Testing a new 9.0.7 installation with Wampserver after running Setup Wizard and accepting all defaults brought the following error:

Expand: Critical error – bailing out Critical error – bailing out

Tested also with live hosting new install for same result.

Removing Side_News_categories listing Block eliminated error.

Same problem occur after manually trying to install same block and preview:

FYI: This error does not occur with version 9.0.6

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
