Dashboard Incoming Links, Plugins, and WordPress Blog all Deprecated (6 posts)

    When I go in my Dashboard and expand either the "Incoming Links", "Plugins", or "WordPress Blog" drop-down menus, I get the same message over 100 times:

    Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /home/content/xx/xxxxxxx/html/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php.

    When I Google Simplepie, it reveals that it is a PHP component of the Atom Publishing Protocol, and Atom Feed Readers.

    I have had the Atom Publishing Protocol enabled for over 1 year, but don't remember why I need it. So, does anybody know?

    1.) Who updates SimplePie to the latest version? Me, or WordPress?

    2.) What will I miss if I disable the Atom Publishing Protocol?

    3.) I don't ever remember installing SimplePie or a related plugin, so where did it come from?

    4.) Is there a more current version of SimplePie for WordPress 3.3.2, OR will it be part of the upcoming WordPress 3.4?

    Does anybody have answers to any of the above questions?

  2. WordPress will upgrade it. In fact, there is an upgrade to SimplePie in 3.4 - http://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/19890

    Ipstenu,

    Thanks for your response. I read someone else's forum post recently stating that they had enabled the WordPress Beta Tester plugin, and could not get it to install 3.4. Do you know if that is still the case (it was last updated on June 5th, 2011)?

  4. You could just grab it directly.

    I've been running the beta tester plugin on my test site and have no issues grabbing the beta, just upgraded to the beta 3
