This latest release contains fixes for several issues so be sure to check out the changelog:

After doing the updates, always remember to clear all caches (if you are using WP Rocket, WP SuperCache or W3 Total Cache) when updating so that the code from the latest release is always in use. This will help you to avoid any potential errors.

If nothing is helping, provide us access to your site so that we can check your settings. Please create a secure note with the following info:

Please let us know how it goes.

Everything is up to date but the PHP. Waiting on our host to update and we’ll see if that rectifies the issue.

Hi Michael,

Just let us know how it goes.
