Theme reverting posts to old content, wont allow any content update


I have a strange issue, where I am updating pages/posts and the changes are not being reflected. No caching, and also loading site in incognito tab after saving the new post version.

If I revert to the default WordPress theme, the post will show the updated version correctly. As soon as I activate Astrid (or my Astrid Child), the previous post draft shows. My site is basically stuck so I cannot update any content.

Interestingly, I updated the footer content and this is shown correctly which is even more bizarre.

Any idea what is causing this bizarre bug?


Hello there,

Do you have active site caching plugin? If so, what will happen if you flush and temporarily disable it?
