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.

Ticket: CP Diffs not showing up

Status Resolved
Add-on / Version Publisher

I have “Diff Enabled (CP)” set to yes and the default “Diff - by Chris B” selected, but I’m not seeing anything “next to each field on the publish page in the CP”.

I’ve tried it with style set to full and text only, on a number of different fieldtypes.

Am I missing something?


BoldMinded (Brian)

What sort of field is it?


Timothy Kelty

I tried it with:

  • title field
  • wygwam
  • text input

BoldMinded (Brian)

Each custom field needs to be enabled, there is a checkbox on the field settings page. Diffs also only show when you’re viewing the draft, not the published/open version.


Timothy Kelty

doh! I knew it was me. Thanks.


BoldMinded (Brian)

No problem


Timothy Kelty

Ok, sorry to keep pestering you but-

Now that I tried that, I notice that when I save my fields, non of the Publisher settings stick.


BoldMinded (Brian)

Are there any rows in the publisher_diff_settings table?


Timothy Kelty

Nothing, doesn’t appear to be getting saved at all.


BoldMinded (Brian)

That is indeed strange.


BoldMinded (Brian)

wait, do you have the Accessory enabled?


BoldMinded (Brian)

Tim, is there anyway for me to get CP access to take a look at this?


Timothy Kelty

Weird, I installed the 0.98.8 you sent me and now they the publisher block doesn’t show at all on the field edit screen.

This is EE 2.5.5, I tried it with a 2.6 install and the block showed up but still wouldn’t save. I’ll get you access for both.


BoldMinded (Brian)

Tim, does 0.98.8 have any affect on this issue?


Timothy Kelty

It didn’t.

I have Publisher on 2 installs.

The credentials on this issue are for 2.6, and in that case, the publisher settings in the field edit screen don’t save.

The creds for this issue (, is a 2.5.5 install, and in that case, the publisher block doesn’t show up at all in the field edit screen.


BoldMinded (Brian)

The Taggable module is throwing a JS error on the field settings pages, so its killing the JS that Publisher is adding to the page to get the custom settings to show.


Timothy Kelty

Fixed those here, thanks:


BoldMinded (Brian)

Cool, so all is good on this front now?
