There has been a 'critical error' on this website
Last Update: Apr 13, 2023
Do not download and activate "Plugin Organizer".
It crashed my website.
I'm grateful to Wealthy Affiliate's SiteSupport team for helping me undo this mistake.
This happened innocently enough just by me wanting to increase my PageSpeed performance.
So, based on the recommendation from the maker of another performance 'Autoptimise' plugin that I use, I reviewed, downloaded and activated Plugin Organizer.
"There has been a critical error on this website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions." ... Was the message that immediately displayed.
"Well, that sucks." (heart racing)
All I could think was, "What just happened?",.. Did I download a virus?",.. "Is my computer at risk?".. "Am I going to have to start from scratch all over again?"
There wasn't anything I could do from there. I knew I had to contact SiteSupport for help, and sure enough, they did what was necessary by deactivating the plugin from the root directory.
I got my wp-admin area back and I was able to delete 'Plugin Organizer' myself (with great satisfaction!).
The point of my blog post today is to emphasize that issues like this will happen whether you're hosting your website at Wealthy Affiliate or at a different web host.
But, doesn't it feel good knowing that you can rely and depend upon the SiteSupport team, here at Wealthy Affiliate to help you out of whatever predicament you get yourself into?
