JoomShaper’s Plan on the Latest PHP Compatibility For Templates and Extensions

Hello good people! Hope y’ll are enjoying the woodsy aroma of Fall in the air and the holiday season! To make your time even better we are here with a sneak peek of JoomShaper’s plan regarding the latest PHP compatibility for all our templates and extensions.

Since its inception, JoomShaper has been on a constant journey to keep up with the ever-evolving web trends and help you get the best for your Joomla site. So far we have also brought about numerous updates and improvements to our existing templates and extensions to ensure you a hassle-free experience. And making all our templates and extensions compatible with the latest PHP version has been at the top of our priority list.

So here is a prospective look at what we are planning concerning the PHP 8 & 8.1 compatibility updates of your favorite Joomla templates and extensions.

Helix Ultimate Based Templates

All our Helix Ultimate based users can now join the party queue as the wait is almost over! Find yourselves gravitating toward the magnificent templates of Helix Ultimate as you can now expect to get the much-awaited PHP 8.0 compatibility in both Joomla 4 & Joomla 3 and PHP 8.1 compatibility with only Joomla 4 within the next three months - December,  January, and February. 

Please note that all our Helix Ultimate based templates have previously been updated to make Joomla 3 & 4 compatible.

Helix 3 Based Templates

Many of our users are also using Helix 3 and Helix 3-based templates and we haven’t overlooked you at all. While PHP 8.0 & 8.1 compatibility in Joomla 4 for the Helix 3 template framework is in the offing, those who are already using Helix 3-related templates can also rejoice as we are coming up with PHP 8 compatibilities for you too! All you have to do is hold your patience as this will be taken care of right after all the Helix Ultimate templates have been updated, that is, within the next three months after February 2023. Therefore, after the updates, you can enjoy PHP 8.0 compatibility in both Joomla 4 & Joomla 3 and PHP 8.1 compatibility with only Joomla 4. 

Extensions

Although some of our extensions had previously been geared up to suit the latest stable PHP and Joomla 4 compatibility, others were still waiting for the uplift. But that shouldn’t worry you anymore as we have also chalked out rigid plans to update all our extensions to the latest PHP version. You can expect your favorite extension to be completely ready to hit the floor by next February!

How will these updates be accessible? Will we have to purchase another template if our subscription has lapsed, or will they be available if we have already paid for the template?

Hi Fortress,
Those who have active subscriptions will get the updates automatically, those who haven’t, need to renew the license to get the updates.

Hi, will updating Helix Ultimate to be compatible with PHP 8.0 or higher entail renewing a license?
On the other hand, don't you think they are late?
Thank you for your response!!

Hello Rafael,
Our dev team is working on the compatibility issues and will be released when they’re done. Thanks in advance for your patience.
For getting every update, you have to have an active subscription. Getting an update of PHP 8.0 compatibility is no different.

"Since its inception, JoomShaper has been on a constant journey to keep up with the ever-evolving web trends and help you get the best for your Joomla site. So far we have also brought about numerous updates and improvements..."

What are you talking about here?

Event the last released "usable" (which was released month ago - in submission you promissed to release one template/month) templates are not working with the newest Joomla version and also Joomshapers newest Pagebuilder version. So what are you really talking about here?

i remember once again - if you are not willing to update Indigo in a Time of 90 Days (you have till now, you will loose one of your customers. you had renewed my membership because you didn't get up and running in a whole year, and that time is also about to expire.

Where are the Tmeplates, where are the Uodates, Where is the problemless running Front-Edit Version.

Let me give you samples - artion not running like it should after update. Indiogo depends even years after telling you, that you just should update the non commercial version, you did not.. the PB 4 .. I don't even want to mention the problems with it.

you told 2 Month ago us to bring a e-commerce l version of pb.. so it seems like a comedy. There is not a really working pagebuilder anymore. the one is too old, the other seems to fresh to run.. but you will bring a e-commerce version.. sorry.
So what are you telling us here?

When do you plan to provide information about developments? Lots of sites bullshit because of SP4. And it's really bad for you that it's taking this long. We await your official full disclosure. Hundreds or even thousands of sites were turned upside down because you published the SP4 version before it was more stable, without taking into account the opinions of users and sites. Joomshaper, which I loved so much before, disappointed me a lot. It's not all about money, it's about reputation.

I hope it will return to the old order, you will make us users happy.

Regards

Hi guys,
before to have new features would be good to investigate and solve all Bugs like this:
https://github.com/JoomShaper/helix-ultimate/issues/304
It seems to be a "not reported" Helix 2.0.11 + SP Page Builder 4.0.6 bug, not related to the PHP version.
No answers from JoomShaper support = We are loosing customers day by day > Unfortunately we have to investigate for alternatives ...
