    Replied to the thread v3.1.6 compatibility issues.
    Post
    We were all very pleased to see a long awaited update, but there's still a lot to be addressed. Have any of the issues above been noted drewm or rachelandrew?

    Thanks

    Is there an update on anything? Any news on add-ons being moved to GitHub? Any news about inviting some devs to contribute?

    Here are some of the PHP 7.4 compatibility issues the community spotted so far:
    1. PerchUtil::safe_stripslashes() uses get_magic_quotes_gpc(), which is a deprecated function.
    2. PHP 7.4 is now strict about the order of the parameters

    Sponsorware looks like an interesting idea to throw into the mix. I would just like to see something happen whatever model is chosen rather than let Perch fade away.

    About the above quote though. How is the current situation (uncertainty and…

    :D This is an issue I resolved myself, but I'm posting it here to save somebody else the couple hours I spent today trying to figure it out.

    It's been several years since we handed off to our clients a complex Runway site. Client recently asked us to…

    We’ve updated Perch with some compatibility fixes discovered through our support forums. This is an update to Perch and Perch Runway.

    Do I need to install this?

    Hi all. Thanks for your understanding with this. My first priority is getting Perch and Runway working correctly with PHP 7.4, and then moving our addons on top GitHub and making them available for PRs.

    The reality of this process is that PRs need…

    Drew, I think you'll find that members of the community will be more than happy to help out.

    However good communication is essential, so that the community is kept in the loop and is reassured that the future is not quite so bleak.

    I've used the new Stripe Omnipay gateway in another perch app, which functions very similar to shop. Now that they've said they won't be working on new updates I'll see if I can put together the new gateway for shop.

    It's a bit greedy perhaps but could we have both? There's a lot of love and enthusiasm for Perch in the community. Several have offered to help with development so moving some addons to GitHub would be a good move. I'd like to see…

    Thanks rachelandrew for taking the time to explain things. We've missed you around here.


    I think at the very least the community would like to see you:
    • Keep Perch compatible with the latest version of PHP, which you and Drew seem very willing to do

    I'm sorry to hear that there's no active development and that you have not been able to push forward with the Perch v4 product and its licensing model.

    I'd echo hus_hmd comments about PHP updates, communication and replies to some admin and licensing…

    I'd like some clarification on whether the Shop SCA issue is going to be addressed. This could have some ramifications for my clients that use Perch Shop.

    rachelandrew My main question is will you make sure that Perch keeps pace with PHP? I like it and want to continue using it but as PHP versions advance there have been issues that pop up with Perch. Perfect example is PHP 7.4 I have noticed a few…

    Hi all.

    Firstly, I'm really sorry about the radio silence. As Drew inferred in an earlier post I've not been involved in Perch (other than the fact I deal with the business admin and the servers) for some time. The product doesn't make enough money to…

    I agree. The fact that they aren't posting is a real worry, because obvious damage is being done (to brand and tribe) by radio silence.

    Drew and Rachel have always played their cards close to their chest, being careful not to…
