Hello, I am running with Joomla 3.10.11 and PHP 8.0.22

unfortunately I get Function get_magic_quotes_gpc() error in the backand when i click on Invoice manager. It works fine with PHP 7.4 but not PHP 8

In php.ini magic_quotes if off ... so what could be the problem?

Our provider is switching defenitiv in 2 month from php 7.4 to 8.0.22 so we need a solution .... soon as possible.

Thanks
Carsten

Yes, it will come shortly. We needed to make the J3 PHP 8 upgrade first.

ETA is October.

    If it can help I just commented out the following line everywhere in helpers.php as it seems useless and PHP 8 works fine on our devel website.

    //$quotes = get_magic_quotes_gpc();


    Don't know why Germinal does not upgrade its components but it's also impossible to get in touch with him. We tried lots of time these two years to get paid upgrades and special works without success.

    That's a pity because IM and AT are great components which should provide good returns with the subscribers.

    I think that we have to find alternatives if we want to move to joomla 4 or maybe that some other software company could buy them with a correct support and upgrade path.

    Hope it helps anyway

    Hi Jean, thanks for your help. I was trying to commented out the following in helpers and invoice.php so far its not the error msg anymore but the invoice content is not loading anymore its seems like a problem to get thes information out of the database.
    I switched in 7.4 and it works. My provider is changing PHP in November to version 8 so I have to find a solution otherwise I have to change the invoicing solution. You are right it was a great plugin for joomla I hope that they will fix it and make a new version for Joomla4 and PHP 8+

    Thanks
    Paul

    Hello Germinal, thanks for your feedback. I just was testing version 3.3.0 I can see invoices now also with PHP 8.0 thats perfect.
    There seems still a problem with generating PDF files and also E-Mail funktion doesnt work anymore.
    Do you have any Idea what could be the problem?

    Thanks
    Carsten

      I will check, thanks.
      The email not working is probably related to the PDF not working (both issues are probably the same)

    Hello,

    Please, download the new version of the DomPDF library, 2.0.0, that you will find in your private downloads area.

    You must unzip it and replace it for the current /comonents/com_invoices/helpers/dompdf folder that you have currently in your installation.
