When I go to add a post or page to my WordPress site, the permalink and featured image are already populated with a 10 year old post, thus we are unable to create new content.
Recent changes done on the site:
- We ran a find-and-replace in wp_posts to rebrand part of our company, however that should only have affected that string inside
<p>tags since our search included spaces
- We deleted old post revisions from the database to make it lighter
- We ran a database cleanup plugin
I know one solution will be to rollback the database before these changes were made, but this bug was only discovered now (a week later), so recovering from the error is preferable.
