Deprecated functions?
« on: July 31, 2019, 07:11:02 AM »
Hello! 

I was somewhat put off when I tried to load new messages and was met with a bunch of this:

Quote
Deprecated: Function create_function() is deprecated in /home/theforao/public_html/Sources/Load.php on line 178

Deprecated: Function create_function() is deprecated in /home/theforao/public_html/Sources/Load.php on line 183

Deprecated: Function create_function() is deprecated in /home/theforao/public_html/Sources/Load.php on line 273

I mean, the rest of the page loads, but the slew of warning messages is a little off-putting.  Do others get this?

Yes.  For me, it worked fine earlier this morning, but now I'm getting the "deprecated function" comments.

Yes, it has infested the site (for me, and clearly for quite a few) and I strongly deprecate it.

My guess is changed/changing HTML standards that the forum software hasn't caught up with. I'll see what I can do about it.

Ok, update: It looks like a new version of PhP was released, and the code for the forum software we use isn't supported in that new version.

I'm working on either updating the code/upgrading the forum software or seeing if it's possible to roll-back the version of PhP we're using. The latter may not be possible since we're on a shared server with other people who might need it. I'll update as I find out more information.

Update: Fixed thanks to an amazingly quick response from Reclaim Hosting's support. You may need to reload the site, but it should look normal when you do.

Sounds like a euphemism for murder. Or Borg for murder: "Your functions will be deprecated."
I know it's a genus.

More Terminator-esque, to my ear. :)

Thank you, Eigen! At first I didn't see any forums, and was afraid they'd gone away.
