We have received a couple of reports about Store Locator Plus® for WordPress not working with PHP 8.1. The WordPress PHP 8.1 compatibility is officially listed as “not compatible” in January 2022 and remains that way today (August 20th, 2022). There is no official release date for WordPress on PHP 8.0 or PHP 8.1 at this time.
Officially WordPress supports PHP 7.4. As such, Store Locator Plus® for WordPress is only officially supported on PHP 7.4.
Users of the Store Locator Plus® SaaS service don’t have to worry about this. We’ve taken care of ensuring the location service is running on a stable platform
WordPress PHP 8.0 Status
However, we have tested WordPress on PHP 8.0 along with the latest release of theStore Locator Plus® for WordPress plugin. It does appear to be working normally without notable warnings or errors. While not officially supported, we do believe you can run WordPress and Store Locator Plus® for WordPress on PHP 8.0 without any issues. With that in mind, we are providing support and patching services for the Store Locator Plus® for WordPress with PHP 8.0 installations.
