#24605 new enhancement

Pass widget ID as a third parameter to widget_text filter

I would like to identify the current widget when using widget_text filter. If the widget ID will be returned by the filter, it would be very useful. A solution can be adding a third parameter in the wp-includes/default-widget.php near the line 401:


$text = apply_filters( 'widget_text', empty( $instance['text'] ) ? '' :
        $instance['text'], $instance );


$text = apply_filters( 'widget_text', empty( $instance['text'] ) ? '' : 
        $instance['text'], $instance, $this->id );

Change History (6)

Maybe it would be a better solution if the widget_text meta data in Options table will contain the widget ID. In this latter case there will be a possibility to find all the necessary widgets before (outside of) the loop.

I would like to recant my Comment 4 because finally I have found the solution for getting widget IDs before the loop. In addition I would like to opiniate my original ticket.
