As the world’s most popular content management system, WordPress is not immune to errors. There are always various errors caused by different reasons.
Depending on the symptoms and use cases, the error will throw various error messages.
And if you found an error saying “You are currently editing the page that shows your latest posts“, you can follow this simple workaround to get out of this WordPress error.
The main symptom of such an error is the fact that you cannot add a new post or a new page.
How can such an error occur and how to fix it?
Our first experience encountering this error was during our blog migration from one web hosting to another.
We tried different things.
We changed the PHP version from 7.4 to 7.2 then to 5.6. But this came with no success.
We reinstalled all the WordPress core as well. The result was still the same.
So we did some research here and there and the conclusion was a little bit surprising.
A corrupted database is the main culprit for the error.
Either a corrupted mysql export from the previous host or a corrupted import in the new host is the main cause making WordPress run to this error.
The solusion is obvious. We just need to repeat the migration process.
This time with more careful focusing on the database export-import process.
We can fix WordPress “You are currently editing the page that shows your latest posts” error by simply reimporting the database.
We tried it and the error gone.
