    Hi jasonblewis,

    Hope you’re doing well today.

    I checked your site and immediately noticed that there’s a MarketPress notification in your dashboard:

    MarketPress requires a database update to continue working correctly.

    Can you create a backup of your site and then perform the database update and see if the issue is gone after that?

    Best regards,


Thank NAME, for their help.
