While I am an IT dummy, as a writer I’ve been using Gutenberg more or less successfully during the past 12 months on my website http://www.adrianchambersmotorsports.com.au. My Email Subscribers system sends out one or two weekly posts to my followers.
My usual process is to draft my article in Word, then copy and paste it to WordPress for final edit and publishing.
Last week, for some unknown reason, I encountered an error message which would not allow me to paste my article. I had to change to the Classic editor to complete my task.
Why is that and what can I do about it? I do not wish to revert to Classic.
I recently added Rank Math and disabled Yoast.
Thank you, Adrian
I now understand my issue has something to do with an “empty reusable block” and that Gutenberg is addressing it in an upcoming update. I’m now trying to figure out what that is, although I’m told it’s now been deleted from my site and I’m advised I can use Gutenberg again. I’ll try it and let you know.
GitHub” “This is something that will be fixed in an upcoming version of the Gutenberg plugin.
It’s a bad bug that’s triggered by having an empty reusable block on your site. As a temporary workaround you can remove the empty reusable block from your site, or add something to it.”
I can now use Gutenberg without any problems!
So happy to learn that you found this workaround, and shared it here for anyone else who may encounter this same issue!
Thank you, Shawn. Trust all’s well with you and yours. Cheers
