    Hey @snioefkhjw,

    Please accept our apologies for confusion. We changed these files to make our plugin compatible to php7. We will raise plugin version to 2.2. We did that thing instantly for new users to get their feedback. We solved following support request.


    Hello Mandeep,

    I have run into the same issue with Wordfence. Looks like the current version of file_folder_manager.php is already 2.4.

    Am not throwing the error for /lib/php/elFinder.class.php.

    Will ignore errors until everything settles down.
