    Hi there -

    I created a CPT and added it to my theme functions file. It was working well but the CPT would not show on the front end. I took a tip from another forum post to change permalinks to plain and that fixed it.
    I switched the permalinks back to Post Name and it still works on the front end, but now I can't edit or create new posts for the CPT on the back end. Editing existing posts or trying to add new results in completely white screen.

    I can create a new CPT and it works fine.

    Here's my code:

    <?php
    add_action( 'init', 'your_prefix_register_post_type' );
    function your_prefix_register_post_type() {
        $labels = [
            'name'                     => esc_html__( 'Coaching', 'your-textdomain' ),
            'singular_name'            => esc_html__( 'Coaching', 'your-textdomain' ),
            'add_new'                  => esc_html__( 'Add New', 'your-textdomain' ),

            'edit_item'                => esc_html__( 'Edit Coaching', 'your-textdomain' ),

    Debug:
    Deactivating all but Meta box/Meta Box AIO --> same results as above

    WP Debug gives the following:

    Notice: register_taxonomy was called incorrectly. The "type" taxonomy "name" property (type) conflicts with an existing property on the REST API Posts Controller. Specify a custom "rest_base" when registering the taxonomy to avoid this error. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

    There shouldn't be anything else (besides this CPT) using "coaching" as it's taxonomy.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your additional information.

    Does the taxonomy of the CPT coaching have the slug type? It might conflict with the Reserved Terms of WordPress https://codex.wordpress.org/Reserved_Terms

    Please change the slug of the taxonomy Type to another and re-save the permalink.

    Let me know if it helped.

    Hi Long -

    Yes, that was it. I had forgotten I had added a custom taxonomy with the slug: type last week. I recall seeing in the changelog that the plugin will now error when trying to use a reserved slug and sure enough, when I just checked on this, I see the error message.

    I've deleted the taxonomy and the problem is fixed.

    Thanks for your help!
