  • Hello,

    it would be great if you could fix the notices about get_screen_icon() and screen_icon() in the next update. These functions are deprecated since WP 3.8.0…

  • Confirmed:
    Notice (1024): screen_icon is <strong>deprecated</strong> since version 3.8.0 with no alternative available. in [/home/domain/wp-includes/functions.php, line 3841]

    I removed that line.


    We will fix this in the next version. 🙂

    Let us know if you have any other questions,


    This wasn’t fixed yet…

    Still not fixed.

    even today, still not fixed,
    @plugin author: just please remove line 8 in settings.php, and release a update, this should take 5 minutes, please.


    Guys, please turn off WP_DEBUG from wp-config.php to remove the warning labels on admin side.

    If you still want to remove that, then open the file settings.php from wp-content/plusings/simple-custom-post-order using any of your FTP browser and remove the line,

    <?php screen_icon('plugins'); ?>

    This will fix the issue.



    1) as a good developer, we never turn of wp_debug, otherwise we would deploy errors & warnings to a production environment, so that is not the solution.
    2) you suggest us to “hack” a plugin, and probably have to do it again if there will be (ever?) an update? As a WordPress developer, there is a rule that says: never edit or customize plugin code.
    3) the error would be fixed in 5 minutes, please do it and release an update, if you still care about this plugin
    4) 7 month ago you talked about a next release?, meanwhile we almost at WordPress 5, the error is from 3.8

    Anyway, i stepped away from this plugin, there are alternatives


    1. That is good, but on a production level don’t turn on WP_DEBUG, only turn it on when you’re developing.

    2. It is not a hack, that is the fix.

    3. We already update that from our github repo, you can get it from there if you want,

    4. It is just a warning, and sorry for the late on release.

    Let us know if you have any other questions,
