Support » Plugin: WP Realtime Sitemap » WP Realtime Sitemap Not Working Running PHP 7

  • Resolved gingalley



    I have multiple sites using WP Realtime Sitemap and have just switched to PHP 7 and the plugin broke. Nothing showing on Sitemap pages now.

    I have read through other support tickets with the same issue, but have not found a solution yet.

    Running WP v4.7.3 and WP Realtime Sitemap v1.5.6

    Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks!

  • Disregard. I installed a different plugin that is compatible. :/

    Hi gingalley
    I’m having the same problem – which plugin did you move over to ?

    Sorry to advertise other plugins here but as long as it’s not fixed people will move or be really annoyed. I just make it easier.

    I moved to “WP Sitemap Page”. There are better plugins if you need an XML sitemap too but I wanted just a frontend page because I have another plugin for XML (Google Sitemap by BestWebSoft). For my use case it’s a 100% replacement of what “WP Realtime Sitemap” did.

    Hi guys.
    I’m not the author but while he is not ready i have simple patch for you.

    You will need edit /wp-content/plugins/wp-realtime-sitemap/wp-realtime-sitemap.php file. Find all constructions like $$arr[‘key’] (just find $$ in any text editor) and replace all with ${$arr[‘key’]}.
    It was help for me.

    Sorry for the late response @photomaldives. I installed WP SEO HTML Sitemap since I use WordPress SEO by Yoast Plugin. Works well.

    Thanks, guys.

    So we now have 1 hack and 2 alternative plugins. 🙂

    Thanks for doing the hack and also for encouraging users to use alternative plugins instead of my own!

    I am able to see how many people have downloaded the plugin, and the number of active installs of the plugin. Whilst I understand that it currently doesn’t work with PHP7, I have no way of testing it with PHP7 as my current hosting provider hasn’t updated to it yet.

    I don’t get paid to support, or write this plugin, I wrote it for myself, and made it available to others who may also find it useful.

    I have added donation links to the plugin, and whilst I don’t expect anyone to make a monetary donation, it is there for those who would like to and/or require additional support.

    @rincewind, Maybe you could put in the description that plugin is not compatible with php7?

    Appreciate your efforts for developing the plugin and will send you a donation in kind.

    @rincewind, Could I offer you some space on my server that is running php7 to develop and test?

    Plugin Author Rincewind


    of course that would make it much easier, I would need to be able to access the error_log as I would expect display_errors to be off.

    No problem. Contact me through our website and we can work out the details.

    v1.5.7 now fully works with php 7.

    You have Gingalley for providing the php 7 hosting and also myself to thank for this!

    If you would like to make a donation, you can do so here :

    This is entirely optional, but does mean that I am able to spend more time providing support and fixing issues than I would normally as working on this plugin doesn’t pay the bills.

    Yay! This is great news. Happy to help for such a wonderful plugin.

    Will be installing back on ALL my sites.

    Thanks again @rincewind for the great plugin.

    Daniel – I still get this error for having incompatibility with php 7 even with v 1.5.7:

    35 | WARNING | Use of deprecated PHP4 style class constructor is not supported since PHP 7.

    How can I fix line 35? Thanks

    @larkspur can you please delete the plugin, and then reinstall it from scratch and try it again?
