Support » Plugin: Beaver Builder - WordPress Page Builder » Updated to breaks my site

  • Resolved sharkfinn


    Hi Support,

    We have, BB lite, Vamtam Theme, WP 6.03, WC 7.0.0 and all other plugins are up to date.

    After updating to BB, the system prompted :

    ” There has been a critical error on this website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions.

    Learn more about troubleshooting WordPress.”

    The site was running well before this update. Right now, we have to deactivate the BB plug in so the site can function, but with broken header, footer and layout.

    Could you give us some advice to fix this ?
    Thank you for your help.

  • Updated to breaks my site => mee to…

    I had to restore a backup of my site and block automatic updates

    Same for me, the site is broken after the update. I also restored a backup.
    I use WP 6.0.3, WP Rocket, VamTam Builder.

    Unfortunatly Vantam themes are not compatibale with version 2.6 and they refused to fix the issue or add support.

    Lucky for you though I did fix the issue late late night and we will release a fix later today with the following code added that stops the vantam fatal error.

    for now add this to your child theme functions.php

    add_action( 'after_setup_theme', function() {
    	add_filter( 'vamtam_less_vars', function( $vars ) {
    		if ( isset( $vars['beaver-global'] ) ) {
    			foreach( $vars['beaver-global'] as $k => $var ) {
    				if ( is_object( $var ) || is_array( $var ) ) {
    					unset( $vars['beaver-global'][$k] );
    		return $vars;

    We are facing a similar issue with beaver builder
    Do we have any fix for this? or just have to wait for the update of the beaver builder plugin?

    @pratikshelke see the comment right above yours for a workaround.

    @pratikshelke You can add the fix mentioned by @pross above or wait until we push out an update. I would also advise you to get in touch with VamTam themes as this would be best fixed on their end. Our fix is more of a bandaid for the problem.

    If they are going to fix it contrary to what we’ve been told, then we’d wait on pushing out our update.

    thank you, its working now.

    Thanks for this helpful thread – I’m glad that Vantam did push out an update which fixed things for me too, but just wanted to shout out to the helpful support from you guys!

    Wait, they fixed it?

    They def released an update today and with it installed I could update BB Lite without a fatal error so I believe so (even tho the Changelog did not specifically call this issue out).

    Well thanks for letting us know, that means we dont have to release an update now!
