I apologize for the delay in getting this episode out to you. In this episode, John James Jacoby and I discussed a range of topics, including a caching bug introduced in WordPress 4.9 that causes Page Templates not to display for an hour. We talk about the possibilities of using Gutenberg with WooCommerce and how it could impact product management.
As is tradition, near the end of the show, we shared what we’re thankful for. We also shared what listeners are thankful for regarding open source.
This bug is causing some theme developers to rip their hair out. Weston Ruter explains why the change was implemented.

There are 2495 posts, 6197 comments, 231 tags, 26 categories, and 10 pages worth of WordPress dummy data, fully ready to import. That’s 3 (simulated) years worth of content. Note: There are ~1.6 GB of images (courtesy of Unsplash) attached to these posts. It’s a very good idea to import everything but the media in order to avoid timeouts or errors with the WordPress Importer.
