I'm using WordPress version 4.5. Unfortunately I can't update the core because of one the plugins I'm using.

    Hi Granite ,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    From what I searched in the support forum, this issue may be related to the outdated version of WordPress, because it was always solved after upgrade WordPress (at least to the 4.7 version).

    I will strongly advise to update WordPress, at least, because it's a security risk.

    However, I am not sure if we can overcome this issue on your WordPress version, so, I would like to flag the SLS team (our code experts ).

    To do this, can you please send us the FTP details of your website, so that the SLS can investigate further? Please send it privately through our contact form:

    Send in:
    Subject: "Attn: Luis Lopes"
    - WordPress admin username
    - WordPress admin password
    - Login url
    - FTP credentials (host/username/password)
    - Link back to this thread for reference
    - Any other relevant urls/information

    Cheers, Luís
