#39675 closed enhancement (fixed)

Remove unnecessary admin notification about deprecated `WPLANG`

In wp-admin/options-general.php a notification is shown to admins if the deprecated WPLANG constant is defined. @ocean90 brought up the possibility of removing this check while discussing #39207.

In my opinion the admin notice can be removed, since a regular _deprecated_argument() notice is already thrown for developers. While we generally expect the admin to do some tweaks to wp-config.php in a few areas, I think this notice is something that could easily confuse non-technical users.

In 44946:

I18N: Remove admin notice when the WPLANG constant is no longer necessary.

Introduced in [29630], this admin notice informs administrators (or network administrators on multisite installs) that the WPLANG constant is no longer needed when the locale returned by get_locale() does not match. After 5 years, the notice is being removed to avoid causing confusion for non-technical users.

The _deprecated_argument() call will persist to inform developers of the issue within log files.

Props flixos90, iworks, ocean90.
Fixes #39675.
