Hey Lula,

It sounds though Abie may have given you the best advice. So, SIteSupport SHOULD be able to fix this for you.

In searching your question on Google, it appears that several users have experienced the very same issue. See screen print below...

The very first post explains that it appears to be permissions with your WordPress folders.

However, if you want to learn to resolve such issues, simply repeat the search shown in the screen print below, then read through the post offered as number 1 in your search results.

Hope you find this helpful.

You have some good suggestions here. The one thing I would add is to check and be sure the plugin is compatible with the theme you are using. I have seen conflicting plugins have similar problems in the past.

Which plugin is giving you this issue, by the way? Perhaps we can suggest an alternative for you.

Good luck, Shannon

With the Pro version you would definitely have Elementor's support available to you. If the problem persists I would contact them and see if they have any suggestions for a fix.

If a plugin gives this kind of issues, I myself would look for an alternative. But that's me.

Hello Luc and thank you.
No alternative it is a web page builder pro plugin.
Wishing you a great day.

There are actually several page builders out there besides Elementor (i.e. Beaver Builder, Divi Builder) but since you have already paid to upgrade to Elementor Pro, I wouldn't think you would be in the market to find another.

Hi, try deactivate delete and reinstall again. If still unsuccessful I'd reach out to their support.

I'd also try reach out to site support there if they can help
