[wp-hackers] Deprecated functions in the codex
shacker at birdhouse.org

The user experience of landing on a Codex page for a deprecated
function is lousy.
"This function has been deprecated. That means it has been replaced by
a new function or is no longer supported, and may be removed from
future versions. All code that uses this function should be converted
to use its replacement if one exists."
OK, so what function should you use instead? No hint whatsoever on
that page. So you turn to the "Related" section at the bottom of the
page hoping to find a similar function that's not deprecated. But nope
- each of these:
get_links_list, wp_get_links, get_links, wp_get_linksbyname,
has the same "I'm stuck in a hole with nowhere to turn" message as
above, no hint as to what to use instead. I think the Codex can do
better. I'd be happy to do some editing in the Codex to fix this, IF I
had a reliable list of all deprecated functions and their
replacements. Is there one?
