When adding the Bulk editing tools for the comment module requirements the following error is displayed in the admin section:

GridFieldBulkManager::addBulkAction() must be an instance of string, string given, called in /public_html/comments/code/CommentAdmin.php on line 60

A quick fix was to change line 184 in GridFieldBulkManager.php from:

function addBulkAction( string $name, $label = null, $handler = null, $config = null)


function addBulkAction($name, $label = null, $handler = null, $config = null)

It needs further testing but got the modules working together for me...

Yeah that's my bad, PHP doesn't actually allow type hinting for scalar. Depending on the environment, this causes error. All should be running fine now, thanks for spotting it!


No problem, glad to help :)
