function name change

  1. Leviatan21

    Hi to all, sorry my bad English I speak Spanish,

    As WP and phpBB user I'm building a BRIDGE, that makes possible to phpBB users comment in WP with the same session from phpbb, if you are interested in the code I can post the link to my GITHUB.

    Lately I have a problem :
    WP and phpBB and both have same functions and that's a problem with the phpbb validate_username function is that at phpbb have 3 different authentication method the most common is DB, and with that there is no problem, other methods need the "validate_username" function to work property

    As I see a big section for "deprecated functions" in WP, I think will be possible for WP to do it.

    Another function is "make_clickable", but that is easy to hack in phpBB.

    I hope you can understand me, and the problem.

    This really isn't a core idea.

    I would post this in http://wordpress.org/support/ as I'm pretty sure you can do this securely already, as there is a safe way to hook into the user API.

    I did not found a way to hack it, but may be those functions can be moved as "Pluggable Functions" by the WP Developers, as it is described at http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API#Pluggable_Functions
