Social Warfare is causing occasional 50x Errors & should be disabled

Hi all,

If you use some of the most popular themes and plugins, it’s been a rough couple weeks in WordPress land.

First the Genesis theme had a bad update – 2.5.1. Next a new major version of WordPress was released – 4.8. That’s not a bad thing in itself, but it takes a bit for plugin authors to catch up with changes in WordPress. Automattic released a new major version of Jetpack. And finally the Social Warfare plugin broke hard.

If you want to read about the Social Warfare bug, here’s a link to the report – We recommend disabling the plugin until the next update. (For those keeping track, this is the second time the plugin has broken in a bad way.)

We’re not convinced Social Warfare is the only source of the 50x errors (Server Unavailable or Internal Server errors), so will continue to seek out the gremlins.

Thanks for hosting with us,
