It magically fixed the problem within the website

By Simone Longato (simonelongato) on April 28, 2023

Congratulations to whoever made this plugin. There were some editor display issues on wordpress and the plugin fixed them. Now clearly I have to go back to the problem to restore the correct functioning of wordpress. but wow! it was amazing!

This is an excellent plugin! Works perfectly! I just wish there was an option to turn off the message that says this is not a permanent fix.

Life saver bandaid. Thanks!

Boy did this come in handy. Thanks for doing this. It got the menus working. This will give us time to replace the existing theme with our own. Thanks again! JL nwcic.com

I was tired of seeing the jQuery red error, so I made a site backup and installed the plugin thinking I would need to do some sort of tweaking. However, I looked immediately after the install and no error whatsoever. I was pleasantly surprised. 5 Stars for sure. Thanks.

Love it, super simple - perfect solution

Also lets you know when it's no longer needed!!!! This is what I call going above and beyond. I would rate 10 stars if I could. You deserve it.

awesome!..it's solved my sidebar issues

does nothing.

By patbell101 on March 16, 2021

Weeks later and I am STILL seeing this damned message every week. I have run Remove jQuery Migrate even rerun Enable jQuery Migrate followed by Remove jQuery Migrate again deactivated them then I also have Stop jQuery Migrate Emails which seems to do nothing but I don't find out until a week after I have been messing around. I guess the remedy is send the messages to spam

update without breaking is good!

By Oclair on March 10, 2021

This is keeping a site with a paid theme abandoned by its developer working as intended. A backwards compatible patch like this is important keeping things working while applying security updates. Thank You!

Broke Site and can't remove

By kevinneedshelp123 on February 26, 2021

I was referred to this plugin from Qode Interactive (who I purchased my theme from) in order to fix some issues on my website, but then once I installed the plugin it completely broke my website. I tried to disable and uninstall it, but the affects of the plugin stayed. I tried to restore from a backup, but even that didn't work!! Finally, I contacted SiteGround and an agent helped me identify that the plugin left some file in the public_html folder that was outside of the backup. He deleted the files from public_html, restored from backup and I purged my cache and everything is working again. Lot of trouble to get back to square 1.
