MasterPress 1.4.0 is now available

6th May 2024

This release has a focus on improving compatibility with PHP 8.2. The introduction of inheritance validation to PHP produced a lot of warnings when using MasterPress with PHP 8.2.

Plugin Requirements

MasterPress requires a minimum of WordPress version 4.9, MySQL 5.6, and PHP version 5.6.20.

We also recommend that PHP is configured to use a memory limit of 64MB per request (128MB may be required for sites with higher complexity).

This plug-in is not compatible with the WordPress.com hosted service.
