#21249 new defect (bug)

WP_List_Table::single_row_columns() needs to do an exact comparison

If for whatever reason you pass a column ID of 0 when dealing with a list table, WordPress thinks it's a checkbox column because of the loose comparison, i.e. == instead of ===.

Since I don't see why passing a number instead of a string shouldn'r be allowed, attached is a patch.

Are you saying 'cb' == 0 evals to true?

D'oh. Yes, it does. Seems PHP's type coercion is at least as treacherous as the one in JavaScript.

I can reproduce the original bug. The patch looks good.

  • Milestone changed from 3.4.3 to 3.5

Would if ( 'cb' == $column_key ) in print_column_headers() also be affected?

comment:5 Viper007Bond18 months ago

Seems like it would be affected, yes.

I can't test though because I don't remember exactly what I was working on at the time other than maybe I was creating columns programically using a numeric array.

I'm going to go with a column ID of "0" being invalid and punt this until we are able to fix it everywhere.
