This plugin logs the usage of deprecated files, functions, and function arguments. It identifies where the deprecated functionality is being used and offers the alternative if available.
This is a plugin for developers. WP_DEBUG is not needed, though its general usage is strongly recommended. Deprecated notices normally exposed by WP_DEBUG will be logged instead.
This plugin also logs incorrect function usage, which WordPress started reporting in 3.1.
This is young software. It works, but there’s a lot left on the todo (check out the Other Notes tab). Have an idea? Let me know.
These are the various things on the @todo:
- Plugin identification. Also, an unobstrusive note on plugins page next to said plugins.
- Perhaps the ability to auto-purge the log.
- Ability to filter on file or plugin in which the deprecated functionality is used.
- Offer some kind of better multisite support.
I will prioritize these tasks based on feedback, so let me know what you’d like to see.
It's perfect for updating plugins code with the last functions and the best security. All wordpress developers need this golden tool.
Just what I needed to quickly help to identify issues filling up log files.
