I have a problem creating a new choice list / checkbox list field.
If I add new options with accents, occurs:
1) In frontend page, this options is showing with strange characters, not with accents…
2) In backend page, if I select this option and I save the post, when I reload the page, this option is not selected…

Anybody with this strange problem?

Thanks in advance!

Apologies for this, it must be something to do with entity encoding. I’ll make note of this and fix it in the next release.

Sorry about the delay on this. I’m looking into it now, and it’s unfortunately not the easiest problem to solve. In the meantime, can you try using the “name=value” format for your lists instead?

E.g., enter something like this into the “Choices” field for the field type options:

Entrée = entree

I do certainly want this to work without such a workaround, but it’s not clear yet why the values aren’t saving correctly, as there are multiple steps for that data to get from the page to the database.

Thanks for your patience.

Hi, just wanted to leave a note that this is not yet fixed in the new 1.1 release, but will be looked at for 1.1.1. Sorry for the delay, I tried to add a quick fix, but it had an undesirable HTML encoding effect across the rest of the plugin, so it needs more testing time.

I’ll update this thread when it’s fixed.

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. I have updated most of the problematic code – but some code would have broken in previous PHP versions, so I have temporarily disabled inheritance validation… 

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 hosted service.
