So I installed the Grace Themes Creative World Pro theme and the showcase works fine under PHP 8.0.
I made changes to the Theme Options > Homepage Slider. Just replacing the images and the text.
Showcase had the same issues as the other theme under PHP 8.0. Screenshot: h t t p s: //snipboard.io/YX6uld.jpg
Notice there are 15 dots for individual slides but there are only 5 slides. Not sure what is up with that.
So I reverted the website back to PHP 7.4 and VIOLA…it works.

This ‘truly’ blows my mind. Why would the default installed settings work fine under PHP 8.0 but once I make any changes, it doesn’t work under PHP 8.0 but does under PHP 7.4.
So I restored the default settings back to the installed theme settings and the page displays fine under PHP 7.4. Screenshot: h t t p s://snipboard.io/9NZusJ.jpg
I changed the website back to PHP 8.0 and refreshed the page. ARGH….it now has the same issue with the showcase not displaying properly and showing 12 dots!

Note: There are only two plugins and I had disabled both so it’s not a conflict with a plugin.
