Hello, my friends,
I would like to ask several questions related to JD Boston template.

Firstly I'm very new to joomdev, I wanted to try the quality of the products then I saw that the start with JD Boston would be good since it's a nice template.

I installed it then everything worked fine until I updated the astroid framework then problems come out. I solved some of them by searching here in the forum but others not including this error that I get in frontend and backend:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ':', expecting ';' or '{' in xxxxxx/plugins/system/jdbuilder/libraries/jdpagebuilder/Builder.php on line 52

The error happened after adding a new menu item.

How can I solve it?

my Joomla version is 3.9.16
installed Virtuemart 3.6.10

I would like to ask: Is JD Boston will get regular updates for future compatibility with Joomla 4?
Is it fine to use it with the jd page builder for a long term project?
thanks

Hello,

The error is NOT with JD boston but with JD builder installed in it. It's you reinstall JD builder by downloading it from our website and that should solve the problem.
All our products & templates will be made compatible with Joomla 4 as we move forward.
Thank You,

Actually you are using PHP version 5.6 and upgrading to 7.0 or above would fix this.

no need to reinstall.
Thanks,

Hello Chetan.
Thank you for replying to me.

- I installed JD page builder by downloading from here not prebuilt because I didn't use the quickstart since I have already a website for years.

- I use PHP 7.3

The issue solved by downgrading to PHP 7.2 which means it's not a solution where we as website owners want to be up to date without issues not to downgrade for compatibility.

If you have additional idea I would be happy to know from you :)

Regards

We are in the process of making it work with PHP 7.4, however it works fine with PHP 7.3 for the time being.
