Cornerstone & WP Engine - unable to edit/change anything

I recently migrated my site over to WPEngine and I now can’t edit my site at all through Cornerstone. Once I hit save it says ‘Success’, but no changes are made. I know that there are conflicts with WP Engine, but after trying some things I am still at a loss. I have tried:

Updating everything. Here is what I am running:
Wordpress 5.7
X version 8.2.3
Cornerstone and all plugins are up-to-date

Turning off and on plugins to see if there is a conflict

Saving through Cornerstone, then immediately purging the cache on the WP Engine part of the backend

Contacting WP Engine regarding caching on their end and they are stumped.

Please assist or advise!

Hello @elizawhitney,

Thanks for writing to us.

It seems that there might be an issue of plugin conflict or cache issue. I would suggest you troubleshoot with a few of the common issues before we investigate your settings.

  1. Testing For Theme Related Issue
  2. Testing For Plugin Conflict
  3. Theme Update
  4. Child Theme
  5. Css/Js Customization
  6. Increasing Php Memory Limit
  7. Disabling Cache
  8. Disabling Cdn
  9. Permalinks
  10. Version Compatibility

If none of those work, It would be best if you could copying your live website to your staging area. and send your details in a secure note so that we can investigate your setting without breaking your live site. Please provide the following details

  • WordPress Login URL
  • Admin level username and password
  • FTP Details

You can find the Secure Note button at the bottom of your posts
