Support » Plugin: StaffList » Breaking js error in WordPress 5.5

  • Resolved thomasprice61


    When WordPress is updated from v5.4.2 to v5.5 the following javascript error occurs:

    Uncaught TypeError: this[binder] is not a function
    at n.fn.init.$.fn.tipsy (tipsy.js?ver=1.3:180)
    at build_stafflist (stafflist.js?ver=1:101)
    at HTMLDocument.<anonymous> (stafflist.js?ver=1:3)
    at i (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)
    at Object.fireWith [as resolveWith] (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)
    at Function.ready (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)
    at HTMLDocument.J (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)

    This impacted other plugins.
    I had to disable StaffList as a workaround.

    The installed version of StaffList is 2.7.6

    Hello @thomasprice61

    Please check the quick patch in v.2.7.7
    The issue was caused by a deprecated listener function with the include Tipsy library.

    Reference, here:

    Let us know if this is all you need.

    StaffList in the WordPress states:
    This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.
    From an initial test, StaffList is fine in WordPress v5.5.
    It would be great if the readme is updated:
    Tested up to:5.5
