I am using the Gutenberg Editor, and when trying to create a new page to publish, I get: Publishing Failed.

Debugging using the console gives me:

 Status: 403 (in red)
 Type: fetch
 Initiator: api-fetch.min.js?ver=3.1

Can someone help?

  • This isn't an error I've seen before. Can you please start by disabling all plugins and re-activating them one-by-one trying to publish every time? If it works without a specific plugin then you've found your culprit. Jun 19, 2019 at 9:06
  • The only fix is to switch back to the classic editor. Then it instantly works. Disabling all plugins was one thing I did try, and that didn't help

  • It's literally impossbile that you can't create a new post or page without plugins on a fresh install of WP running a default theme. Something is in the way so switch back to twenty nineteen to try as well. Jun 21, 2019 at 12:44
