Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

The class WP_Widget in wp-includes/widget.php makes use of PHP4-style constructor for compatibility with plugins (mostly).

I propose two changes here:

  • A direct call to the old constructor should trigger a deprecation notice
  • The PHP4-style constructor *must* be declared after __construct() otherwise, an E_STRICT regarding constructor re-declaration is thrown.

Please find a patch attached...
