    @clorith Our IT team has had success. We can now add code to the functions.php file. It was down to certain things being blocked on the web application firewall.

    Here is an explanation from the team, this may be specific to AWS and our setup of environments, but it may help others in the same situation:

    ‘We were blocking the everything except trusted IPs on the WAF to admin pages and wp-login and only allowing these trusted IPs onto the network in the VPC therefore not allowing loopback. We allowed the public EIP that the NAT Gateway uses to access the internet into both the public subnets (Load-Balancer) via Security Group rule and to the Whitelist that bypasses all WAF rules. Loopback now works and so does the editor’

    Thanks for the help.
