Has this themes php been updated to 8.0 or above? It’s throwing an error on my wordpress dashboard. Php 7.4 will no longer available.
My hosting providers is telling me that the script needs updating and to contact the theme developer. My WordPress customizer isn’t now working with the theme since my php has updated to 8.0.
I am getting this :
Merlin_Logger::__wakeup() must have public visibility in /homepages/2/d4297014952/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/themes/gwangi/libs/merlin/includes/class-merlin-logger.php on line 194s error on my WordPress

Hi James Slater,
Thank you for buying our theme. We hope it will meet all your expectations! 🙂
I’m sorry to read you’re facing this issue. It’s best if we take a quick look at this. Could you create a new website user for us please? If possible with administrator capabilities so we can make a quick check of your settings. You can post the user name and password in your next reply and mark it as private to keep this between us.
Also, are we free to deactivate plugins for our tests? In this case, I invite you to make a backup before we investigate your website further in order to make sure you don’t loose any data if something goes wrong.
Thank you.January 10, 2023 at 10:53 #43904
Thank you James. To help us getting clues and find a solution to this issue, please activate logging on your website, just turn WP_DEBUG to true, by pasting the following code lines in your wp-config.php file, just before the line that says ‘That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging.’:
// Enable WP_DEBUG mode define( 'WP_DEBUG', true ); // Enable Debug logging to the /wp-content/debug.log file define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true ); // Disable display of errors and warnings define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false ); @ini_set( 'display_errors', 0 );
More on this in the following topic: Debugging in WordPress.

Thank you James.
However, I think that’s because you didn’t add these lines on the right place. I checked the
wp-config.phpfile, and the lines were not there. I had to add these lines myself. Anyway, all seems to work now. Could you check from your side, please?
These messages are PHP warnings, not errors. Unlike errors, warnings won’t break your website. They’re just messages aimed at developers to improve their code. By default, WordPress displays the warnings in the header, which can cause some issues.
In most case, hiding these messages solve this issue. You will still be able to consult the warnings and errors triggered by your website but these won’t appear on your pages anymore.

Indeed James, BuddyPress plugin displays the WordPress toolbar by default, but it can be hidden in BuddyPress settings. I’m glad to read you’ve been able to solve this.
If you have further questions or requests, feel free to create other forum topics. 🙂
