« on: November 22, 2017, 07:17:04 AM »
Can someone kindly confirm if SMF v2.0.15 is compatible with PHP v7.1.11.

No one as far as I know has definitively tested all of SMF 2.0.14 or .15 on PHP 7.1

There are unconfirmed reports that certain search functions may not work on 7.1 but it's not clear if that's 7 and 7.1 or just 7.1. (Likely both)
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that. May I ask what version of PHP you would recommend using?

Me personally, I'd actually stick to 5.6 on the basis that even though the core might support 7, lots of addons are still not entirely ready.

Thank you, your advice is much appreciated :)

I have been running the latest php 7.1 across all smf sites

So have I. My site is on php 7.1 since this summer on SMF 2.0.14 and now on 2.0.15.

Just a few 'issues' with Mods that I needed to fix myself:
- Tinyportal
- shoutbox

and this one in SMF

Quote
admin menu search method: '[] operator not supported for strings' :
Bestand: ./Sources/ManageSearch.php

Code: (Find) [Selecteer]
Code: [Select]
        $context['fulltext_index'] = '';
        if ($request !== false || $smcFunc['db_num_rows']($request) != 0)

Code: (Replace) [Selecteer]
Code: [Select]
        $context['fulltext_index'] = array();
        if ($request !== false || $smcFunc['db_num_rows']($request) != 0)

We don't yet have a compelling reason to upgrade past version version 5.6 but I will certainly refer back to what's been posted here when we do. Thanks for the info :)

For me it is speed/performance which also affects SEO.  I had an article on it here https://www.smfhacks.com/index.php/topic,9403.0.html

I think it also depends on your mods; TinyPortal needed some serious updates earlier in the year to make it work properly on 7.
