The DImension Portals

Every time I try to go to PvP or PvE or basically any other portal than items. It will say Shifting to but it never actually goes there. Can somebody help please?

There are two issues regarding connecting that I’ve seen most often.
If you’re playing on the mobile version of Terraria, you’ll only be able to access the Rift Dimension or Items.
If you’re playing on the Desktop version, make sure you’re playing on the newest version and not a Journey Mode character.
