Deprecated: contextual_help ist seit Version 3.3.0 veraltet! Benutze stattdessen get_current_screen()->add_help_tab(), get_current_screen()->remove_help_tab(). in /var/www/html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 5088

how can i fix it?

Thanks for your help!

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

The deprecated hook message is only displayed if you have any functions in your plugins or theme specifically hooked to the deprecated contextual_help_list filter. As noted in the message, those instances should be updated to use get_current_screen()->add_help_tab() or get_current_screen()->remove_help_tab() instead.

Looks like we're already tracking this issue in #49593.

Does the issue still happen with all plugins disabled and a default theme (Twenty Twenty) activated?
