Web Form 2.10 Bld 5575 works only on...

My host provider is A2 Hosting, and they currently use PHP Version 8.1 for their web hosting. I was having trouble getting my CC Web Form (built with 2.10, Build 5575), notifications alert to display correctly when emailed to me. The email from the Notificationsl Alert was a bunch of indeciperable letters, (see attached). I found that if I downgraded my hosting software at A2 Hosing from 8.1 to 7.4, the emailed alerts provided by CC's Web Form Builder work fine, (again see example).

My thought to try this was from posts by Eric Rohloff and Wayan Jaya, who were working with various members who also had Web Form problems. I thank them for their service to the community. That said, I thought it might be useful for others to share my experience.

The server downgrade solution however, is not a permament, as "active support" for PHP version 7.4 ended in November 2021, and "Security Support" for version 7.4 ends November 2022.

So it would be great if CC could offer a Web Form version that was compatible with PHP version 8.1 (which lots of hosting providers use) - in the near future.

Thanks,
Jim

Hopefully CC will come up with a solution soon.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Hello Jim,

You're right on about the versions of php going deprecated. I would like to see wfb either roled into sd or update wfb to include Google fonts , v3 of ReCaptcha and all v5 html form elements. These have all been asked for in the past.
