Hi, we are upgrading with our ISP the version of PHP being used with our wordpress site. When we upgraded to PHP version 7.4 we got an error message which suggested it was a problem with the theme we were using. We rolled back to the old PHP version and I was able to update our site. Can you please advise the version of PHP that the Theme Display Version 1.4.1 works with – The error message was(from memory) the function must be a string?
If the theme we are using is too old, then can you recommend a similar theme we could use that will work with PHP version 7.4 or above. Many thanksJanuary 12, 2023 at 9:23 am #1378356
Hey Carolyn Millington,
Thank you for the inquiry.
The Display theme is only compatible with PHP 5.6. The support for the theme has been dropped a long time ago, so it hasn’t been updated for a while. You have to downgrade PHP or convert to a different theme such as Enfold.

Many thanks Ismael, Can you please advise if I can just buy and activate the Enfold theme (so it uses what is developed for the website already) or do we have to start from a blank site?January 13, 2023 at 8:50 am #1378535
or do we have to start from a blank site?
You will have to start from scratch because Enfold is a completely different theme, but you will probably save more time in the long run and end up with a much better website because in comparison to the much older Display theme, Enfold is a lot more advanced, secure and contains more options such as extended theme options, advance layout builder, custom element templates, performance options, privacy & cookies, Google addons etc. And if you choose to purchase the theme, you will get months of support here in the forum, in case you need a bit of assistance in building the site.

Many thanks for the speedy reply, looks like I’ll have my work cut out for me. I’ll be in touch if I need support. Really appreciate the offer of assistance.
