To ensure best working compatibility, performance and support, all of our WordPress Plugins require the following WordPress and PHP versions to run smoothly.
You must have a self-hosted WordPress site (not WordPress.com).
Our WordPress Plugins will work on WordPress.com installations with the Business Plan or higher.
We actively support our Plugins running WordPress 4.8 or higher.
We actively support our Plugins running on any PHP version that is listed as a “Currently Supported Version” at http://php.net/supported-versions.php. At the time of writing, this is:
Given that older versions of PHP are no longer supported or maintained by the PHP team, it is strongly recommended that you keep your PHP version up to date, to avoid security and performance issues with your WordPress web sites in general.
If you are using PHP 7.0 and older, due to third party legacy Plugins, Themes and code, you will need to work with said third party products to ensure their code is up to date. Running outdated Plugins due to incompatibility with later PHP versions is another security issue.
Need WordPress Hosting?
Our Plugins work on most hosting environments. However, if you’re new to WordPress or looking for a recommendation, we recommend WP Engine, because:
- WordPress Versions are automatically updated, once tested to ensure stability,
- PHP Versions are automatically updated, once tested to ensure stability,
- WP-CLI is included, which some of our Plugins can optionally use for better performance.
