Reminder note: Don’t forget to update your PHP to version 5.3 or greater

EngineThemes_update_php - WordPress application themes

As many of you have known, each new PHP version provides better practices as well as new features. Besides, running a WordPress site, it also requires a minimal or specific PHP version.

Not too long ago, the PHP team has introduced the release of version 5.3. Though they have updated to a higher version, it’s still a major improvement in the 5.X series which includes a lot of new features and bug fixes. From now on, EngineThemes’ products only support PHP from version 5.3. Therefore, to help your site deliver the best performance, please remember to update your PHP to the version 5.3 or greater.

Moreover, we’ve received some questions asking about the error below. This happened due to the outdated PHP, just update it and everything will be fine.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STATIC, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or ‘$’ in /homepages/8/d262898456/htdocs/redmuseo/wp-content/themes/freelanceengine/includes/aecore/wc_integration/class-wc-integrate.php on line 27

Updating your PHP, you can improve your speed, security and compatibility. Check out this link to get more details regarding the version 5.3.

QAEngine’s Price Change

Maybe some of you are aware that QAEngine has also been published in ThemeForest, just like its older brother WordPress forum theme ForumEngine. This has led to a pricing difference between the two places. In order to amend this issue, the price of QAEegine in EngineThemes is now reduced to $49. This will be effective right after this blog is published.

For those who have already purchased QAEngine with a higher price, don’t worry yet. We promise to compensate you with a FREE extension, which is still a work in progress at the moment and will be released soon. And we believe that you wouldn’t be disappointed with it.

Please accept our apology for this inconvenience and thank you very much for your understanding.

P.S. Don’t forget to tell us which features you are most excited about in this update in the below comment section. ;)
