Critical Error when adding person

I’ve sent an email to support but haven’t heard back, so hoping to get some help here.

This occurs every time we try to add a new person using the EE4 Add on for people management. Open the page, click Add person and the next thing is the WordPress Critical Error notification.
Seems related to that $new_person parameter.

We have added people before without error, so I’m unsure if it is related to updates in EE, or lack of update in the People admin add on etc.

PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Unknown named parameter $new_person in /wp-content/plugins/event-espresso-core-reg/core/admin/EE_Admin_Page.core.php

We are running EE version Version 4.10.38.p
People Add-On 1.0.7.p

Hi there,

It is due to an update, but not from Event Espresso. Your server details show:

PHP Version: 8.0.22

Currently, Event Espresso is not fully compatible with PHP8 and I recommend switching down to PHP7.4

We are working on full PHP8 compatibility and I’ll create a ticket to get the above fixed, however, if you stay on PHP8 you’ll likely find other similar issues on other areas of EE (for example, the invoice/receipt PDF’s are not compatible with PHP8 due to the library we use for generating them).

The support post ‘Critical Error when adding person’ is closed to new replies.
