  • Hi,
    In my case this is not a page, an url that is blocked by BBQ, this is a fonctionality.
    The Mega menu is blocked by BBQ and can’t load the category and the images.
    Pass your mouse on the menu and you’ll see :

    Here is the page of the demo, with the mega menu loading well:

    @van74 yeah somewhere under the hood there is a URL that is blocked. The trick is using code inspector or similar to determine the underlying URL(s).

    Hi Jeff,

    I apologize i’m not competent enough to debug this, and BBQ is hardly recommanded by my Nginx server.

    Here is the console error :
    [HTTP/2 403 Forbidden 254ms]

    Requete :

    In the code i have :
    <script type=”text/javascript”>
    var jnews_ajax_url = ‘/?ajax-request=jnews’
    This is what is blocked by BBQ i think.
    Maybe it’s here that the megamenu loading has an issue..

    Hi @van74, thank you for the infos. Nothing in the reported request is blocked by BBQ:


    Most likely the issue is due to the actual request content that is being sent via Ajax (as reported by @ab473code). This definitely is on the list, will investigate more for the next plugin update.
