You can neither create a new post nor edit an existing one.

On this screenshot you can also see that I am using custom background and custom fonts. If you’re interested in how to do that, check this tutorial.

I think many of you already know how to fix this issue 😁 Have some ideas?

If not, my next question is – do you use permalinks (pretty URLs) on your website? 🤔
