gz, and more.

Microsoft introduces “Dev Home,” a new app for Windows 11 that will improve how developers set up, test, and build applications. According to the official announcement, the app will streamline the workflow with several new features, including using the Windows Package Manager (winget) command tool to make it easier and faster to set up a development environment and the new “Dev Drive” feature for better file system performance and a new dashboard to track your workflow.

According to the company, the new experience will make it easy to connect to GitHub and set up your machine to code, including installing the tools and packages you need. In addition, you can also use the app to configure your coding environments in the cloud using Microsoft Dev Box and GitHub Codespaces.

In addition, the app also introduces a new “Dev Drive” experience that allows developers to create virtual hard disks using the Resilient File System (ReFS), which, combined with a unique performance mode capability in Microsoft Defender for Antivirus, offers up to 30 percent file system improvement in build times for file I/O scenarios. The new performance mode is more secure than a folder or process exclusions. However, it appears that the “Dev Drive” isn’t a feature of the “Dev Home” app. Instead, it’s a link to the “Disks & volumes” settings that will now feature the ability to create ReFS virtual drives.

Finally, the app features a customizable dashboard to help you manage any project, including those that involve Windows, cloud, web, mobile, or AI.

Furthermore, the app also supports GitHub widgets to efficiently track all coding tasks or pull requests and projects from one central location and system widgets to track CPU and GPU performance. Microsoft says it is working with Team Xbox to bring the GDK to Dev Home to make it easy to start game creation.

Dev Home is an open-source application, which means that the community will be able to provide input to improve the experience over time. You can download a preview of the app now from the Microsoft Store.

Windows Terminal with AI

In addition to the new app, Microsoft also announced that the Windows Terminal is getting AI integration with the GitHub Copilot X. Users with access to the GitHub Copilot experience will be able to use the natural language AI both inline and in an experimental chat experience to recommend commands, explain errors and take actions inside the Windows Terminal.

As part of the Windows Terminal improvements, the company is adding tab tear-out, allowing you can easily organize your different shells into windows.

You can sign up to get early access to the Copilot Hub at GitHub.

Windows 11 with libarchive integration

Also, the team is integrating the libarchive open-source project into Windows 11 to bring native support to open additional archive formats, including tar, 7-zip, rar, gz and many others.

How To Integrate Paypal Payment Into Your WordPress Site

The Internet eliminates the geographical barrier between buyers and sellers. As long as there’s an internet connection, you could live on a remote island in the middle of nowhere and sell your goods or services to someone from other parts of the world, all thanks to the revolution of online payment.

Using PayPal.Me

In September 2024 PayPal launched to help ordinary people get paid easily using a simple web address.

To use chúng tôi you need to register your name as the address, and you will have a unique link that you can use to ask for payment. The link will look like this: “”

You can also add a specific amount of money to the last part of the link if you want to. For example, if I want my friend to send me one dollar, I could modify my link to look like this: “” where “1” at the end of the URL represents one dollar.

You can insert your chúng tôi link into an email, tweet, short message, or anything else including a web page or a WordPress post.

Quick PayPal Payments Plugin

The Quick Paypal Payments plugin is simple and powerful. You create a payment form via the settings and add the form to any page using a shortcode. You can also customize the appearance of the payment form using an easy-to-use user interface.

PayPal Donations Plugin

Although the name comes with the word “donation,” this plugin can be customized to accept any payment. It uses shortcode similar to Quick PayPal payment but also comes with a ready-to-use WordPress widget that you can use in the sidebar or other available widget areas.

WordPress Simple PayPal Shopping Cart Plugin

If you want to sell multiple products, either digital or physical, you need more than a simple buy/pay/donate button. You need a shopping cart. This plugin is the plugin that you need to add a simple shopping cart (hence the name) where people can add your products, and when they’ve finished shopping they can go to the checkout to pay you using PayPal.

Easy PayPal Shopping Cart Plugin

This plugin is another shopping cart plugin for WordPress that can help you sell items on your site. Adding a cart button is as simple as inserting it into any WordPress post/page.

PayPal for WooCommerce Plugin

Adding PayPal for WooCommerce will give users extra support for both PayPal express checkout and PayPal Pro API for all WooCommerce websites. You can configure it in the PayPal Payments Pro tab under the “Checkout” settings.

Apple Introduces Iphone 6 And Apple Watch

As rumored, Apple today took the wraps off two new iPhones during a streamed media presentation in Cupertino, Calif.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus boast a new Retina HD screens. “Not any display would do,” said Schiller. Compared to the 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 6 sports a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1334 pixels by 750 pixels.

The larger, phablet-sized iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 pixels by 1080 pixels, which translates into over 2 million pixels, 185 percent more than the iPhone 5S, noted Schiller. Both models feature a glass front that curves slightly around the edge.

Highlights include iOS 8, an updated 8 megapixel iSight camera and a faster A8 64-bit processor with 2 billion transistors that is “50 times faster than the original iPhone,” said Schiller. Connectivity is enhanced with a 150 Mbps LTE and a Wi-Fi Calling feature that “seamlessly” hands off to cellular networks. In the U.S., T-Mobile will support Wi-Fi calling.

Eddie Cue, senior vice president of Internet Software and Services at Apple, later showed off the company’s mobile payments solution, Apple Wallet. A combination of near-field communication (NFC) technology, Touch ID, a Secure Element chip and specialized software, the Apple Wallet integrates with Passbook to enable secure payments with retailers and select e-commerce apps.

Cue assured that his company will respect the privacy of Apple Wallet users. “The transaction is between you, the merchant and your bank,” he said.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus go on sale on Sept. 19. iPhone 6 prices start at the $199 for the 16 GB model and top out at $399 for the 128 GB version. The 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus prices start at $299. Preorders for both models start on Sept. 12.

Apple Watch

The event’s “one more thing” was the long-rumored iWatch, or as the company is branding it, the Apple Watch. Available in two sizes, the wearable “works seamlessly with iPhone,” said Cook. It also serves as a “comprehensive health and fitness device,” he added.

Apple Watch pushed the company to explore new interface and device interaction models. “What we didn’t do is take the iPhone and shrink the user interface,” said Cook.

The touch-capable, sapphire-enhanced display is complemented with a “digital crown” that contains infrared LEDs. Users can press and twist the dial to zoom and otherwise navigate the Apple Watch UI. A rear sensor monitors a user’s heart rate. It also features integration with Apple Pay for mobile payments.

To get developers on board, Apple is making available a software development kit (SDK) called WatchKit to extend iPhone apps to the device. Apple watch requires the iPhone, said Cook, before revealing that the smartwatch is backward compatible with iPhone models stretching back to the iPhone 5.

Apple’s wearable will be available in three versions, the base Apple Watch, the Sport and the 18 karat gold Edition. A range of interchangeable watch bands, from leather to sweat-resistant plastic to an array of metals, add an additional touch of personalization.

Prices start at $349. Apple Watch is scheduled to ship in early 2024.
