  3. Magento WebP Image Conversion Takes To Long

    If you use Magento 2 WebP Images Extension and the CLI conversion by the bin/magento magefan:webp:convert command is run very long, the issue may be in cwebp library on your server.

  5. Issue: Redirect to Admin Dashboard after Saving the Blog Post [Fixed]

    If you save a post in Magento 2 Blog, your post is not saved and you are redirected to the Magento dashboard, most likely it happens when the post has a lot of related products or posts. This issue is connected with your server PHP configurations. 

    The max_input_vars PHP setting parameter defines the number of requests (posts) data PHP can receive. When a blog post has many related posts or products a lot of data goes with the request to PHP and it just doesn't receive part of this data.

    In order to fix the issues with post saving:

    1. Change the value of the max_input_vars parameter from 1000 to 5000 in the main php.ini file on your server.

    2. Restart the Apache/Nginx or PHP-FPM if it is used.

    Note: you need to have the superuser server permissions to be able to change this
