Yes. PHP 5.5 or 5.6 currently.

Exclamation

Might I suggest the system requirements specifically mention PHP 7 is not compatible, the documentation and website both say PHP 5 and above which is a bit frustrating after just provisioning a LAMP7 server for my colleagues.

Has Interspire effectively abandoned development on this product? There have basically been just minor updates for quite some time.

Yes, it's abandoned. They dont seem to have any more plans for it...

BigCommerce sent out a marketing blurb today, and I discovered by accident that included in the code was this little gem (invisible when viewing the email)...

HTML Code:
<div class="mktEditable" id="preview-text" style="display:none; color:#ffffff; line-height:1px; max-height:0px; max-width:0px; opacity:0; overflow:hidden; ">
Interspire's Email Marketer is reaching its end of life.
</div>

Nothing has changed. Email Marketer is still a maintained product.

I don't know anything about that blurb and my boss (Director Client Success on the BC side) doesn't know anything about it. I will dig around today and try to clear things up.

Update: The Bigcommerce marketing department was just as confused as I was with that blurb. Apparently they copied a survey template from years ago (when the other Interspire products were ending) and didn't notice the Email Marketer information in the preview text. Again let me repeat, nothing has changed with the Email Marketer status. It is still active, there is still an update in development.

Here is a reply from the PR manager of Bigcommerce:
+++

Hi

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. We did a little digging and found some erroneous code in the preheader text of a recent email you received about participation in a holiday survey, but I want to confirm that Email Marketer is still an active product. I apologize for any confusion that may have occurred as a result of this error, and am happy to address any additional questions you may have.

Thanks,

--

I've explained the TinyMCE issue in another thread but copying here:

The community version is Open Source (LGPL 2.1) which end users can add to IEM at no cost (since the end result is not being sold). We can't use that version because the end software is a commercial software.

The Premium has a limit on the number of "Monthly Active Users" of 5,000 and a cost of $0.40 per user / per month.

The Pro has a limit on the number of "Monthly Active Users" of 5,000 and a cost of $1.00 per user / per month.

The Enterprise has unlimited "Monthly Active Users"

What is a monthly active user?
Monthly active users are the total number of unique users that load the TinyMCE editor at least once in a month.

Their "monthly active user" would be the same as an Email Marketer user account.

This is the main reason why TinyMCE hasn't been updated. We have been looking at other options to change to.

------
Based on their change in licensing it would require us to change 1) Mandatory support renewals 2) Higher renewal costs
