#18187 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Inconsistent behaviour for register_sidebar and is_active_sidebar

Part of the sidebar-related functions use sanitize_title() for the sidebar id, while others don't. For example, if I try to register a sidebar with an id like "Not The Very Best Sidebar ID" everything is fine and register_sidebar stores it under $wp_registered_sidebars['Not The Very Best Sidebar ID']. But when I use is_active_sidebar with the same id, it first passes the id through sanitize_title() and looks for the sidebar data in $wp_registered_sidebars['not-the-very-best-sidebar-id']

My patch adds sanitize_title() to the following functions: register_sidebar, unregister_sidebar and wp_sidebar_description.
