Support » Plugin: Linkify Text » Latest Version Breaks Website

  • Resolved Paul Scollon


    The latest update causes this error on the server (logged by apache2 as PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error)

    Call to undefined function mb_ereg_replace() in /var/www/html/wp-content/plugins/linkify-text/linkify-text.php

    and stops post body loading (plus any content afterwards). Was working fine up until this update.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Fixed with “sudo apt-get install php7.0-mbstring”

    Still pretty flake behaviour though, but once the plugin is disabled all is well.

    @scollonp: Hi Paul, thanks for the report.

    v1.9.1 of Linkify Text was just released, which includes a fix to ensure multibyte functions (those that start with “mb_”) aren’t used if they are not available.

    After updating to it, can you report back on the flakey behavior if it persists? If it does, could you elaborate on what you mean by flakey (with examples if possible)? Do the affected post(s) make use of multibyte characters?


    It’s working quite well now, thank you!
