I just tried creating a page called "Browse Products" that simply embeds a View called "View-Products-Brand". However, when publishing the page it throws a fatal error. Here is the shortcode (the entire body content of the page):

[wpv-view name="view-products-brand"]

When I remove the shortcode from the page the error does not occur. Below please find the e-mail automatically generated by WordPress. Thanks for any help.



Since WordPress 5.2 there is a built-in feature that detects when a plugin or theme causes a fatal error on your site, and notifies you with this automated email.

In this case, WordPress caught an error with one of your plugins, Toolset Types.

First, visit your website (hidden link) and check for any visible issues. Next, visit the page where the error was caught (hidden link) and check for any visible issues.

Please contact your host for assistance with investigating this issue further.

If your site appears broken and you can't access your dashboard normally, WordPress now has a special "recovery mode". This lets you safely login to your dashboard and investigate further.

**link omitted**

To keep your site safe, this link will expire in 1 day. Don't worry about that, though: a new link will be emailed to you if the error occurs again after it expires.

When seeking help with this issue, you may be asked for some of the following information:
WordPress version 5.3.2
Current theme: Astra (version 2.3.4)
Current plugin: Toolset Types (version 3.3.10)
PHP version 7.0.33

Hi Aaron,

Thank you getting in touch.

Based on the error here it seems that your wordpress instance is running out of memory.

What I would recommend that you do is to increase your wordpress memory limit and try again.

To do this please follow the instructions in the link below.

The View had a filter that used a shortcode attribute but I was not passing the shortcode attribute, so it was returning thousands of posts and no pagination (prompting the memory issue).

Once I added the attribute to the Views shortcode, the issue went away.
