    Thanks for using our tools!

    I see from your site that you are running version 2.4.0 which is not the latest one. What I would first recommend is to use the latest version. As your access to updates has expired last year in April, you would have to renew access here https://www.itthinx.com/shop/widgets-control-pro/ and update to the latest release. If the issue still persists after that, we would have to look at your site’s debug.log to see if there might be any conflict.

    Kind regards
