Hey Howard,

You need to be running WordPress v5.1.1. Using WordPress 4.8 could eventually take your site down again with another well updated plugin and/or theme.

Yes, I know I need to make the leap. This is the first issue I have had. But my site is getting so large that I know I need to update to the latest WP version.

I'll follow your advice and do that soon!

Thanks for stopping by Marion!
