#19795 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Documentation or code bug in register_taxonomy_for_object_type function (wp-includes/taxonomy.php)

Reported by: transom's profile transom Owned by: ryan's profile ryan
Milestone: 3.4 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.3.1
Component: Taxonomy Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


The documentation indicates that the post_type can be an array or a string.

However, the code passes the post_type to get_post_type_object without change and that function expects a string (ouch)

So the choices are: change the documentation or loop over an array.

If we loop, what does returning the bool true/false mean? We added all the post_types or just some of the post_types

Happy to provide a diff with feedback on direction
