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.

I can send a whole new build or you can edit line 372 of Library/App.php to be this:

if (isset(ee()->TMPL) && method_exists(ee()->TMPL, 'set_data')) {

which should fix it.


BoldMinded (Brian)

Actually sorry, the App.php file is in the vendor-build directory. Hold on and I’ll send a new build.
