WordPress 5 breaking Internet

Many users are unable to edit pages that they have made, and others will be unable to even access their edit screen. There may even be 500 errors or white screens for some users. These issues will mostly effect WordPress sites running older or unsupported themes or plugins, but may affect some brand-new sites as well.
The process for fixing these errors is well known among WordPress developers, but for the many people who use WordPress as a tool and not a livelihood, this can be a major issue, and there isn’t currently a clear source for information on remediating the issue.
The only solution as of now is move back to Classic Editor plugin
Installing and configuring the Classic Editor plugin is the first and most important debugging step for problems with WordPress 5.0. The Classic Editor plugin will restore the editing experience from WordPress 4.x.

  1. Log in to your WordPress dashboard at https://<your domain.here>/wp-admin
  2. Go to the Plugins section of the left-hand menu
  3. Click the “add new” button at the top
  4. Search for “Classic Editor” on the right-hand side
  5. Click “Install Now” on the card related to Classic Editor (By WordPress Contributors)
  6. When the installation completes, click “Activate”
  7. Go to the “Settings” section of the Dashboard’s left-hand menu, and open the “Writing Settings” link that appears.
  8. Ensure that “Replace the Gutenberg Editor with the Classic editor.” is selected. (this setting has changed with new versions of the Classic Editor plugin. Now there are two settings “default editor for all users” needs to be set to “Classic Editor” and “Allow users to switch editors” needs to be false)
  9. Check to make sure that you do NOT have the Gutenberg Plugin installed. If so, deactivate and uninstall the plugin.

Migrating to PHP 7 is a must

PHP Application Development is gaining popularity worldwide. That’s because of its sheer flexibility. But is it even worth for businesses to grow in php development while switching to 7? Yes, of course it is! Let’s find out the benefits of upgrading from version 5.
1. Optimization: PHP 7 is highly optimized in every way, it was freshly developed. The entire code was written again and nothing has been carried forward in the code from previous versions. All glitches have been avoided this time.
2. Speed & performance: The most important benefit of migrating from php 5.6.15 to php 7.0.0. Compiling and executing code in php 5 is considerably slow than that of php 7, which is 2 times faster. Test it and notice its difference. The 7th version is super-fast and delivers high performance.
3. Less memory consumption: PHP developers will instantly want to switch to php 7 from php 5 since memory consumption is their main concern. This version is by far the best version of php since it consumes 50% less memory. Yes, that’s correct. This provides high performance in return.
There is no doubt that PHP 7 represents huge improvements over its predecessors. However, it is no easy task to switch from the existing system to PHP 7. Large environments such as those of Etsy and Wikimedia Foundation took over 6 months to switch and start working smoothly. So, you should expect issues for a while until things calm down. The above benefits of php 7 development over php 5 will help the business grow.  It’s worth migrate as soon as possible from php 5 to php 7 to keep up with the latest technology.
