All add-ons currently require PHP 7.4 or greater.

On July 4th 2024 PHP 8.2 will be the new minimum requirement for all add-ons. Expect any add-on released after that date to require 8.2 or greater. Some releases may not immediately take advantage of 8.x specific features in PHP, which means you might, be able to continue using new releases in PHP 7.4, however, if you experience an error the first thing you should do is update to PHP 8.2 then create a support ticket if the error persists.

Publisher does not support the Fluid field type. Please do not contact asking when support will be available.

Running into the following error message on install. Same error happens with EE versions 5.3.4 and 5.3.0 with Publisher Lite versions 2.11.1 and 2.11.2

I’ve had a little bit more time to test some scenarios with this error. It seems to be an issue that Publisher does not like being installed after the other addons that I’m using for this site. The error does not occur on a clean install and does not have any adverse effects if I merge all of my db tables/data after the initial install then enable all of the other addons.

Hi, Chris. Can you list the other addons on your site.


Chris Brady

Ansel, CE Image, Channel Files, Datagrab, Favorites, Freeform Pro, Maps, Maps Locator, Math, MX ZIP, Navee, Reefine, SEO Lite, Shortlist, Store, Tagger, URL Helper, User, Wygwam

That error sounds like an issue with Composer, it’s not finding/autoloading the file from the vendor folder. Are you positive the publisher/vendor/litzinger/basee/src/App.php file exists?


Chris Brady

Yes, it’s in the publisher directory

Hi Brian, this turned out to be a composer conflict on our side. Removing the other app fixed the issue.


BoldMinded (Brian)

What was the conflict? Wondering if it is something I can help avoid in the future.
