  • Modules that use theme('error', ...) to print error messages should be updated to use drupal_set_message(..., 'error') unless used to print an error message below a form item.
    <?php
    drupal_set_message
    (t('failed to update X', 'error'));  // set the second parameter to 'error'
    ?>
  • Modules that print status messages directly to the screen using status() should be updated to use drupal_set_message(). The status() function has been removed.
    <?php
    drupal_set_message
    (t('updated X'));
    ?>
