Description

@mitweka reported on DevHub User notes that function addslashes_gpc has a dead link to https://www.php.net/magic_quotes in the function description.

Given magic_quotes is not used anymore in WP Core and after having a look to ticket:40716#comment:1, I guess we can probably remove entirely this obsolete function description. Thoughts?

Replying to audrasjb:

Yes, I agree:

  • Usage of get_magic_quotes_gpc() was removed from addslashes_gpc() in [46105] / #47783.
  • A similar description fragment was removed from wp_parse_str() in that changeset, but this one was missed.
  • The get_magic_quotes_gpc() function itself was deprecated in PHP 7.4 and removed in PHP 8.0.
