    WordPress Requiring index.php for Permalinks 

    If you are creating a new WordPress site on a server already running others and you’re not able to access permalinks that are specified without index.php in them, you may have AllowOverride off in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

    You can specifically enable it with a Directory directive to allow overrides (in .htaccess, which is where WordPress will place them.)

    # /etc/apache/apache2.conf
            Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
            AllowOverride All
            Require all granted
    # `service apache2 reload` after saving

    WordPress Visual Editor Frustratingly not Working on New Install 

    Dude, Where’s my WordPress Visual Editor?

    I had a new install of WordPress with a manually added user, and ended up in a state in which I couldn’t enable (or disable) the WordPress visual editor or add blocks to my posts.

    Disable WordPress Visual Editor

    It turns out the manually added user that I was using was missing a nickname and the user profile changes wouldn’t save.

    Nickname is required?

    Once I added a nickname, I was able to save and toggle the Visual Editor setting and now I magically have blocks and a visual editor.
