So if I upgrade to the version 9 of the software I basically have to start over with my design, is that correct?
Yes, you are correct.
Also I found out I’m using the latest version of MySQL and I still can’t get the premiumpress page builder to work. I also tried moving back to php7.1 but it still didn’t work.
Hard to say then without going over everything. I haven’t seen anything within the theme code that would cause this. Was anything removed from the errors above before posting?
I’m curious, does the problem still exist if Banners/Advertisement is turned off or if all non-PP plugins are turned off?
