Support » Plugin: Disable Emails » Cannot install on older WordPress

  • Resolved webmarka


    Why keeping the “Requires at least” version tag so high in the readme.txt such as this plugin will not work on any website with older WordPress version?

    This plugin is often used as a development plugin on dev sites, which are often not updated (because this is precisely the work being done at the moment!).

    Not being able to install the plugin on any old WordPress isn’t very useful.

    Yes, the latest version will only work on WP 5.5 or later. PHPMailer has been updated, and using it the old way without namespace triggers deprecated warnings.

    If you need to run this plugin on an older version of WordPress, please install version 1.6.3 which you can download from the Advanced page for the plugin.
