Well, if you’ve recently upgraded a WordPress site, then you may get such error message “Please open this page in the Admin panel only.” It seems like a nightmare or white screen of death. This error’s caused by faulty Google Analytics Dashboard Plugin and below is a quick resolution for it.
As this plugin throws a fatal error, which means we’re unable to get access to wp-admin. No problem, we can always use FTP method to fix WordPress website. Follow the steps below:
- Login to FTP and navigate to /www/wp-content/plugins directory.
- Further find the folder named google-analytics-dashboard.
- Select that folder and rename it to google-analytics-dashboard_broken.
- Once you’ve renamed the folder, go to your browser and open http://www.yourwebsite.com/wp-admin
- Bravo! We’re done. 😉
I’m sure plugin author will release the update soon, as being mandatory plugin for few WordPress websites. Anyway, this is a temporary fix which can resolve any fatal error caused by broken plugins on WordPress website. Now you know. 😉
