of course, in so far that php 7 will be used by WordPress. BuddyPress’s dev follow the same route.
WordPress and PHP7
Good question! This is likely to being looked at by the core team.
See this post which describes what is being done by the WordPress core team: https://make.wordpress.org/core/2015/09/10/wordpress-and-php7/
My guess is the BuddyPress core team are doing something like that. Maybe @djpaul can add something here?
We’ve been testing against PHP7 nightly releases for a long time. It helps that our PHP is newer than most of WordPress’, so we have less really old stuff to migrate.
You can view our test coverage on https://travis-ci.org/buddypress/BuddyPress/ (“PHP: nightly” is PHP7), as you can see, there’s currently a failure with one test that we need to fix. It looks fairly straightforward to fix, and we’ll do that soon.
This one test aside, to the best of knowledge, yes, BuddyPress works with PHP 7.
It looks as though BuddyPress has got PHP 7 in the bag 🙂
@danbp, @henrywright, @djpaul thank you guys, it is glad to hear that. you are always the best~
I just installed WP Engine PHP Compatibility Checker plugin on one of my A2 hosting sites which is running PHP 7.08. 78 errors and 11 warnings from the Buddypress 2.6.11
Who do I send the Checker log file to (if anyone)?
