Support » Fixing WordPress » Deprecated constructor in PHP

  • Resolved skipperjohn


    I have just migrated my WP site and managed to solve the various problems on the way. Then at WP’s direction I upgraded my PHP to 7.01, now the following error appears on the Log-In page, and on the Dashboard, as well as at the top of the published page (except Home):

    Deprecated: Methods with the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP; WP_Categories_to_Tags has a deprecated constructor in /data/11/0/134/20/949835/user/980166/htdocs/wpsilverfly/wp-content/plugins/wpcat2tag-importer/wpcat2tag-importer.php on line 31

    I am not sure how to solve this and would appreciate some direction.
    Many thanks

    According to, that plugin hasn’t been updated in 4 years and seems to be abandoned by its developers. You should disable/remove the plugin.

    You can do that by deleting the directory `wp-contents/plugins/pcat2tag-importer/ via FTP or your hosting control panel’s file manager app.



    Many thanks, done and PROBLEM SOLVED!
