    Hello all,

    I am new to wordpress and still very much in the first steps of learning the ropes for how to run websites with it, so if anyone gives me a tip, please, bear this in mind.

    I recently installed wordpress 3.0.5 on a XAMPP localhost on my pc and during my experimentation decided to switch themes from the basic twenty ten to something else (fusion theme)

    Shortly after I get these three notices above my dashboard, in the qu8ickpress box, and in incoming links:

    Notice: register_widget_control is deprecated since version 2.8! Use wp_register_widget_control() instead. in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-includes\functions.php on line 3237

    Notice: Undefined index: action in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-content\themes\fusion\functions.php on line 120

    Notice: has_cap was called with an argument that is deprecated since version 2.0! Usage of user levels by plugins and themes is deprecated. Use roles and capabilities instead. in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-includes\functions.php on line 3321

    The first of the three above appears most frequently.

    Any suggestions anyone?

    Use another theme. That one is old and outdated.

    Thanks for the advice, I tried another old theme just now and similiar notices appeared. However, what if I like an old theme? how would I still use it and fix this notice?

    You'd have to go through every one of the theme's template files and adapt the deprecated code to use the correct current alternatives.

    Hmm, Like I said, total rookie, I´ve created a child theme of the problem theme, is there any way to simplify this adaptation work using the child theme?
