• Does anyone know if this plugin will work with WPEngines PHP 7.0.

    There tester throws this error.

    FILE: /nas/content/live/rifetutor/wp-content/plugins/extended-categories-widget/2.8/class/avh-ec.category-group.php
    104 | ERROR | Extension ‘mysql_’ is deprecated since PHP 5.5 and removed since PHP 7.0 – use mysqli instead.

  • To anyone checking up on this (like me). I’ve upgraded to PHP 7 and the widget continues to function and display the correct posts for category. I’ve not tried anything in admin or a fresh install.

    The error above is in a portion of code intended to create a MySql table so potentially a prob. However, I’m guessing the “/2.8/” in the file path to the script means it is for use for use with WP v 2.8 (which no one should be using anyway).

    WPEngines latest checker also reports this “error”

    362 | ERROR | Indirect access to variables, properties and methods will be evaluated strictly in left-to-right order since PHP 7.0. Use curly braces to remove ambiguity.

    As “4.2” is the highest version number(?) in my plugins files I assume it relates to WP4.2 and LATER. Not had time to check it out but it relates to one of the widget settings in Admin and may or may not be a minor issue.
