#1173 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Suggestion: xml template functions

Description

it would be nice if, rather than inconsistently calling functions such as:

<?php wp_whatever( $before, $after ); ?>
-> returns:
html as appropriate

it might be worth exploring xml output for future versions of wordpress:

<?php xml_whatever(); ?>
-> returns:
<whatever>filters applied</whatever>

so as to xslt transform the result. i think it would be a lot more subtle than anything the template tags currently allow.

Do we really want to have to rewrite the template functions for a release so close as 2.3? 3.0 might be better, but this might just end up to be a plugin's extension.

Replying to rob1n:

2.3 basically means not being considered for this release. I like to have every bug verses a milestone. I don't have the knowledge to know if this is something that should be implemented in core.

Makes sense. IMO XML template functions are either plugin material or for a really, really far off rewrite such as 3.0 or even 4.0.

I say we close this as wontfix... it would be simple to do a plugin providing xml_* functions for XPath manipulation.

#7 @rob1n

XSLT rather.

#8 @rob1n

  • Keywords dev-feedback removed
  • Milestone 2.3 deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

After thinking about it, it's a pretty good idea, but it's better off as a plugin for now.
