Any info on when Helix 3 will be fixed so when the site has been upgraded to PHP 8 and Joomla 4, I do not get an error when a registered user tries to log in?

Hello sydk2017,

i am not from the support staff.

If you really need PHP8, you can use my patches i provided to Joomshaper at github.

If you are able to do some changes to some file, you can use the template with php8.

I have already made a Request on JoomShapers github-page with patches for this.
https://github.com/JoomShaper/Helix3/pull/112

Changes: https://github.com/JoomShaper/Helix3/pull/112/commits/079bb8f33d3c39b1c39ebc1d0bdb5f32da3e1a72

-> templates/shaper_helix3/html/mod_login/default.php https://github.com/JoomShaper/Helix3/blob/c08dd78dfccb18d70e2223850f57557e32eeb81b/templates/shaper_helix3/html/mod_login/default.php

-> templates/shaper_helix3/html/mod_login/default_logout.p https://github.com/JoomShaper/Helix3/blob/c08dd78dfccb18d70e2223850f57557e32eeb81b/templates/shaper_helix3/html/mod_login/default_logout.php

As soon as Joomshaper has updated the template, these temporary patches are overwritten with those of Joomshaper.

With kind regards and have a nice day

Hello sydk2017

It is not scheduled yet. PHP 8 compatibility will be delayed for Helix3. Please use PHP 7.4.

Best regards

I don't beleive in Santa Claus - but I beleive in the last 6 years I've spend plenty of money with Joomshaper with Agency and developer subscriptions and this is something they need to make a priority.

Based on the situation that the Github repository for Helix 3 is orphaned and my reports as well as patches from February are not included until today, I assume that Helix 3 is end of life.
The free template could possibly get an update.
With the paid ones I have no more hope.

Hopefully they will stay on top of Helix 3 - the ultimate template is terrible, not user friendly at all, and I have nothing but problems with it.

I'm not a fan of Helix Ultimate. The ultimate template is terrible and I have always Problems. The Helix 3 has to stay, otherwise I'll have problems in the future.
