I’m having this issue where the wp_mp_templates table is not being generated on WordPress 4.2.2.

It works just fine in 4.1.1

Is this a bug?

Hmmm, that’s a strange one. Is that happening when installing from a clean install? I’ll try to recreate, but it seems a bit odd it would only be that table, as the code doesn’t differ from other table creation statements.

Yeah I tested it on a clean install, both versions, locally. I find it very weird, I have not done anything differently.

This is the error I’m getting when activating the plugin.

WordPress database error: [Specified key was too long; max key length is 767 bytes]

CREATE TABLE wp_mp_templates (
id varchar(255),
supports text,
visibility text,
) DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci

Only happens in version 4.2+

Could it be my database charset setting? Can you please advise me on what I should do?

Thank you.

Hi, sorry about this, it looks like this is relevant, which I admit I wasn’t aware of:


I’ve just pushed a new beta release which should get around this issue. I would really appreciate it if you could give it a shot and let me know if it is now working.


Thanks for your patience.
