thanks for the report, did you set $dont_use_admin_config = 1? If yes, I confirm the bug and it will be fixed for the next release of DaDaBIK.
Temporary workaround: add to your config_custom.php file this line

$config['custom_css'] = '';

This workaround only works if you don't want to set the custom CSS through the new layout panel in the admin section, if you do it, your custom CSS won't work.

I don't think the bug is related to the PHP version, probably your PHP 8 settings are less informative about errors and warnings, but the warning is generated with PHP 8 as well.

Just to confirm my PHP8 wasn't set up correctly and so the error wasn't being shown.

The supplied fix has removed the error, thanks!
