    Resolved Matt

    I had my post types setup and things were working. I'm not sure if it was after I setup a bunch of taxonomies or not that things stopped working.

    I now can't ADD a new post OR EDIT any of the posts for this specific post types. The pages are completely BLANK. I had three post types setup and two work and the one I've been working on the most stopped working. I can edit a page in Elementor (with Switch Editor Loader Method enabled) but I can't add any new posts.


    I've been working overtime to get this setup and have hit a real wall. I have tried deactivating all plugins but I can't deactivate MetaBox as my custom post types disappear but have tried all but MetaBox and Elementor and still have same issue.

    I'm not very technical so no idea if its helpful but this shows as error in debug plugin when I try and load the Add/Edit pages:

    Since I'm in a time crunch and desperate to figure this out to get the site up I tried DELETING all my taxonomies for that POST TYPE. Once I did the Add/Edit page started working again.

    Why are taxonomies causing the pages not to load?

    Hi Matt,

    Looks like there's an error with the taxonomy setup and REST API. However, I couldn't replicate it on my local site. Can you take a screenshot of taxonomy settings?


    Thanks for checking.



    So I tried deleting all of them then re-adding them manually. It was the "type" taxonomy that caused the issues. I deleted it, the pages loaded then RECREATED it using same settings as the other taxonomies and it stopped working again once it was created. Something to do with the word type/types?

    Once I changed the name from Types to Styles the issue resolved. Let me know what you think is going on with the word type/types.

    Hi Matt,

    I guess the type taxonomy is used somewhere else on your website. Maybe it's registered by WP or other plugin. In this case, I think you did best: changing its slug makes it unique and works.
