WordPress 5.9 & Simple:Press Forums

WordPress 5.9 introduced a new type of theme – the Full Site Editing theme where all components of the theme (including headers and footers) are blocks.

This is a radical change to WordPress themes.

But, the good news for Simple:Press is that we can still work with these new themes with a couple of minor adjustments to the Simple:Press settings.

These settings are:

  • Force The Strict Use of the WP API
  • Limit Forum Display to Within WP Loop
  • Bypass wp_head action complete requirement

All three settings are located at the bottom of the FORUM->INTEGRATION->PAGE & PERMALINK page.

All three items must be enabled!

Simple:Press Version 6.6.5

We’ve published an update to Simple:Press that will automatically turn on these flags if a Block Theme (FSE Theme) is enabled at the time the plugin is installed.

However, if you switch back to a classic theme you will need to turn off these options.

Or if you switch from a classic theme to a Block theme, you will need to turn on these options yourself.
