I have installed Gutenberg on a simple, local WP site.
I have installed and activated the plugin but whenever I try to make a change to a post, I get the
updating failed warning. Checking in the dev tools I see that a
403 Forbidden reponce is being given back by the server.
I followed the advice in this article, making sure I had pretty permalinks on.
I sent the request to BURP to have a play with the request being sent. Here it is:
If I make the request
GET rather than
PUT, I get a valid 200 response but the changes obviously don't take effect. I thought perhaps that my local server was blocking PUT requests. I don't have
mod_security enabled though so I don't know what else would be blocking them.
I am running
- PHP 7.0.18
- WP 4.9.1
- Gutenberg 2.0.0
I have tried installing Gutenberg on a vanilla WP installation and am getting the same results
