    unfortunately the Rendering fails … is there anywhere, I can get some more details on what exactly failed?

    After checking the forum, I …

    • used a different theme
    • reinstalled a bought theme (ProDocs (
    • toggeled a few advanced options

    … without any success.

    Can someone point me in the right direction, where to look?

    “Rendering process failed
    An error occurred during rendering process:

    Unexpected token u in JSON at position 0”

    Have you modified the config.json file?

    I changed some settings in the app, but did not alter the file with an editor or something …

    If I create a new site the render succeeds …

    Are you able to reproduce this issue step by step? It will help us debug the problem.

    😉 unfortunately not – if I remeber it right, it startet after I added some “Menu” with “Tag” Content … but I could be wrong.

    Would it help to share the site folder with you on a more private way than attaching it here? Would a private reply work – I am not used to this functionality, sorry.

    Exactly, there is a problem with tags; when I delete them all, the site starts rendering. Thanks for reporting this problem. Now we have to debug what’s going on.

    Yeahr. Thank you for your fast response …

    I just encountered, that there is one specific page – if I add a tag, rendering fails – if I remove the tags it succeeds.

    Hi @wim,

    Your issue is caused by fact that you have removed some tag/tags which were set as a main tag for posts.

    Please reconfigure main tags in your posts – I suppose it will help as a temporary solution. I have added a fix which will prevent such situations in the upcoming release:

    ok – didn‘t know that I did that … great to know, that there will be a fix in the near future … would love to use tags.

    Thanks a lot!

    You can use tags even now, but please remember to be careful if you are removing some tags which could be manually set as a main tag 🙂
