The following post highlights another WordPress fix that many of you have come across – “Error Loading Resource”. Since the platform is easy to use, there is no need to assume that all WordPress users are technically flawless. Many non-tech professionals find it difficult to figure out which resource or file is not loading, and more importantly, why?
In all fairness the error is pretty hard to fix as it can be caused by various issues like plugin compatibility issues and HTTPS URL issues and more. Basically, I’d like to ask you to investigate some of the causes of this error and provide some possible solutions to fix the error. Now for those who have never been familiar with the “Failed to load the resource” error – we all know that WordPress systems, plugins and themes run on PHP scripts that automatically make requests to communicate with those stored on your server Send resources. If something interferes with these requests, the platform cannot get the resources. In this case, problems usually arise, e.g. B. the error “Resource could not be loaded”.
Assuming the browser cannot load a certain file, the page is displayed without that file. The browser also inserts a message into the error console for debugging purposes.
- Error loading the resource network :: ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED
- Error loading resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (not found).
- Error loading the resource: The server responded with the status 500 (internal server error).
- Error loading the resource: net :: err_name_not_resolved
If the particular file could not be loaded, the rest of your webpage will continue to load. The chances are pretty high that it looks or behaves as expected. It is time to fix the problem so that you can avoid unexpected problems.
# 1 Replace the missing resource
Let’s start with the basics first! One of the most common reasons found. The missing resource is an image on one of your blog posts or pages. Then try looking for it in the media library. If you can see the media library, try adding it again by editing the post or page. If you can’t see the file in the media library, try uploading it again. There may be times when incorrect images or empty fields appear in the media library instead of images. In this case, you may need to correct the file permissions. For detailed instructions, see our tutorial on how to troubleshoot uploading images in WordPress.
# 2 Replace theme or plugin files
If the failed resource is a WordPress plugin or theme file, the easiest way to replace it is to reinstall the plugin or theme. First, you need to deactivate your current WordPress theme. All you need to do is visit the Presentation »Topics page.
If you don’t want to activate the theme installed on your website, you can just activate it. This will disable your current topic. If you don’t have a different theme installed, you’ll need to install a default theme. Once you activate the other theme, you can visit your website to see if the error has been fixed or not. If the missing resource is a WordPress plugin file, you will need to reinstall the plugin. You might also be interested to know that you can use FTP to connect to your WordPress hosting account and manually replace a specific file. For more information, see our guide on using FTP.
# 3 correcting the url
Last but not least, the failed resource error is incorrect WordPress url setting. So you need to look for the WordPress Address and Site Address options on the Settings »General page.
Here you need to make sure that both urls are correct and that you need to have the same urls for both options. Always remember that WordPress treats WWW and non-WWW URLs as two different addresses. If you’ve enabled SSL on your website, your URLs should start with https instead of HTTP.
