Hi there,

We’ll need the error being thrown on that request to see what is going on. Your host will usually have a section within your control panel to view errors, can you check there and see what is being thrown when you load that page?

Or, if you add this to your sites wp-config.php file:

(The file will already have something like define( 'WP_DEBUG', false );, that snippet replaces that single line)

We can then check for an error log on your site.

OK, I’ve added that code to the config file. You can go to:

That page is not accessible from anywhere else, but shows the critical error.

Ok, so its from the custom espresso-events-table-template.template.php you have in wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates/

On line 77 you likely have something like $category_slugs = '';

If so, change that to $category_slugs = array();

We fixed that template in the add-on itself a while ago but looks like you have an older version in your uploads folder.
