Incompatible Themes & Plugins

With over 35,000 plugins and themes available for Wordpress, it's possible that conflicts can occur between OptimizePress and themes or plugins running on your site.

Conflicts usually occur because some plugins or themes may use scripts which conflict with scripts already used inside OptimizePress, or because of other code conflicts.


Fixing Plugin & Theme Conflicts (with LiveEditor) 

Although it's not possible for us to modify the code in third-party themes and plugins to work with OptimizePress, we have developed a section within OptimizePress which can help with some of these conflicts.

This section is called "Disable Styles & Scripts" and you can find this within OptimizePress > Support > Disable Styles & Scripts 

If you are experiencing problems using the LiveEditor with certain plugins, these options have been found to help resolve these issues.  Please note disabling a specific theme or plugin from rendering inside the LiveEditor will stop any functionality attached to it from working within the LiveEditor or pages created with it.  Normal Wordpress pages and posts remain unaffected


Incompatible Plugins


PLEASE NOTE: This is not an exhaustive list. If your plugins are not listed here, it does not mean they are guaranteed to work. We do update this list but with so many plugins available, it's possible that a plugin not listed here could cause problems with OptimizePress


This page contains a log of themes and plugins with known conflicts with OptimizePress 2.0

  • SEO Redirection (Fakhri Alsadi) - this plugin breaks the optin functionality of forms inside OptimizePress because it redirects our optin form submission URL /process-optin-form [Confirmed August 2015]


  • Hybrid Connect (should now work if you use the latest Op2 and Hybrid connect) - known to cause issues in the LiveEditor. (we are considering fixes for this at the moment). The Hybrid connect team are working with us to fix this asap.
  • Page Expiration Robot Pro - sometimes will not render on pages, or causes page content to disappear in LiveEditor
  • WP Minify - breaks our page layouts as it does not correctly minify CSS and JS (this will result in your pages looking messed up)
  • Affiliate Resources Page (Jack Born) - Stops the Pagebuilder process working properly
  • LinkTrackr - breaks pages in certain browsers
  • Digg Digg by Buffer - breaks the LiveEditor and stops items being editable
  • Exclude Pages from Navigation - causes issues with duplicate pages or "ghost" pages appearing
  • Pretty Links Lite / Pretty Links Pro - breaks some functions of OptimizePress including the exit redirect function
  • Lightbox Plus ColorBox - breaks LiveEditor
  • 404 Redirection - can break your Optin boxes or cause strange redirection after opt-in
  • CKEditor for WordPress - stops WYSIWYG functions / text block editor from working
  • WordPress MU Domain Mapping plugin - causes images and elements to disappear
  • Revolution Slider - conflicts with OP2
  • W3 Total Cache (W3TC)- this plugin WILL work with OptimizePress but Do not use the "minify" function as this will break the styling on your pages. Also if you're using OPtimizeMember do not use the object caching mode as this can cause issue
  • SEOPressor - breaks the LiveEditor
  • WPMU - known to cause some issues (we are investigating this)]
  • Ultimate Tiny MCE plugin - causes issues in the LiveEditor with updating elements
  • Evergreen Post Tweeter - Tom Ewer - breaks the auto responder integration
  • Cformsll - plugin causing live editor to not work properly.  When clicking to edit or add an element, the loading icon swirls forever when the plugin is activated.

  • Fancybox for Wordpress - can cause issues with OptimizePress pages (because we have Fancybox code inside OP2)

  • Fancybox - incompatible, causes serious issuews with OP, don't use it

  • Easy FancyBox - incompatible, breaks some parts of OP, better don't use

  • Wow Slider - known to cause issues
  • Tiny Coffee - known to cause issues

Incompatible Themes

  • Place - Responsive Blogging WordPress Theme (ThemeForest)
  • BootstrapPress 
  • Enfold theme - known to break some of our responsive resizing. Also some templates can be cut off. Templates being cut off can be fixed with custom CSS:  @media only screen and (min-width: 960px) {body.op-plugin .container { width: 100%; }}
  • ElegantThemes - known to cause some interference with certain parts of liveeditor
  • United Theme's Nevada Theme  ​
  • Udesign Theme - causes issues with fonts

Incompatible Hosting Services 

  • GoDaddy* - although OptimizePress will run on GoDaddy hosting, their hosting environment is quite restrictive and we often find sites run slower on GoDaddy 
  • SEOHosting - Some customers have reported strange errors when editing their sites whilst on this hosting

    Auto Tube Pro
    This is an auto-posting plugin that grabs videos from YouTube according to keyword, and places them inside posts. However, it makes the live editor unusable because it places videos inside the elements, making it impossible to create/edit the elements.

    Only tried on one site but JetPacks After-the-Deadline doesn't show the popup when clicking either red or blue underlined words. Switched to another theme, edited same post - worked as intended. Switched back, stopped working. Firebug console gives:
    TypeError: this.suggestions is undefined
    var len = this.suggestions.length;

    The themes don't appear to be compatible with the LiveEditor. Has anyone been attempting to determine what makes themes incompatible and debug things? I'm not sure this is an OP issue, or a theme foundry issue. Just overlapping code.

    are you incompatible with MapifyPro? I am unable to use it and originally thought it was another plugin conflict but I've deleted all other plugins and still having trouble.

    Just adding Woocommerce LMS - Sensei here.

    I've already reported to Support for both plugins. LiveEditor goes completely blank with the latest version of Sensei that came out in March 2014.

    Just purchased and installed Popup Domination..

    It breaks the text and headline editor under visual input but displays under HTML text input. The only way to be able to write text and style it under visual editor is to deactivate popup domination, which obviously is not ideal.

    just purchased AVADA (Themeforest) for a client. Discovered OP2 incompatible with AVADAS shortcodes. Thats is, any page that uses shortcodes is rendered invisible if OP2 is active. When deactivated, problem dissappears.

    Hard to believe that the most popular theme (AVADA) and OP2 are incompatible.

    Plan was to use AVADA for its great look and feel, and use OP2 plugin to create sales and squeeze pages. Seems the only way of doing this now is a completely independent installation of WP & OP2 in a subdomain.

    Is OP doing any work on this issue?

    Geoff Hughes...I had the same problem and Avada Tech Support alerted me of the issue. The problem is that Avada and OptimizePress have some of the same shortcode names, thus when both are activated it renders the shortcodes obsolete. The workaround is to go into the Avada Shortcodes php file and rename the shortcodes that are giving you the issue.

    Here's the response I received from them:

    "Yes, that is the conflict of shortcode names. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do here unless you want to customize the names you are familiar with customizing the names of the shortcodes yourself.

    The file where shortcodes are registered is located in wp-content/plugins/fusion-core/shortcodes.php

    You can rename any conflicting plugin from Avada to a different name which might not conflict with the plugin that you want to use."

    I hope this helps you out.

    There is obviously a structural / code problem with the plugin version of OP, especially in the Live Editor, that causes so many incompatibilities. It isn't and can't be every other theme and plugin's fault that OP doesn't work.

    Please work through the plugin developer handbook ( and SCRIPT_DEBUG ( to resolve these issues - there's no need for these conflicts in most cases.

    I'm looking for a slider that has both graphics and video and is compatible with OP 2. Any suggestions? The ones that are talked about in the club look like the whole slider is a video or a picture graphic. Thanks.

    Hi James I'm trying to eliminate render-bloking above the fold, I thought I found the answer with this pluguin Eliminate Render-Blocking JavaScript which scored me a 98 speed but gave me a 500 error. Is there something I can do to eliminate this problem with some code or another plugin? It's the last piece of the speed puzzle.
