Activating Plugin Broke Joomla 3.3.6

Post by Celliven » Mon Apr 19, 2021 5:28 am

Hi All
I am running Joomla 3.3.6 and installed the plugin to add PDF content.
When I enabled the "Button - Embed PDF", it has caused everything I do to return "This page isn't working".

I try to disable the plugin, though all I get is "This page isn't working".

I am guessing that the plugin isn't compatible with V3.3.6....

Does anyone know how to get out of this?

Thanks in advance

Chris

Welcome to Joomla forum!

Before trying to solve a software issue, make sure that you are using the most recent software.

Joomla 3.3.6 has been released on October 2014. Spending your time on an issue that might have been resolved with a software update within the last 6.5 years, is not worth your time. Furthermore there have been a couple of security patches to secure your website.

I would backup the current website (files + database), upgrade to the latest version (Joomla 3.9.26 at the moment) and test the PDF plugin again. Also make sure that all your installed non-core extensions are up-to-date.

There are three ways to disable a plugin in Joomla!: see https://www.joomlashack.com/blog/tutori ... la-plugin/

Are we talking about this plugin: PDF Embed ???
