    Working with this person. Apparently my emails were spammed, which is pretty common these days. ie email fails around 30% of the time these days. Ugh.

    I’ve sent you several emails, but have not heard back from you yet. Are you getting my emails?

    Ok I got your last email and am logged into 1 of your sites now. So at this point hopefully we can continue this directly via email. Fingers crossed. 🙂

    There are some very strange problems occurring on your site. What I suspect is that the PHP 8.04 build/installation is fubar. Switch to PHP 7.4 and let me know if any of the additional problems I mentioned in my direct email to you reoccur. Another person ran into similar issues/problems and it was due to a fubar PHP 8.04 build/installation. So what might be going on is a bad PHP 8.04 build is circulating around and web hosts are using that fubar PHP 8.04 build.

    Correction: Should be PHP 8.0.2 not 8.04.

    Full description of issues/problems:

    What is happening is that PHP 8 has gotten a lot stricter about checking code for php errors. I am “fixing” those things that PHP 8 is now calling “errors” and will have these things “fixed” in BPS Pro 15.3. What is not normal is that these php “errors” were being displayed to you and the other things that were really strange were these 2 things…

    #1. After running the Setup Wizard most of the php errors were no longer being displayed. Then I clicked on the WordPress Plugins page and all the php errors were being displayed again??? The only logical thing I can think of that would cause that is some kind of cache problem. The WordPress wp-admin dashboard backend area should not be cached for obvious reasons. Only the frontend of a website should be cached.

    #2. When clearing the Themify cache I saw that php Fatal error. That problem was not caused by or related to BPS Pro. That was a separate php error having to do with Themify itself and maybe even WordPress itself.

    These 2 strange issues are related in that they both appear to be some sort of cache problem. Could be server-side cache or plugin cache. Not really sure about that, but I am leaning more towards some sort of server-side cache problem.

    So yes, BPS Pro is tested, working and compatible with PHP 8.0.2, but there are some php errors that I am currently fixing. These php errors are not really problems with the code and instead are code technicalities due to PHP 8.0.2 being more restrictive about code checking. Everything in BPS Pro works fine with PHP 8.0.2, but yep I am “fixing” the nick nack php errors that occur in PHP 8.0.2.

    On new BPS Pro installations the php errors occur because BPS Pro plugin option settings have not been saved yet by running the Setup Wizard. The php errors are not displayed on my testing server/website because debugging is not turned on. So when I install BPS Pro I do not see the php errors unless I turn On debugging. Then when I run the Setup Wizard most of the php errors no longer occur.

    On your server/website those php errors are displayed on a new installation of BPS Pro because debugging is enabled/turned On somewhere. I checked your wp-config.php file and debugging is not turned On in the wp-config.php file. So either the debugging is turned on at the server level or something else (a plugin or theme maybe?).

    You can continue to use PHP 8.0.2 if you are not seeing these 2 problems below any longer. If you are seeing these 2 problems below then yep switch back to PHP 7.4.

    #1. When going to the WordPress Plugins page you see BPS Pro plugin php errors randomly/intermittently.
    #2. When clearing Themify cache you see a Fatal php error.
