What’s New in LiveWhale 2.9.2

This patch release includes bug fixes for editors and front-end users as well as some accessibility enhancements and work on PHP 8.1 compatibility.

Accessibility improvements

Behavior adjustments

  • Added code to prevent users from adding anchor tags with id=”global” to WYSIWYG fields. Anchors with this ID create a conflict with Javascript code.
  • In the back-end, sidebar filters will now always show the “By group:” filter, even if your current group is the only one containing content of the current type.


  • Fixed an issue where users with permissions to edit their own group weren’t easily able to access the group and user editors, especially when switching groups.
  • Fixed an issue where requiring custom fields in a back-end editor could sometimes prevent saving of links or linked copies.
  • Fixed a bug for calendars using the front-end location filter would show a location’s ID rather than its name when selected.
  • Fixed an issue where event RSVPs with payments attached could be mis-calculated for dollar amounts greater than $1,000.
  • Fixed an issue where X-LIVEWHALE-CUSTOM fields in linked calendars would not import properly when containing certain characters in the variable name.
  • Fixed the ALT text that displayed for images in an editor when more than one image was attached.
  • Fixed the “Copy to clipboard” button in the Privacy settings for “Anyone with the Link.”
  • Fixed an issue where the widget editor preview could sometimes not paginate properly when setting group=”me”.
  • Fixed an edge case issue where a file include that starts with a noscript could have the noscript dropped from the output.
  • Fixed a bug that separated sibling XPHP variables in WYSIWYG fields and wrapped each in parent markup.
  • LiveWhale CMS Only: Fixed an issue where an additional LiveWhale form attached to an event RSVP would not have its required fields validated if none of the additional form fields were filled out.


  • Updated codebase for PHP 8.1 compatibility.
