I received an email advising that I should update my Simple:Press Plugin (v5.7.5.3) to v6.8.2 but I don’t see a link in my plugins page to do so.

Can someone point me to how to update?

TIA

Hi:

Support for Simple:Press v 5.x ended a long long time ago.  But, you can still find documentation on how to upgrade here: https://simple-press.com/docum…..rsion-6-x/

Thank you. Got it mostly figured out EXCEPT… for when I try to activate it I get the following error:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function sp_ban_do_sp_activate() in /home1/freelax4/public_html/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-plugins/ban/sp-ban-plugin.php:123 Stack trace: #0 /home1/freelax4/public_html/wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php(308): sp_ban_sp_activate(”) #1 /home1/freelax4/public_html/wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php(332): WP_Hook->apply_filters(”, Array) #2 /home1/freelax4/public_html/wp-includes/plugin.php(517): WP_Hook->do_action(Array) #3 /home1/freelax4/public_html/wp-content/plugins/simplepress/sp-startup/admin/spa-admin-support-functions.php(227): do_action(‘sph_activated’) #4 /home1/freelax4/public_html/wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php(308): spa_activate_plugin(”) #5 /home1/freelax4/public_html/wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php(332): WP_Hook->apply_filters(”, Array) #6 /home1/freelax4/public_html/wp-includes/plugin.php(517): WP_Hook->do_action(Array) #7 /home1/freelax4/public_html/wp-admin/plugins.php(194): do_action(‘activate_simple…’) #8 {main} thrown in /home1/freelax4/public_html/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-plugins/ban/sp-ban-plugin.php on line 123

Are you running the most recent versions of the simple:press add-on plugins and themes?

I’m not running SP at all, it won’t activate.

I’m running WordPress 6.1.1.

I’ll try deactivating all the plugins again and try reactivating it again.

Simple:Press plugins and WordPress plugins (and themes) are different things.  It sounds like you didn’t deactivate your Simple:Press plugins and themes before upgrading.  So you have two choices:

– Apply the latest simple:press plugins using sFTP or

– Restore from a backup and go through the process again, making sure you follow the steps outlined in the upgrade documentation related to deactivating things before upgrading.

I removed the sp-ban-plugin, simple press now loads but the admin menu doesn’t respond to clicks…

It’s possible it’s not loading the latest js and css scripts.  Use CTRL-F5 to force a full reload.

If that doesn’t resolve the issue, you’re probably experiencing a conflict with another plugin – check the browser CONSOLE to see if there are any JS errors.

I was able to get it up and running finally. Had to play with the plugins for a while and download some new ones to replace some that were way obsolete.

Only problem I see now is that when I try to download files including backups of the site my antivirus gives me an error saying a threat was removed and that it couldn’t read the source file.
