The last version of PHP-Fusion, v7.02.07, was released way back on 18 June 2013.  Since then, they've come out with newer versions, the latest being v9.  However, some of us think that the newer versions are crap.  They don't work as trouble-free as v7, and the only theme that I like & use (Gillette) is not available for the newer versions.

The problem is, PHP-Fusion v7.2.07 was written for PHP v5 & MySQL v4.  But PHP is now up to v8, and MySQL is now also up to v8, however, PHP-Fusion v7.2.07 works with neither of them.


Welcome to CHROME-FUSION

Chrome-Fusion, now up to v2, is the stock PHP-Fusion v7.02.07 released in 2013, but updated to work with PHP v7.2.x, although I am running it under PHP v7.4.0 with only 1 infusion not working.

Chrome-Fusion v2 also adds the following NEW features which PHP-Fusion v7.02.07 did not have:

  • Moderators (in addition to the administrators)
  • SMTP encryption (TLS / STARTTLS / SSL)
  • Separate email addresses for the administrator and system emails
  • PHP 7.1.x support
  • PHP 7.2.x support

Chrome-Fusion v2 continues to be developed, with support for PHP v8.x in the works.
