 ..as a developer, I configure local *AMP to show each message related to
 my project, so to avoid any problem when publishing it at production site.

 Starting to work with WP I received many warnings (60) related to is_a()
 deprecation. I may solv it placing the statement "error_reporting( 0 );"
 in index.php at root folder but, if I do like that I also blind my
 visibility to other errors.

 Due to this back and forth deprecation of is_a() it may be more convenient
 to definitely solve it with its "instanceof" declaration. Is there any
 good reason to leave code with warnings instead of "perfect" other than
 the priority to more complex issues? Security, of course, has to be the
 first but, if you need more resources at this stage I may do the change
 the 60 occurrences of is_a(), check it and send it to you.

 Best wishes,

 Carmine Iaciofano
