Hi there,

Since I update my website to WP 5.3, a big error message appears on my header.

Warning: Declaration of PLL_Walker_Dropdown::walk($elements, $args = Array) should be compatible with Walker::walk($elements, $max_depth, ...$args) in /home1/macpacman/public_html/wp-content/plugins/polylang/include/walker-dropdown.php on line 94

It disappear when I deactivate Polylang but then I loose the multi language menu.

Polylang asked me to create a ticket here.

That error message is a result of changes in WP 5.3 and the Polylang plugin will need to be updated to be compatible.

You can tell their support team to look at WP 5.3: Introducing the spread operator

Thank you for your report about this issue.

Trac is meant for bugs an enhancements in the core WordPress software though, and not in plugins made for it. That said, the Polylang team have put out a response to the warnings you are seeing at
