Hello Brian,

We’ve copied our production/staging env so we can do maintenance and/or updates but we want to make sure we’re not getting any errors we’re not having in staging.
We noticed that we did get a new error, which is weird as the staging en production env use the same versions.

Declaration of Publisher_channel_categories::category_subtree($cdata, $active_cat) should be compatible with Channel::category_subtree($cdata = Array, $active_cat = NULL)

user/addons/publisher/legacy/libraries/Publisher_channel_categories.php, line 0

Severity: E_WARNING

Kind regards, thanks in advance!

Now that EE 7 is out, I don’t support v5 anymore. Its mentioned at the bottom of - I only support the last 2 major releases.

You’re also _several_ releases behind on Publisher. You’ll have to update to the latest version of Publisher, and at least EE 6.3.5 before I can look into this.

It is probably very likely that this issue has been fixed in a newer version of Publisher. You should check the change log.

I’m going to close this ticket out. Once you’re up-to-date and if you still experience the issue feel free to re-open it and I’ll take a look.
