Platform theme breaks under WordPress v3.4: get_theme_data is deprecated (5 posts)

    Hi guys,

    Just upgraded my WordPress site to 3.4 and got this PHP notice while using your Platform Theme:

    Notice: get_theme_data is deprecated since version 3.4! Use wp_get_theme() instead

    Any ideas?

    Lines 6 and 9 of Platform/includes/core.globals are to blame. Unfortunately I'm not sure whether updating the code to use wp_get_theme would break anything. Hopefully the theme developers will fix this.

    That theme was updated on 12-20-12 -- are you, djeyewater, still getting that error and are you using the most current version?

    If so, have you contacted the developers?

    Yes, I always keep my themes and plugins updated when wordpress notifies me there is an update. According to the themes panel info I am on 1.4.3, which is the same as the latest version in the themes directory.

    I thought that this support forum was for contacting the developers?

    I checked the developers website just now, but that seems to be about support for their paid themes.

    Some developers do frequent these forums to support their themes, but if they have their own site, they may provide faster/better support there. You can look at other threads for Platform here:
