    Are you still seeing this? Would you be able to view the wp-content/plugins/faster-woo-widgets/readme.txt file? The version number is at the top of that file.

      === Faster Woo Widgets ===

      == Changelog ==
      = 2.38 Beta (March 2021) =

      This has now been fixed with problems. There were two BackDOORY.

      Both are hidden in the ICO graphic file

        I don’t have any ICO files in Faster Woo Widgets – in fact, I don’t have ICO files in any of my plugins.

        I suggest you install Sucuri and check your WordPress core files for hacks since it looks like you are hacked.

    This was fixed – it was a situation with lots of top-level taxonomy terms. I refactored how the pretty-permalink URLs are dealt with and also added options to settings page to enable/disable key features to make narrowing down any future freezes far easier, while also giving more control to admins over which plugins to use for which pieces of functionality – e.g. some people like to use other plugins that alter Woo titles, so you can now disable that feature too in FWW.
