• I installed this plugin on a site a couple weeks ago, and ever since then I’ve been getting this error when I try to edit a page or post.

    I reached out to my host who said it looked like an issue with this plugin, but they suggested I deactivate my security plugin, clear the cache, and see if that fixes it – it didn’t. I’ve been able to get rid of the error message by deactivating the accessibility checker plugin, but I’d like to keep it. I removed the domain name but can share it if that’s helpful. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hi @jesskenn44,

    It looks like the server is blocking the Accessibility Checker from being able to scan the page. Is your site password protected or using a maintenance mode plugin?

    It’s not password protected nor am I using a maintenance mode plugin. Any other ideas? Thanks!

    Hi @jesskenn44,

    I’ve reviewed your System Info. It appears your site isn’t password protected any more so can you remove the Authorization Username and Password from the Accessibility Checker settings page and try to save a page/post again?

    Also, I see you have the Classic Editor plugin install and active. Are you using the classic editor on the page/post your are getting the error message on?

    Hey Steve,

    I don’t have a username/password set, but my password manager fills the blanks in automatically when I open the page. I deleted them and saved changes, but they re-fill each time the page re-loads. But they’re not saved that way. The error is still appearing.

    I do have the Classic Editor plugin installed/active and do use it, it’s used on some pages/posts but not all (many are built with blocks). The error is showing up regardless if the post/page is built/edited with Classic or Block Editor.

    I just installed Accessibility Checker on another client site, no Classic Editor plugin installed, and am having what looks to be this same error message (although it disappears too quickly with the Block Editor loading vs. Classic to copy/paste the text here). But it looks to be the same issue.

    Thanks for any insight!
