    Hi,

    WP 5.0 invoicing Version 1.0.6

    Whilst doing some fault finding using “WP Health Check” to try to fix a Ninja Forms error (form hangs on “processing” for ever), I discovered that Invoicing Core 1.06 is throwing up the error as attached. I can confirm that deactivating invoicing makes the problem go away and re-activating brings it back.

    Background updates	A plugin has prevented updates by <strong>disabling wp_version_check()</strong>.
    Loopback request	The loopback request to your site failed, this may prevent WP_Cron from working, along with theme and plugin editors.
    Error encountered: (0) cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 10001 milliseconds with 0 bytes received.

    Any thoughts, comments or solutions gratefully received!

    Hi Nigel,

    This error may or may not be due to WPInvoicing plugin. We need to troubleshoot for that. First of all, can you let me know if your site is directly accessible to users or you have some HTTP authentication enabled? If the HTTP authentication is enabled on your site then this error will come as loopback request from health check plugin will fail.

    Please let me know admin details and FTP details in private reply to troubleshoot more for your site.

    Regards,
    Patrik

    Hi,

    I have added the following CSS which fixes the font awesome loading issues almost everywhere in frontend:

    .su-spoiler-icon{
        font-family: "Font Awesome 5 Free" !important;
    }

    Please note this will fix FA issue for Shortcodes Ultimate plugin only.

    Regards,
    Patrik

    Patrik,

    Thanks for your efforts but the additional css seems to have created other FA-related issues elsewhere and I’m certain my servers allow PHP sessions as I have many instances of WP “cart” functions running trouble-free on those servers. I will however try adding

    define('WPINV_USE_PHP_SESSIONS', false);

    to the WP config file. I think my best solution is to find an alternative to Font Awesome, although being so widely used, that will be a challenge and I have other plugins which also use FA extensively. I think also I will need to find an alternative to “Invoicing” which is a great shame as it has a lot of promise and integrates well (in theory) to Geo Directory. I have a deadline of the middle of January to get this site working for a client and cannot afford the time to spend continually fault-finding. Again, thank you for your efforts.

    … you know, despite what I said above, ‘define(‘WPINV_USE_PHP_SESSIONS’, false);’ seems to have fixed the major problems. Did you add it to wp-config or was it always there?

    I still need to find a FA remedy but, hey. Thanks again, it looks like “Invoicing” will be staying 😉

    Hi,

    I have added it to wp-config.php file only. Regarding FA, I would suggest you contact the plugin author to update the font awesome to the latest version or at least they can provide you with the other working solution.

    We have tried best to integrate all our 3 main plugins Geodirectory, Invoicing and UsersWP work together but if you find any issues then just let us know here and we will reply you asap.

    Regards,
    Patrik
