WP_Query and is_day() bug

Reported by: raliste Owned by: ryan
Milestone: 3.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.8.4
Component: Canonical Keywords: has-patch needs-testing commit 3.7-early
Focuses: Cc:


When you configure Wordpress with permalinks such as /%year%/%month% and even /%year%/%month%/%day/ there is
a failure when you request URLs like /2009/10/58, because it's still generating the query to the database
(AND YEAR(wp_posts.post_date)='2009' AND MONTH(wp_posts.post_date)='10' AND DAYOFMONTH(wp_posts.post_date)='58').
Also, is_day() returns true, when it should be returning false.

As adding a post with that date is nearly impossible trough the wordpress admin or the database, no posts will be found, so
Wordpress will show "No page found", but with HTTP status 200 OK, not 404 Not Found.

I think it's important to validate the day on the applicacion side, so for some ideas to work correctly under WP
(like take advantage of sticky posts and show all post for the month in day requests), and most importantly to save
those wasted mysql queries.

Of course I could validate the day using a filter, but that is not the general idea!

Ok, I noticed that HTTP status is working, but still is_day() returns true.

is_day() == true means that the current query has a day specified so should return true in this case.

I'm not sure I see a bug here.

#4 @raliste

You are right, but the actual bug is in doing the query to the database. I thought that if you validate the day before, you could save those wasted queries. Also, months never have more than 31 days, to querying for day 58 should obviously return false, because it's not a day!

But is_day() doesn't return true. WP_Query::set_404() makes sure it doesn't.

  • Component changed from Query to Canonical
  • Keywords has-patch added; needs-patch removed

If you pass an invalid date to WP_Query, it will fire a query that will fail and then 404. My patch 404s before the query is made and does canonical redirection on bad date URLs.

If it's a day url, and the day doesn't jive with the month: it will redirect to the month. If it's a month url, and the monthnum is 15 or something: it will redirect to the year.

Adds 2 functions: wp_is_valid_day() and wp_is_valid_month()

#8 @wonderboymusic

Looky there, PHP has a function called checkdate() which validates day / month / year and takes leap years into account. Boom: http://php.net/manual/en/function.checkdate.php

Patch updated.

  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 3.6

Patch refreshed against trunk, ditches the new functions, just uses checkdate() - passes all Unit Tests

#10 @nacin

As of 3.5 we have a wp_checkdate() with a filter, I think mostly to support other calendars. This looks great at a glance, otherwise.

10935.diff looks sane. 10935.tests.diff adds some unit tests.

  • Keywords needs-testing added

10935.2.diff fixes a small typo in the previous patch.

#14 @SergeyBiryukov

We should probably use wp_checkdate() (introduced in [21922] for #17180), as noted in comment:10.

#15 @DrewAPicture

10935.3.diff uses wp_checkdate(). A concatenated date of the format YYYY-MM-DD is passed in as $source_date.
