Recently, my site began displaying the following notice pasted below. It doesn’t allow me to even access the WP-Admin dashboard. I have deactivated all plugins and it appears to reappear whenever I install Kirki. But whenever I install grimlock for buddpress and BuddyPress then it basically kills the site. HELP! Why is the CERA them doing this when these are the required plugins for the theme?
Before the notice posted below I have pasted the critical error email I received from WordPress:
In this case, WordPress caught an error with one of your plugins, Grimlock for BuddyPress.
WordPress version 5.8.2
Current theme: Cera (version 1.1.6)
Current plugin: Grimlock for BuddyPress (version 1.4.5)
PHP version 7.4.26

Thank you for your patience @radewan.
We found out what the problem was. A few days ago, Kirki was updated to version 4.0 which changes a lot of things and breaks, for example, the compatibility with Grimlock. The developers of Kirki realized that this update caused some issues for many WordPress installations and they have cancelled the release to return to 3.1.9.
Therefore, the solution is to reinstall Kirki to get the 3.1.9 version. For that, I invite you to delete the plugin and reinstall it. If you want, you can download this version here: Kirki 3.1.9.
After reinstalling this plugin, can you confirm me all is working fine?
Be sure that the new version will be compatible with Grimlock as soon as possible. However, we have to deal with this compatibility once Kirki has released a stable version.

It seems that the last version of Kirki doesn’t cause any critical error. We think this last version should be stable and we made our plugins compatible.
Could you please make sure that you have the latest theme version and that all recommended plugins are up-to-date? If it’s the case, I invite you to update Kirki to the last version.
Finally, you could also consider clearing all activated caching system as well as your browser cache before investigating any further. If you want to read more on what browser cache is and how to clear it, here is an article that might help you: How to Clear Internet Cache in Every Major Browser.
In case you’re facing any other issue related to the update of Kirki, please come back to us. We’ll do our best to help you fix it.
