#7273 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Utilize do_action_deprecated() and apply_filters_deprecated() for old filters.

This will require WordPress being minimum version 4.6.x before we can implement.

As the BuddyPress codebase has evolved over the years, we have replaced actions and filters with better or more appropriate hooks. In order to prevent breaking backwards compatibility, we have left the old hooks in place as well.

We should invest time, once possible, to replace the old hook calls with the new do_action_deprecated() and apply_filters_deprecated() functions to let developers know more directly that they should update their code to match current BuddyPress.

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
