Update for WP v5

Submitted by bizzo on Tue, 2021-01-26 03:07 in

Hi David,
I noticed Wordpress is up to version 5 now. I am considering using the WP plugin for a new site & was wondering if there are any updates planned in the near future to cater for v5?

Hello Gav and welcome to the forum,

I'm shortly about to build a PHP8/WP5 test server and will update the plugin for V5 if required alongside a maintenance release of the core script. Watch the forum for updates towards the middle of next month...

Hi Graham,

I've completed the standalone update and moving on to test / update if required the plugins this week, aiming to publish both first week of next month.

I have just published standalone Price Tapestry distribution 20/10A, a maintenance release and updated for PHP version 8. For PHP version 8 compatibility there is in fact only one change required to earlier distributions due to deprecation of Magic Quotes functionality. To patch, edit includes/widget.php and look for the following code at line 351:

  if (get_magic_quotes_gpc())

...and REPLACE with:

  if (FALSE)

Regarding for WordPress, version 3.0 (BETA) is compatible with WP v5 and PHP 7 however WordPress itself is not yet fully compatible with PHP 8 so I am waiting for a subsequent release that confirms PHP 8 compatibility at which point I will test and release the plugin at verion 4.0.
