Besides, out of thousands (millions?) of users, you are the only one insisting on this. That alone should tell you something.

Quote from: MobileCS on June 04, 2017, 12:01:28 PMI'm confused ... PHP 5.3 "end of life" was almost 3 years ago - why would any webhost still be offering it as an option?

Quote from: CoreISP on June 03, 2017, 07:11:00 PMYou should upgrade PHP or ask your host to. PHP 5.3 is really old (EOL'ed quite a while ago), insecure and should generally not be used in production anymore.
Quote from: Arantor on June 06, 2017, 11:01:06 AMAlso, WordPress is looking st raising their minimum requirements, and they're already talking about promoting 7 as recommended rather than their current recommendation of 5.6.
Quote from: Arantor on June 06, 2017, 11:01:06 AMIt wasn't even shorthand syntax as such, it's actually the result of array dereferencing support for variable function calls being introduced and literally no one testing it on 5.3.....
QuoteThis release requires at least PHP 5.3 to function. Most hosts should have it or something newer. You can check which version of PHP that you are running by visiting the "Support and Credits" section of the Administration Center.
