    If you are having an issue, please post to the support forum. This is the reviews and your post is not a review.

    The plugin works just fine with the latest version of WordPress and PHP 8.2.

    If it’s not working for you, then please post something in the support forum here with more specific information.

    Per the plug-in documentation, the plug-in was last updated 12 months ago. It is compatible only up to WP 6.0.5 and PHP 5.6 or higher. Tech support with my hosting provider identified deprecated PHP as the issue causing the DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN white screen.

    You’re reading it wrong. It says:

    WordPress Version:3.3 or higher

    Tested up to:6.0.5

    PHP Version:5.6 or higher

    It works just fine with the latest versions and doesn’t throw any PHP errors or notices. My plugin is very stable and so I don’t update it every week or so when WordPress puts out a new version, or when a new version of PHP is released. I maintain this version and fix any reported bugs with it, but it has not needed any updates recently because it is very stable. That information you see has to be put in the header of the plugin itself, so if I want to change my “tested up to” number every week when WordPress makes a new release, then I need to update my code, and go through the whole process of updating it on the wordpress.org site just to change a couple numbers, and then every user has to take the time to update it on their site for an update that doesn’t change anything at all. It’s a big waste of time, especially because of the frequency of which WordPress is releasing new updates.

    Did you even try the plugin? You just decide to write a bad review for something you didn’t even try? And didn’t bother asking a question in the support forum first to see if it was still supported or working?

    If it would make you feel better, I can change those numbers in the one file in my plugin and put out a new update that will change absolutely nothing but what is shown here on the plugin page at wordpress.org.

    Thanks.

    Where are you getting that “compatible up to”. On the main page right (below), I already copied the info and it says “tested up to” NOT “compatible up to”. There is a very big difference!

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/pta-volunteer-sign-up-sheets/

    There is NOTHING in the code of my plugin, or my documentation, that says “compatible up to”, so maybe you just read it wrong??

    And still, you have not provided any info at all about what your specific issue is. What exactly is not working? Can you show the error log messages that point to my specific plugin? If you just updated your whole site to PHP 8.2 without testing ALL of your plugins, then there is a very good chance that there could be another plugin, or even your theme, that is NOT compatible with PHP 8.2 and that is causing your issues. Again, I can assure you that my plugin works just fine with PHP 8.2.10, as I tested it again to make sure before my initial response.

    However, instead, you feel the best course of action for you is to put a meaningless 1 star review without any supporting info whatsoever, which really goes a long way for wanting me to provide you with tons of my time to support you for free. Maybe learn how to post a proper question in the support forum before you just go all negative on someone for absolutely no reason.

    Click on “View Details” from the plug-ins page.

    Well, that’s an issue with wordpress.org itself and how it displays the values from the readme file in the plugins. Because the ONLY related info in the header of the plugin’s readme file is the “tested up to” value, and that’s what shows on the main plugin page at wordpress.org. If they are changing the header for that info when you click the “view details”, then there is nothing I can do about that.

    If that’s the only thing that is bothering you, then download the new version I just uploaded, as, just for you (because nobody else is having any kind of issue with this), I made a new update and updated the “tested up to” version and I raised the “Minimum” PHP version to 7.4 (even though it will still work with older versions, anything before PHP 7.4 is not recommended at this point).

    Please, please, please… if you have an issue in the future, post something in the SUPPORT forum and I will be more than happy to test and fix it. Resorting to a really bad review, with absolutely no useful info, just to be mean or to vent your frustrations, is not a good way to go about getting FREE support. And, still, you have not provided me with anything that shows that it’s actually causing any errors on your site. More than 2000 active installs, and nobody else is reporting any issues.
