A screenshot of the 'Saving Failed' error repeated four times on the WordPress Site Editor.

Saving Failed (WordPress / Dreamhost fix)

On a Dreamhost site, you might get the error “Saving Failed” in the Site Editor. I got it after trying to save some typography styles. @saulornelas on the wordpress.org forum found a fix, which was to disable the Firewall setting at Dreamhost. That setting is under Websites > Manage Websites > Your Website’s Name > Manage Website > Web Options (bottom of the page) > Disable Firewall.

NOTE: Disabling the Firewall comes with risks. You’re on your own, kid!
