    Since PHP8 is rolling out I thought I would test if plogger would run on PHP8. There are some minor issues so I started a new project for it.

    Not very actively developing. I'm using plogger for a few of my website and since I like running the latest version I updated my own plogger sites and created this GitHub project so others can also use this when their PHP version gets updated.

    Use at own risk!

    This announcement came out just as I had uploaded the PHP7 files by my webhost.

    I thought maybe take one step at a time. So that went fairly well.

    I can change theme and opted for the one that looks similar to my website. I uploaded a group of images and they are there.

    BUT I cannot view them. When I look at the Plogger view, I see all the placeholders, for images and navigation, labels are visible but the icons for navigation and the images do not show. [see]

    So now I have had added the PHP8 files in a new database and the web host has upgraded my access to PHP8. Sadly, I am getting no luck with PHP8.

    Is there an obvious step I have overlooked i in the PHP7 install?

    I'm still working on getting to display my images in the PHP version of Plogger. I came across on older post.
    General Support: PHP GD extension is not installed, it is required to upload images.
    plog-includes/lib/phpthumb/phpthumb.functions.php line 362
    if (ereg_match('bundled \((.+)\)$', $gd_info['GD Version'], $matches)) {

    if (preg_match('/bundled \((.+)\)$/', $gd_info['GD Version'], $matches)) {

    Just found in my file phpthumb_functions (which is the last rendition installed) at lines 525 to 536 this code.

    public static function gd_version($fullstring=false) {
    static $cache_gd_version = array();
    if (empty($cache_gd_version)) {
    $gd_info = gd_info();
    if (preg_match('#bundled \((.+)\)$#i', $gd_info['GD Version'], $matches)) {
    $cache_gd_version[1] = $gd_info['GD Version']; // e.g. "bundled (2.0.15 compatible)"
    $cache_gd_version[0] = (float) $matches[1]; // e.g. "2.0" (not "bundled (2.0.15 compatible)")
    } else {
    $cache_gd_version[1] = $gd_info['GD Version']; // e.g. "1.6.2 or higher"
    $cache_gd_version[0] = (float) substr($gd_info['GD Version'], 0, 3); // e.g. "1.6" (not "1.6.2 or higher")

    So wondering if this is where my failed image display is occurring?

    Should I dabble in this area?
