Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Currently, when you're designing a theme or plugin, any malformed functions or the malformed hooks that activate them can throw this error:

Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function '' not found or invalid function name in /home/user_name/ on line 292

Core is not the cause of the error. My in-development plugin is.

It would be more helpful if this error were caught in such a way that theme and plugin designers could be told in the debug.log exactly which line in theme's or plugin's function.php is causing the error.

Closing as duplicate of #51894 which was marked "wont-fix".

Invalid function names being passed to hooks is a developer error.

There are tools, like Xdebug, and plugins, like Debug bar actions and filters, available to help you trace back the source of the error.

Slowing down one of the most used functions in Core to make allowances for something which is an undisputed developer error and should never make it into production, is not the way to go.
