Perhaps the problem will be solved by one of the following solutions. Please try this and let us know. Thank you!
- Please try to clear your browser’s cache. Every web browser stores a cache of the websites you visit (pages, images, and etc.) to reduce bandwidth usage and server load.
- Please try to clear your website’s cache created by any kind of caching system, it could be a WordPress plugin or a web service such as the CloudFlare.
- Please try to re-login to your WordPress website.
- Please try to restart your computer or try on another computer.
- Please try to temporarily disable all other plugins and сheck if the issue persists. If the problem is gone, then the problem is in conflict with another plugin installed on your WordPress website.
- Please try to temporarily change the theme to the WordPress built-in theme “Twenty Nineteen” and сheck if the issue persists. If the problem is gone, then the problem is in conflict with the theme installed on your WordPress website.
The last WordPress update is preventing me from editing my website that is using this plugin. Why is this?
This plugin can not cause such problem. More likely, the problem are related to the settings of the website. It could just be a cache, so please try to clear your website’s cache (may be you using a caching plugin, or some web service such as the CloudFlare) and then the cache of your web browser. Also please try to re-login to the website, this too can help.
