I have the latest csvExport 1.05 and just tried to use it after updating to PHP 8.1.12 and got the same error back about 30+ times I think

#38 - E_DEPRECATED: str_replace(): Passing null to parameter #3 ($subject) of type array|string is deprecated
/home/sagedev/domains/sagentic.dev/public_html/webadmin/plugins/csvExport/csvExport.php (line 178)
https://www.sagentic.dev/webadmin/admin.php

It exports the file but the majority of the values in the num column are an error (An unexpected error occurred: #38)

It seems random that some of the numbers showed up while others showed an error message like this:

num createdDate

Hi Kenny, 

Thanks for the report.  Can you try this fix and let me know if it works for you?

  • Search for "function _csvExport_escapeAsCSV"
  • Add the second line below: 
function _csvExport_escapeAsCSV($value) {
$value = $value ?? '';

Let me know if that works for you.  Thanks!

Hi Dave - 

There might be another issue that I am facing with php 8.1 and this plugin. It seems that all of my exports now change the characters to default windows encoding instead UTF-8 HTML entities such as:

  • Apostrophes are displayed as don’t  (don't)
  • Double spaces are displayed as Â

I'm not modifying or opening the files after export. Export from one installation and then import to another - so I'm pretty sure it's being generated like this
