Support » Plugin: Custom Meta Widget » Updated constructor

  • Resolved dsmiller


    As I’ve tried to say on your website (but have had lots of trouble with the “comment editor”), here’s a revised constructor–replacing the deprecated one:

    function __construct()
    	// set widget options
    	$widget_ops = array (
    		'classname' => 'customMetaWidget',
    		'description' => __( 'Hide the individual log in/out, admin, feed and WordPress links', 'customMetaWidget' )
    		'customMetaWidget', // Base ID
    		 __('Custom Meta', 'customMetaWidget'), // Name
    		$widget_ops // Args

    Thanks. (And sorry for all of the postings–feel free to (in fact, please) delete the ones I posted on your site.)

  • Scott,
    Is your post related to these entries that keep showing up in my debug.log?

    The called constructor method for WP_Widget is deprecated since version 4.3.0! Use


    instead. in /home/ptapal5/public_html/ptactest/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3624

    Is someone working on a new update to the plugin to include this fix?

    Thanks, BC

    Yes. And I posted the code above to avoid the deprecated technique. It doesn’t look like the plugin author is still active, so it may be a while for the fix to be committed to the code repository–if ever.

    Thanks! Your code worked.
    Sorry for the sloppy cut and paste in my earlier message.

    Your fixed pushed in 1.4.8 w/ credit. Thanks!
