Content Editor not loading

Tobias dJ. Nov 22, 2018 12:39PM CET

unfortunately there is an issue with the content editor: the menu bar is loading but the content of the webpage is not showing up (only the pre-load sign).
I tried several solutions but I couldn't fix it.

Thank you.

Hey Tobias

Happy to help! I know there’s nothing more maddening than that endless spinner.

Did you install SSL security on your site recently (switch from http// to https//?)
That’s what usually causes this issue.

To fix it, simply update your site and Wordpress URL settings under Settings > General in the Wordpress admin area to include the additional “s” in the URL. And if you are using self-hosted fonts, you will want to update the absolute URL paths as well.

Hope this helps, if not, let us know

Hey Tobias,
thanks for your answer.
All URL paths were updated to https// several months ago and the content editor worked fine.
It just appeared now that it won't work anymore.

Hey Tobias

Damn alright, then it’s probably something else. We usually rarely have this issue
unless it’s something weird with the server config.

Do you know when this issue started? Was it after a fresh install or just out of the blue?
Was there anything you changed before this happened by any chance?
