Hi, I am using Weaver Xtreme 5.0.6 on a client site, running WordPress 5.9.
Today I tried to update PHP from 7.4 to 8.0. The front end of the site loads ok, but the backend (admin portal) has fatal error and does not load at all. Here is the error from the error log file:
[19-Feb-2022 02:18:57 UTC] PHP Fatal error: Uncaught ArgumentCountError: Too few arguments to function WP_Widget::__construct(), 0 passed in /home/xxxxxx/public_html/saa/wp-includes/class-wp-widget-factory.php on line 61 and at least 2 expected in /home/xxxxxx/public_html/saa/wp-includes/class-wp-widget.php:162

Can you please let me know what might be causing this, or if it is a theme/required plugin issue then maybe a new version is required?

It is possible that there is some compatibility issue with the Xtreme Plus plugin as it shows in the error dump.
I will try to track this down, but it will be a significant delay before I have the resources to look into this- perhaps a month or more.July 26, 2022 at 01:58 UTC - Views: 53 #70997
Hi @Weaver, have you made any progress on fixing the PHP errors in the theme?
PHP 7.4 is only actively supported until 28 Nov 2022, which is only 4 months away. Is it on your timeline to fix these errors before then? The site is currently using version Weaver Xtreme 5.0.6.

The error message you provided seems to imply that your site is using the Weaver Xtreme Plus [social] shortcode.
I’ve just done extensive testing of the social shortcode, and cannot generate any PHP 8 errors (using PHP 8.0.8).
Can you provide just how you are using the short code (eg, just [social] or [social with parametes]. And which social icons do you have checked to use in the option?
So, as far as I can tell, there are no issues with using the [social] shortcode with PHP 8.July 28, 2022 at 22:27 UTC - Views: 37 #71003
Hi Weaver, thanks for your reply.
I didn’t build this site, I just inherited it when the client wanted a new person to support the site.
In Appearance -> +Xtreme Plus settings, on the Socials tab all fields are empty. On the website I can’t see the inclusion of any social icons and I don’t think the client has any social media accounts at all.
In Pages, the home page does not use the socials shortcode at all, and I can’t find it used anywhere in the widgets either.
Can you do me a favour, can you do another test where there are no entries in the socials fields of +Xtreme Plus settings, and see if that generates an error when using PHP 8.0? For a page with [socials] shortcode, and a page without [socials] shortcode.
Thank you, hopefully we can figure out what is going on.

I’ve already tested just [social]. And there is nothing to test on pages without [social] on sites with Weaver Xtreme Plus installed.
It would be helpful if you could provide a link to the site’s page that generates the error dump. You can use a private reply if you need to keep the URL private.
It is very difficult to diagnose problems by trying to recreate them on a test site. It usually requires at the least read access to the problem site/page/post.August 9, 2022 at 02:05 UTC - Views: 23 #71048Private ReplywebcoastParticipantThis reply has been marked as private.August 9, 2022 at 16:59 UTC - Views: 12 #71049
I need clarification of:
The front end of the site loads ok, but the backend (admin portal) has fatal error and does not load at all.
and what you said in the private post that the Home page works but several others do not. The the other pages crash when viewing the page? If they only crash on the admin side, I don’t really understand what that means. By editing the page? What is the mechanism for getting to the admin page?August 9, 2022 at 18:50 UTC - Views: 11 #71050Private ReplyWeaverKeymasterThis reply has been marked as private.
