Support » Plugin: MailChimp for WordPress » 4.3 just killed my website [fixed]

  • Not much more to say. I updated to 4.3, and it completely killed my website. I’ve manually deleted it and reverted to 4.2.5.

    Edit: The plugin was promptly updated (see below) and the problem fixed. I’m putting the rating back up to 5 stars.

    Hi 50 seconds north,

    We’re sorry that happened to you. Our previous plugin update contained a bug for people that were running an older PHP versions and our tests didn’t catch it. Again, sorry… 🙁

    I’ve just pushed out version 4.3.1 in which the issue is fixed.

    On a somewhat related note: I strongly suggest asking your webhost to upgrade you to a PHP version that is actively supported as your site is at a security risk running such an old version (PHP 5.4 hasn’t been maintained for over 3 years). Not only that, but updating to PHP 7.x will greatly improve your website’s performance.

    Thanks for the fix and for the advice!

    Thank you for changing your review! Was definitely not needed as the fault was entirely on us, but much appreciated nonetheless.
