Thanks for the system report, Russ.

The issue with the Pro Reports tokens is most likely caused by the out-of-date version of the extension. Please update to the latest version 4.0.12 and see if that helps.

As for the issue with updating MainWP Extensions - please try activating the extensions API by following this help article, and then try updating them again.

mainwp is already up to date, there are no updates available.
it is currently on Version 4.3.1

the API is already activated, I activated this back when I originally installed mainwp

The very likely issue here is the outdated Pro Reports, which according to your system report is version 4.0.10.

Please try re-activating the extensions API again by following this help article, and then try updating extensions again.

ok I have done that,
On the extensions page how can I tell which ones are free and which ones are pro, so I can disable all the pro extensions?
As this is no doubt causing some confusion, as the pro extensions are obviously not going to update.

Correct, the Pro extensions, which include Pro Reports, will not get updates if you are not subscribed to our Pro plan.

When you click on the Install Extensions button on the Dashboard > Extensions page, you will see Pro extensions labeled as such.

You can also find a list of all extension at this URL, where they are also labeled as either Free or Pro.

I am referring to this page specifically, as they are already installed, thus why I am getting the updates issue.
I’m not trying to install anything.

In that specific view depicted in your screenshot, the Pro extensions are not labeled as such.

As mentioned, you can find out which are Pro in the popup modal on the Dashboard > Extensions page when you click on the Install Extensions button or on the URL.

@Russ_Michaels I have been dealing with this issue over the past week. Here’s how I resolved it:

  1. In MainWP Dashboard go to Extensions > Manage Extensions and make sure that your license is activated for
    Pro Reports (ours wasn’t). If it isn’t then you need to enter your license, then apply any available updates to the Pro Reports extension. Updates won’t be available unless the license is active.

  2. MainWP plugin on your Dashboard should be up to date

  3. MainWP Child plugin needs to be up to date on all of our sites, sites running an older version will have shortcodes in the reports.

@bojan I was actually wondering how often does this type of issue occur - is this related to a major upgrade in MainWP?

I’m wondering if this glitch is something we need to be worrying about every time an update for MainWP / MainWP Pro Reports comes out?

I would rather the report didn’t send at all vs. having a totally messed up report being sent out to our clients.

Hi @pixelkat

The issue with Extension API being disconnected is indeed related to a major upgrade to the API we’ve had with version 4.3.

It’s not related specifically to Pro Reports but to the Extension API key which is used to activate all extensions.

A new version of the Pro Reports 4.0.13 was released today which addresses the issue of token names being displayed instead of token values, and the issue of some sections being empty under certain conditions.
