#19556 new enhancement

Make wp_term_checklist() available as a template tag

Currently, wp_term_checklist() is defined in wp-admin/includes/template.php, which means it's not available as a template tag for themes.

Note that wp_dropdown_categories() is defined in wp-includes/category-template.php. We should move wp_term_checklist() there too.

  • Walker_Category_Checklist also needs to be moved.
  • The current_user_can() check should be extracted out of there.

Not sure what to do with the 'popular_cats' arg.

Make wp_term_checklist() available as a template tag, add support for 'name' argument

#5 @sillybean
11 years ago

This patch:

  • moves wp_category_checklist(), wp_terms_checklist(), and Walker_Category_Checklist from wp-admin/includes/template.php to wp-includes/category-template.php
  • adds support for the 'name' argument to wp_terms_checklist() and Walker_Category_Checklist (for #16437)
  • removes the capability check / 'disabled' attribute

I'd appreciate a sanity check on that last point. I couldn't think of any scenarios where the checklist was displayed but disabled, and scribu was right about needing to remove that in order to make the function available as a template tag.

19556.2.diff is an updated patch that applies cleanly against trunk. It does the following:

  • Moves wp_category_checklist() and wp_terms_checklist() from wp-admin/includes/template.php to wp-includes/category-template.php
  • Doesn't move wp_popular_terms_checklist()
  • Moves wp-admin/includes/class-walker-category-checklist.php to wp-includes/class-walker-category-checklist.php
  • Adds support for the $name argument to wp_terms_checklist() / Walker_Category_Checklist (see #16437)

Note: If this gets committed, svn cp would need to be used to move the walker class file.
