Call this a Tech Thursday update: Finally updated to PHP8.2

Posted By on September 28, 2023

It is not Tech Friday, but I’ve been fighting through the nightmare of updating my blog’s very OLD modified WordPress theme so I could update it to PHP 8.2 running on my server (manually modifying theme code).

PHP 8.2

Believe me, it was not without pain and suspect this is not the end of things (still problems, especially with archived posts, widgets and plugins) … but this was a learning and coding experience.frustrated emoji The next move might need to be to modernize to a WP block theme (I don’t like them), but then again, I’m not good with change.

Instructions after updating PHP


Desultory - des-uhl-tawr-ee, -tohr-ee

  1. lacking in consistency, constancy, or visible order, disconnected; fitful: desultory conversation.
  2. digressing from or unconnected with the main subject; random: a desultory remark.
