    I’ve had this issue for a few months. My site keeps overloading things and my hosting says that “the plugin easy-bootstrap-shortcode-pro.off was still active and causing the application to run out of memory.”

    I purchased the Pro and was immediately told that it was causing issues. But I have a lot of existing short codes that break when it’s off.

    They also said the site’s not caching and that “You’ll want to review the following plugins as they appear to be creating cookies:”

    EBS was listed a lot as follows. I’m not sure what to do at this point. If the plugin is on, the site overloads. If it’s off, all the shortcodes all over my site break and things look a hot mess.

    Any advice on what to do would be appreciated. Here is the stuff they sent about the plugins making cookies:

    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcodes/styles/ebs-dstyle.php:if(!session_id()) @session_start();
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcodes/styles/ebs_dynamic_css.php:if(!session_id()) @session_start();
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcodes/shortcode/slider/plugin_shortcode.php: ebs_session_start();
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcodes/shortcode/slider/plugin_shortcode.php: ebs_session_start();
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcodes/shortcode/servicebox/plugin_shortcode.php: ebs_session_start();
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcodes/osc_bootstrap_shortcode.php: ebs_session_start();
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcodes/osc_bootstrap_shortcode.php: ebs_session_start();
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcodes/osc_bootstrap_shortcode.php: function ebs_session_start() {
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcodes/osc_bootstrap_shortcode.php: @session_start();

    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcode-pro.off/osc_bootstrap_shortcode.php: function ebs_session_start() {
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcode-pro.off/osc_bootstrap_shortcode.php: @session_start();
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcode-pro.off/assets/styles/ebs_dynamic_css.php: session_start();
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcode-pro.off/assets/js/carousel-dynamic.php: session_start();
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcode-pro.off/lib/ebs_ajax.php: session_start();
    ./wp-content/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcode-pro.off/lib/ebs_ajax.php: session_start();

    Just heard back more from my hosting provider. They’ve said:

    “Unfortunately the plugin’s [EBS + EBS Pro] issues with hitting our cache have been present since at least before September as we notified you of the resource usage in #97099.

    We can try to enable the easy-bootstrap-shortcode-pro and then disable all of the cookies using a plugin, but that would be a band-aid fix and may also have a negative effect on some of the functionality of your site. It’s possible that the PRO version of the plugin introduced these issues; I’d recommend contacting the plugin developers if they have a patch or solution that doesn’t require the PHP sessions from being initiated.”

    I hope this helps with describing the issue.

    Hi, is there any movement on this? I’m still having severe issues with the plugin.
