  1. Fantastic plugin 🙂 because with dynamic tags I get the following errors [15-Apr-2022 17:14:29 UTC] PHP Deprecated: _register_controls has been deprecated since version 3.1.0. Use Elementor\Controls_Stack::register_controls() instead. in … /wp-includes/functions.php on line 5323

    • Hi Angel,
      Thank you for your feedback, but the modifications concerning the ‘_register_controls’ method were made in May 2021.
      Maybe another plugin!!

    • Hi Acha,
      Sorry but if you have Elementor pro installed dynamic tags are not loaded
      Otherwise go to EAC components settings page, Features tab and check that they are active

  2. Its ok plugin, i got now Dynamic tags on free elementor version, but its not working together with Woocommerce. This plugin is incompatible with the enabled WooCommerce feature ‘High-Performance order storage’, it shouldn’t be activated

    • Hello Renars,
      Thank you for your feedback
      Indeed, our WC plugins were installed before October 2023 and our plugin (EAC) is seen as incompatible.
      We will therefore add a test in the next version to find out if the ‘High-Performance Order Storage’ option is active and if so, the dynamic WC tags will be deactivated.

    • Hello Renars,
      After a quick evaluation of the impact of HPOS (Order storage) with our plugin, it turns out that it will be minimal, since the widget and dynamic tags don’t handle shop orders. We’ll be doing a thorough evaluation for version 2.2.1 for making our plugin compatible.
