How to Fix WordPress Plugin Errors

Plugin errors affect WordPress in various ways. In the best possible way, an error message will display in the admin area that indicates the plugin causing the problem. In worse cases, errors will be displayed on your website, which may affect your branding.

Errors can occur after installing and updating plugin or after updating WordPress. The latter indicates that your plugin is not compatible with the current version of WordPress.

To fix plugin error, simply locate the plugin causing the problem and deactivate it. As mentioned, you can locate the faulty plugin as displayed in the error message. However, if the error message does not state the faulty plugin, you can manually locate the issue by deactivating all plugins, reactivating each one at a time while checking your WordPress site - whichever clashes with your site is the odd one out.

Step 1. From your browser, type in the URL box your domainname/wp-admin and hit Enter key from your keyboard.
