    After I upgraded the Editor and Menu Access plugin to 3.1 my web site crashes with the following log message:

    I get the same error with the latest version of the plugin.



    I have WordPress version 5.7.2 and the latest update of Editor Menu and Widget Access (3.1) and I also get the same error message.



    I have got the same issue



    I’m getting the same error as well on a number of sites. Have disabled the plugin so I can get my sites back online.



    Yep same error on five sites using this 3.1 version crashed.



    The 3.1 update seems to only work if the WooCommerce plugin is also installed as it adds the Shop Manager role.



    Getting the same here



    I’m getting the same error




    Same here on multiple sites.



    I have the same problem after updating. If there is a solution for this, I would be grateful for a hint on how I can safely reactivate the plugin. At the moment I just disabled it completely in wordpress recovery mode.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Investigating now and will release a fix shortly.

    Thanks @guyprimavera – we’ve also had a few pages report critical errors this morning. All on 5.7.2 as well.

    No worries.

    New version with bugfix released. Please update to 3.1.1 and let me know if there are any issues.

    Sorry for the bug in the previous version guys, this update should resolve everything.


    Thanks @guyprimavera – i can confirm that on our installations the problem is fixed.

    Awesome, thanks for letting me know! I’ll mark this as resolved for now and re-open if anyone still has issues after updating.
