WordPress Update Causing Sites to Break, 6.2.1 Released to Fix The Issue

A recent WordPress security update featuring multiple security fixes is also causing some sites to stop functioning.

The update removed a key functionality that caused numerous plugins to stop working on sites that use the WordPress blocks system.

Affected plugins ranged from forms to sliders to breadcrumbs.

WordPress released an update late on Friday to address the flawed security patch.

WordPress 6.2.1 Update

Sites that support automatic background updates automatically received the WordPress 6.2.1 update because it was a Security Release (officially it was a maintenance & security Release).
