Newer / Older tag error on upgrade to 4.8.8

I’m just updating an older site which has some sections basically acting as single pages, so not using txp:article to output a list.

After an upgrade from 4.8.2 to 4.8.8 I saw this:

Tag error: <txp:newer rel="prev"><txp:text item="newer" /></txp:newer> ->  Textpattern Warning: secondpass < 2 while parsing form None on page default_1

Resolved, sort of, by finding the pesky sections and excluding them.

                        <txp:if_section name="authors,contact,books" not>
							<txp:evaluate test="newer,older">
								<nav class="paginator" aria-label="<txp:text item="page_nav" />">
									<txp:newer rel="prev">
										<txp:text item="newer" />
									<txp:older rel="next">
										<txp:text item="older" />

Re: Newer / Older tag error on upgrade to 4.8.8

I think on the road between 4.8.2 and 4.8.8 some loose ends got tightened with@prev@ /@next@, or may be it was a necessity for PHP 4.8.1 support. The actual result is that warning you get on pages/sections that actually have nothing to paginate.

Ran into a very similar error (warning) yesterday when being overly zealous while cleaning up some code (the result of my cleaning: no output… and then that warning).

Where is that emoji for a solar powered submarine when you need it ?

This warning has been added to help with setting up some new facilities, but you can safely ignore it in your case.
