Error: [] operator not supported for strings

1 month 3 days ago #5068 by Goran Aasen
Hi there,
I am using Joomla 3.8.12, JNews Core 9.2.1, on php 7.1
jNews core has been working perfectly for years, but I have now got into trouble.

I get the error "[] operator not supported for strings" when I click on LISTS - Create/View Mailings.

This problem only happened after I upgraded to PHP 7.1

A quick Google on the problem pointed me in the direction of the PHP version. This as it seem to be a problem with other extensions aswell.

If I downgrade PHP to the outdated 7.0.31 it all works again.


Anyone know if there is there a way of fixing this in jNews as it is of course not desireable to stay with PHP 7.0.31 as that version of PHP is out of support since 2018-09-03

I will definitely try this out.

My Joomla backend does not show any updates, and your website still only show the 9.2.1 version.

Where do I find the 9.3.1 version?

It does not show probably because you need to click on check for updates.
anyway here is the link to the new package: https://joobi.co/joobi/user/updates/jnewscore9.3.1.zip

Thanks a lot, that version removed that specific error on php 7.1.
I will do some more testing, but it all look good so far.

Again, thanks a lot.
