Rife Pro Causing Critical Error on Website

in Rife Posts: 13

We keep experiencing a critical error on our WordPress sites with Rife Pro with the below error message. We have tried rolling back to an older version of the site that was backed up and turning off all auto-update features; however, this issue still keeps happening. I have backed up and rolled back our site probably 5 or 6 times now with no improvement. Any he;p would be greatly appreciated. I can also give you admin access to the site if the admin portal is working.

WordPress version 6.1.1
Active theme: Rife Pro (version
Current plugin: (version )
PHP version 8.0.26

    Hey :-)

    It is unusual for this to happen.
    Looks like some things for updates are blocked or modified that it later creates this error when Rife tries to check for updates.

    Anyway, try adding this protection in the code and I will add it to the next updates as well:
    file rife/advance/inc/theme-update-checker.php:187
    change this
    if ( isset($state->update) && !empty($state->update) ){
    to this
    if ( isset($state->update) && !empty($state->update) && !empty($updates->response) ){

    With kind regards.

    Perfect! Do you have a specific place I can go to download the ZIP of the most recent Rife Pro theme so I can manually update my site theme? I have tried doing it via wordpress theme updates and it give me a "forbidden" error. I was going to try manually doing the update but I cannot find the newest download version. I checked Themeforest and I don't see it there. Thanks.
