Name conflict - get_settings() (2 posts)

    I'm migrating a website to WordPress on Hostbaby, the musician-specific web hosting arm of CDBaby. They provide a codebase of stuff that helps make a musician's website a little better.

    Problem is, in this codebase (which is not available for my editing), they have a function called get_settings() that conflicts with the one in WordPress.

    I think it would be nice, for this situation and maybe others like it, if the WordPress function could be named something that indicates its specificity, like wp_get_settings or whatever.

    Does that sound reasonable?

    I'm a recent arrival to the WordPress universe. I'm quite impressed with what's possible with it thus far!

    Seems get_settings is referred to in approximately 60 different WordPress scripts. Not sure the developers would want to change that but you could submit a Ticket at http://trac.wordpress.org ;)
