All good here with three installs updated. One (CSF) was a jump from 4.7.0. Funny how fast you forget about those once-upon-a-timers.

Re: Feedback for: Textpattern CMS 4.8.4 released: PHP 8.0 compatible

Spoke to soon. When logged out, my custom error page used in conjuction with rvm_maintenance says it lost contact with two forms…

Tag error: <txp:output_form form="tmpl_meta" /> ->  Textpattern Notice: Form not found. .tmpl_meta while parsing form None on page default

textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php:3240 trigger_error()
textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php:3270 fetch_form()
textpattern/publish/taghandlers.php:538 parse_form()
output_form()
textpattern/vendors/Textpattern/Tag/Registry.php:139 call_user_func()
textpattern/lib/txplib_publish.php:543 Textpattern\Tag\Registry->process()
textpattern/lib/txplib_publish.php:403 processTags()
textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php:4311 parse()
textpattern/plugins/rvm_maintenance/rvm_maintenance.php:16 txp_die()
textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php:1535 rvm_maintenance()

Tag error: <txp:output_form form="tmpl_tete_default" /> ->  Textpattern Notice: Form not found. .tmpl_tete_default while parsing form None on page default

textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php:3240 trigger_error()
textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php:3270 fetch_form()
textpattern/publish/taghandlers.php:538 parse_form()

textpattern/plugins/rvm_maintenance/rvm_maintenance.php:16 txp_die()
textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php:1535 rvm_maintenance()

But the forms are there and nothing changed from before.

I’m not worried about this too much because I think I’m going to nix using the plugin anyway, but just to mention.

Re: Feedback for: Textpattern CMS 4.8.4 released: PHP 8.0 compatible

updated 5 sites in less than an hour without a hitch. Smooth sailings. Many Thanks to the Devs! Fine work.

( Should the instructions on updating have a word about the Themes folders. I was using a theme which was over-written when i installed the new version. i simply overwrote the RPC and THEMES folders. which borked my site. of course i had a backup and re-installed the themes)

Is it normal to have the form name prepended with . in the latter part of the message?

Me thinks a small note may be recommended. If you update from a previous TXP version there is absolutely no need to re-upload the themes folder (the RPC is ambiguous). Similarly, the textpattern/plugins folder does not need to be replaced, as it contains all install plugins. This one is less damaging, as the contents will be re-populated at first login, but at a minimum it is a waste of electricity…

Don’t know, but the forms are not named that way.

Re: Feedback for: Textpattern CMS 4.8.4 released: PHP 8.0 compatible

Cool! Big thanks to all concerned and must try out PHP 8 soon. Is there a good overview anywhere of what’s new?

Congrats to the Dev Team for moving us into the future.

P.S. And for outpacing the competition.

Thanks for that. How about textpattern/plugins? The contents is regenerated on first login (all or only active plugins? not sure) but the user could have deleted a plugin, but left the Delete from disk too checkbox unchecked, to keep the plugin for later use.
