I am not able to edit the WordPress default posts/pages from front-end. I have tried to deactivate all plugins, check/uncheck toolbar option(from profile) and also wp_footer() function in the file.

But no luck any suggestion?

  • Have you tried switching back to the default theme? Some theme developers tend to disable it, because it's "pushing" their design - instead of working around it.

  • @MaharshiGadhavi - Okay, that's weird then. Are you using any caching plugins?

I have found the issue and resolved with below code.

function menu_shapespace_node_landearth($wp_admin_bar) {
//add_action('admin_bar_menu', 'menu_shapespace_node_landearth', 999);
