So Widgets Bundle Breaking Site

After updating the SO Widgets Bundle plugin to the newest version (1.17.7) and doing some testing, I’ve found that this is the plugin that keeps breaking my site. Has anyone else experienced this issue? I am not an expert in the technical side of things and would appreciate any advice on how to get this plugin to work. I am currently running WordPress version 5.5.1. Thanks!

    Hi Jenn

    Thanks for reaching out.

    Try starting with the Widgets Bundle as your base. Here is how that test would go:

    * Temporarily switch to Twenty Twenty theme.
    * Temporarily deactivate all plugins not authored by SiteOrigin.
    * In this state, does the issue persist? If the issue does not persist in this state, you’ve found a working baseline. Activate your theme, then activate your plugins, one by one, testing for the issue after each activation.

    Hi Andrew, thanks for the response. It was helpful. I temporarily switched to Twenty Twenty theme and activated the SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle plugin. It did not break the site, so I then switched back to the Dentalia theme with no issues. I started activating my plugins one by one and have everything activated EXCEPT the Dentalia Theme Plugin. When I try to activate that one, I get the critical error again. Any ideas what to try next?

    Thanks for the update. I’m glad to hear you’re making progress. You could confirm the conflict by temporarily deactivating all plugins except for the Widgets Bundle and the theme plugin. In that state, does the issue persist? If so, it would be best to find out what the error is. If you have a bit of a technical background, you could enable WP_DEBUG in your WordPress wp-config.php file. The error will then be printed on the site front-end when it occurs. You can also set up error logging if you’d like the errors to write to a log file. Here is how that can be done https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-set-up-wordpress-error-logs-in-wp-config/.
