Plugin Loading Issues are usually difficult to track down, especially when they’re only seen on a single site. We only know of one reason that’s known to cause these issues. Otherwise, the loading is caused by bugs in our plugin. This means that our developers will need to get a closer look.

Plugin loading issues are usually seen as:

  • An “Oh for fox sake” screen.
  • “Communication Lost” error message.
  • Never-ending loading issues.

Permalink Compatibility

One reason you might be having loading issues is that your permalink settings are incompatible with our plugin.

The Plain setting is known to cause loading issues with SSA and other plugins. Or, if you’re using a Custom Structure, double-check to ensure there are no mistakes.

The WordPress API, in general, doesn’t work when you’re using Plain – this is most likely going to affect other plugins as well, not just SSA.

How to Change Your Permalink Settings

To change your WordPress permalink settings, go to Settings > Permalinks and make sure your site doesn’t have Plain selected.

Let Our Developers Troubleshoot

The quickest way our support team can resolve these issues is if you grant us a temporary admin user.

After we resolve your issue, feel free to remove the user. This is why we say it’s temporary!


We will never make any changes to your theme or other plugins without your permission. Though, we may install the Plugin Detective to find any plugin conflicts or make changes to SSA itself.

We always follow up with you on the issue we find and what we did to solve it. Or, sometimes, it will need to be solved by another plugin dev or your host.
