I am very new to WordPress …
Is GP totally compatible with PHP 7?
Are there any specific PHP extensions that I should install?
I am trying to set up a WordPress site on a Ubuntu 16.04, which uses PHP 7, cloud server.

I’m using PHP 7 here on this site – works great.
GP and GP Premium are tested on everything between PHP 5.2 and the latest PHP 7 before every update.
There isn’t anything special that GP needs – just make sure you have the extensions WordPress in general needs.
Hope this helps 🙂October 11, 2016 at 9:17 am #234365George
Yes! Thank you!! One last question. I have installed GP and the Premium plugins on my brand new WordPress site, using PHP 7, https://altoplace.com. So far it seems to be working fine. I haven’t done much, except to set up an About page and one post. I have had a hard time finding a list of “PHP 7 extensions that WordPress in general needs.” I have installed a basic set, listed below. Could you look it over and let me know if you recommend any additional ones that I should install? As I mentioned before, I am brand new to WordPress and web development. I would like to make sure that I have a solid WordPress install before I start digging deeper.

I’m not a big server guy, but that looks fine.
If WordPress is functioning well, you’re good to go 🙂May 22, 2017 at 5:04 am #322148ULADZIMIR
Hey found this topic
We have https://www.jv-technoton.com/ hosted on bluehost
when upgrading to php 7 the trouble issued – the custom css doesn’t count and we had basic html layout (checking the box with using or not using standard GP styling doesn’t work too)
So I back up to 5.6
so if you have resolve such a case please let me knowMay 22, 2017 at 11:24 am #322328TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
How are you adding custom CSS? The PHP version shouldn’t make any difference. This site we’re on now is using PHP 7.May 24, 2017 at 10:39 pm #323825ULADZIMIR
I used WP build in CSS editor, then installed a plugin (simple CSS) as recommended. Nothing worked, so I did a back up to 5.6. More over When I used a build in editor I saw that custom CSS where aplyed in a while and than standard GP CSS dominate ^-)May 24, 2017 at 11:52 pm #323836TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
What exact CSS isn’t working for you?
