Error and a blank screen issue after MEC plugin update might happen due to faults in root and directory in the cPanel. So, First of all please read this post thoroughly.
What to do after you Updated MEC and faced an error and a blank screen?
This error will be resolved if you follow the steps below:
1- Please log in to cPanel or FTP
2- Go to this directory: ~root of the website / wp-content/plugins
3- After that delete completely this folder “modern-events-calendar-lite”.
Note: don’t worry all your data is saved in the database!
4- Then, download the plugin .zip file. / and if you use the PRO version just go to Webnus dashboard > Download tab and download MEC again).
5- If you use cPanel just upload it to the above directory and extract it there.
If you use FTP access because you cannot extract zip file there, you can go to WordPress dashboard > Plugins and upload again Modern-Events-Calendar-Lite.
By now your issue should have been fixed, just need to log in to your WordPress dashboard and use it same as before.
After deleting Modern-Events-Calendar-Lite your WordPress access would be back, so you can get a backup with extra plugins then.
To put it simply, a PHP file changed the encoding and that’s why the error occured. If you upload MEC again the encoding will be back to its previous state.
An error and a blank screen issue after MEC plugin update will be fixed during the first minutes of the update on the same version. Also, a Manual update will fix the problem.
If you have any other questions, I’ll be more than happy to help.
I did all of the above and when trying to Activate the plugin again I still had the same error message as before:
Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘->’ (T_OBJECT_OPERATOR) in /home/thesu641/public_html/wp-content/plugins/modern-events-calendar-lite/app/libraries/render.php on line 1009
What do I do now? Thank you.
– make sure you have the right WP settings
– make sure you don’t have any conflict
for troubleshooting, deactivate all your plugins and let the MEC remains active only, set your theme on default, then reload the page, if the issue was solved, then activate your plugins one by one and your theme, refresh your page and check to see which plugin is causing the issue.
if the issue remains, please go to support.webnus.net and there you can log in or sign up. to create a new ticket, simply head over to webnus.net/support and click on ‘Create a Ticket’ and share the required information.
Hello there. I did this and it worked but now I don’t have dark mode. Can you point me to a link to download the latest version with dark mode that worked with the slider? Is this all going to be fixed in the next update? thank you!
There is no problem with the dark mode at this time. please download the latest version.
if you use the PRO version just go to the webnus.net dashboard > download tab and download MEC again). The correct version should be v.5.2.5
if you use the lite version you can download the plugin here or in the WordPress dashboard.
I followed these steps and I’m still experiencing the problem. Any other suggestions?
Sorry about that, I update download link above, please try again.
