    Dear Developer!

    We found a line, which eliminates some features in wp. Why is this necessary?

    add_filter( ‘admin_footer_text’, ‘__return_false’, 1000 );

    Regards,

    Hi,

    This hook is only used on the CN plugin onboarding screen in order to prevent messing up the design. It’s not used anywhere outside of the plugin scope.

    Hello,

    the problem is that some other very useful plugins like “Server IP & Memory Usage Display” does not work anymore. I propose to remove this filter.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    I would also like to continue to see the info from “Server IP & Memory Usage Display”

    Guys,

    I dont know what is happening. There is a built in wp hook: admin_footer_text

    Located in: \wp-admin\admin-footer.php

    Many plugins use this hook for write some credits, version, etc…

    If You do this: “add_filter( ‘admin_footer_text’, ‘__return_false’, 1000 );”
    You will kill all output by this hook!

    Please don’t!

    Thanks,
    David

    “This hook is only used on the CN plugin onboarding screen in order to prevent messing up the design”

    Ran into the same issue under PHP 8 with WP 5.7 and Cookie 2.0.3
    Upon opening & saving welcome.php this fatal error was displayed:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected identifier “t”, expecting “)” in /home/mmwbnl/public_html/wp-content/plugins/cookie-notice/includes/welcome.php on line 528

    After adding double quotes in __( “Don’t have an account yet?”, the issue was gone.
    And plugin “Server IP & Memory Usage Display” works fine again
