#18692 new enhancement

wp_insert_post() enhancements

I have created enhancement for wp_insert_post() function. There re two changes:

  • allows to return WP_Error from wp_insert_post_data - in this case function returns that value (or 0 if param $wp_error == false) and do not continue;
  • filter categories, tags and other taxonomies through new filters: wp_insert_post_category, wp_insert_post_tags and wp_insert_post_tax. New code also checks if these filters returned WP_Error;

These changes will allow me to implement following features in my WyPiekacz plugin:

  • do not create new post when it does not satisfy appropriate rules. Although WP code will not display that error by itself (#10480, #18266), I will be able to display appropriate error from plugin code (at least when normal editor was used). This will also help me to stop flood of automated post spam;
  • allow to review tags attached to post submitted for review - this way tags will be actually created when post will be published; before this they will be stored as post metadata. In order to do this I need to modify tags - unfortunately wp_insert_post_data filter does not allow to modify them (it allows read-only access to them only).

It will be good to provide integration with XML-RPC too - recently it was enabled globally, so I expect more automated publishing tools will start using it in near future.

Yes, I am still interested in fixing this. Now the only way to add functionality mentioned at the beginning is to directly modify POST data before WP puts his hands on it, and messing up executed SQL query. Both solutions are hacks, and 2nd one is especially ugly.
