Frequently Asked Questions
Was this a bug in OptimizePress?
Just like any other WordPress plugin or theme, it is common practice to use Scripts and Functions that are built into WordPress. Unfortunately changes to those scripts or their removal can cause issues with lots of plugins and themes which rely on them within their plugin/theme's code.
It's important to note that this issue with WordPress 4.9 only affects editing of your pages, the front-end of your pages (the pages your visitors see) still function without any issues.
Why is the update not showing available in my WordPress Dashboard?
If you do not see the update for OptimizePress 2.5.12 available within your WordPress Dashboard, please login to https://members.optimizepress.com and download the latest version.
If you do not see version 2.5.12 (or higher) in your members area this means you may have an expired Updates/Support license (you should see a notice regarding this as soon as you login).
I didn't know I had to renew my Updates/Support license (or didn't know it expired). How can I do that?
If your Updates/Support license expired, you will need to renew through the following link (or by clicking the renewal link in your members dashboard):
As you may be aware, all OptimizePress packages (Core, Publisher & Pro) include 1 year (12 months) of access to support and updates.
Why should I have to renew my updates/support license and pay to get my site working?
We will never close your account, and you can still license new sites and download the latest version of OptimizePress that was available at the time your updates/support expired.
