PHP get_magic_quotes_gpc deprecated

Magic quotes is an old and outdated concept in PHP. It was already deprecated in PHP 5.3 and removed in PHP 5.4. The get_magic_quotes_gpc() function returns the current configuration settings of magic quotes. However, this function has not yet been removed, but has been deprecated in PHP 7.4.

As a lot of old legacy code, like older versions of Wordpress uses get_magic_quotes_gpc and meanwhile PHP is being updated in more and more places, this warning is becoming more common.

Fortunately, fixing it is pretty straightforward, as starting with PHP 5.4, the return value is always 0. You need to remove all of them from your code. No replacement code is needed.
