Description (last modified by desrosj)

There are several older deprecated functions that do not have a _deprecate_function() call inside them.

  • Admin deprecated: 10
  • Admin MS deprecated: 1
  • Normal deprecated: 1

Without this function, site owners are never informed that a deprecated function is being called on their site, and of the intended replacement if one exists. A _deprecated_function() call should be added to these for consistency.

This sounds like a duplicate of #41121, which created a huge discussion on "soft" deprecations versus "hard" deprecations, which is why that ticket is still open.

I think that discussion needs to be resolved first ?

The Ticket 41121 is not updated from 2 years, can we take the _deprecated_function() as the truth ?

  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

Duplicate of #41121.

Going to close this out as a duplicate to keep all conversation in one place.
