    Hi – I am getting the following error when trying to edit pages with Elementor:


    Warning: illegal string offset ‘pro_widgets’ in ********/wp-content/plugins/elementor/includes/api.php on line 160

    Notice: Uninitialized string offset: 0 in ********/wp-content/plugins/elementor/includes/api.php on line 160


    When I try to make a change to page content in Elementor, I am getting intermittent issues. Some of the time I get the edit interface just not loading (faded with a spinner graphic – see attached grab), or other times it does load, but then when I make an amendment it shows me a 500 error.

    I understand that this is probably an Elementor bug as opposed to a Jupiter bug – but have you got any idea on best course of action please?

    NB: This is just a single one page web site currently + I have switched WP debugging on.

    I see that you are using old theme version 1.6.0. Please update your theme to the latest version and then check if the issue persists.

    How to update the theme you can find in these articles:
    1. Automatic update ​https://themes.artbees.net/docs/updating-jupiter-x-theme-automatically/

    2. Updating via WP Dashboard ​https://themes.artbees.net/docs/updating-jupiter-x-theme-via-wordpress-dashboard/

    3. Updating via FTP ​https://themes.artbees.net/docs/updating-jupiter-x-theme-via-ftp/

    Important! Don’t forget to create full site backup including the database before starting the update process.

    Hello Melwyn,


    These are not the errors, these are the warnings that won’t cause any issue. You can disable these warnings following this article https://aristath.github.io/blog/wp-hide-php-errors

    Could you please tell me if you see/face any other problem (like Elementor not working etc) except from these 2 warnings/notices?

    I also have the same issue on several sites running latest versions of both.

    I have temporarily resolved the issue on one site by rolling elementor back to 3.3.1 and adding the debug code to the config file as mentioned above. It’s not a permanent solution, but its working at the moment.

    Hi Jennifer

    If those are warning you can ignore them and turn off the debug display as you did.
