Just a quick kudos for the quick update. Thanks again! I missed the 4.8.6 release so get to pass go and move forward to 4.8.7. 👍

This should fix itself when #1691 is reviewed and accepted…but I’ll bodge it in the blog post for the meantime.

Re: Feedback: Textpattern CMS 4.8.7 released: bug fixes, tweaks, hurrah!

I have upgraded all four my sites (one from 4.8.3, others from 4.8.5) smoothly yesterday, thanks devs! Unfortunately, I found one publication ruined today: Fatal error: Array and string offset access syntax with curly braces is no longer supported. Thanks to whocarez, I quickly patched tru_tags plugin.

Update two sites today, one from Textpattern 4.8.1 and one that was running an edited version of Textpattern 4.8.5 ((form override issue in previous thread). No problems to report.

Re: Feedback: Textpattern CMS 4.8.7 released: bug fixes, tweaks, hurrah!

I’m in the middle of changing my hosting server for 6 websites and they have an app that is currently stuck on 4.8.6. Should be updated “soon.”

Is it possible at all to run 4.8.6, or should I wait until 4.8.7 is released?

One site has inexplicably reverted to 4.7.1. It was on 4.8.5 and is throwing at least one error because of the reversion.

But it’s all or nothing. Either all 4.8.6, or 5 websites on 4.8.5 and one on 4.7.1.

The 4.7.1 is the one with all the traffic, of course.

Re: Feedback: Textpattern CMS 4.8.7 released: bug fixes, tweaks, hurrah!

Weird how a site got reverted. That’s not meant to happen at all!

4.8.6 is not advised because it was borked. 4.8.7 is out and should be the go-to, and it only had two or three differences (fixes) between that and 4.8.6 anyway.

But there is an admin search bug in 4.8.7 that may show up in debugging mode. Fixed in the latest 4.8.8 which is as close to 4.8.7 as makes no difference right now, barring the bug fixes I made, so you’re safe to use it if you don’t mind the nag about using dev code on a live server on the Diagnostics panel.

Re: Feedback: Textpattern CMS 4.8.7 released: bug fixes, tweaks, hurrah!

Updated a site from 4.8.4 to 4.8.7 and an older plugin complained about Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function image(). Could not find any hint in the Release notes, but I replaced image( array ... with images( array ... and this seems to make the trick.

And a minor one: the update message A new Textpattern version (4.8.7) has been installed. appears in English not in the system language.

Yes, direct calls to ‘tag’ functions are deprecated, since they do not handle the global attributes. You can try instead

processTag('image', array(...), ...)
