If you get this error, relax, you can easily get over this error in some steps. The main culprit of this error is the website homepage.
If you are a newbie or don’t know anything about homepage builders, eg, Elementor, Divi Builder, etc I advise you to change your theme to a magazine-style. There are plenty of WordPress free magazine style themes available. My favorite is the Newspaper and Soledad WP Theme. I Always get approval with these themes.
