get_sample_permalink() passes the wrong post_status to wp_unique_post_slug()
|Reported by:||mintindeed||Owned by:||boonebgorges|
get_sample_permalink() fakes a 'publish' post_status so that it can create a pseudo-permalink for drafts and scheduled posts. Also wp_unique_post_slug() bails when the post_status is 'draft', 'pending', or 'auto-draft', so faking a 'publish' post_status helps there too.
However, that means the incorrect post_status is passed to the 'wp_unique_post_slug' filter at times, creating unexpected behaviour -- namely sometimes the $post_status parameter of the wp_unique_post_slug filter will report a non-published post is published.
The best approach here seems to be to let the wp_unique_post_slug() function know when a fake $post_status is being passed to it, what that status is so it can be passed to the wp_unique_post_slug filter. That way anybody using the filter will always get the actual post status all the time without having to do anything special.
