[BUG] Akismet 2.3.0 - deprecated functions in main php file (2 posts)

    In Akismet 2.3.0 there are two non-updated functions in the akismet.php file, which have been deprecated since WP 2.8

    If running WP with WP_DEBUG = true, then the main WP functions file catches them and displays page top warnings in admin, and http 500 errors public side.

    The two deprecated functions are -

    register_sidebar_widget (3 instances)
    register_widget_control (1 instance)

    all four instances need wp_ prepended to the function name

    This errors may not manifest if you don't have a widget active and only use template tags in your sidebar.

    ( ... am thinking we need a trac system for bug reporting WordPress supported plugins).
