    I’ve looked into this, it’s was a caching issue on our end. Nothing changed in this code other than a version number bump.

    If any mod could delete this it’d be grand, the ticketing system won’t let me change the title.

    I suspect this error might be from an older PHP version? PHP v7.x appears to have no issue with the syntax. I’ve updated the syntax just in case, from $var = ( CONST * # ) (in a class static variable) to $var = ###.

    Ah, you suspect correctly. I’ve just checked that server and it’s running 5.5.32, so not even on the recommended minimum version. I will get that sorted.

    Thanks very much for the quick response.


    Definitely the PHP version. I had to roll back because of an outdated and unsupported theme that I cannot change right now, and only then did I get the error (I updated the plugin last night).

    Hi The latest update crashed my site as well yesterday.
    Together with a Domino Effect to rebuild.

    I’m running PHP 5.4.43.

    What’s the best ( easy ) method to update the PHP ?

    Through your hosting control panel – look for “PHP configuration” in cpanel or “Programming Languages” in GoDaddy dashboard

    Thanks jjanthony – that worked.
