#49193 new defect (bug)

Parent Page selector not available in Page Attributes when using Block Editor

We're running a multisite with around 190 child sites on it.

When our users are using the block editor, the "Parent Page" drop down selector does not appear within the Page Attributes box.

I've tried using the default wordpress theme - same result.
Our test platform, on the same server with an identical configuration and plugin set but which only has a couple of child sites is not experiencing this problem - however, it does take a couple of seconds for this individual dropdown selector to load.

The other diference is that the multisite where the issue exists is showing an error in developer tools that says "Uncaught (in promise) SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 6

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

Replying to Brandicoot:

I've tried using the default wordpress theme - same result.

Does the issue still exist with all plugins disabled?
