#24722 reopened defect (bug)

get_post_statuses() and get_page_statuses() are hardcoded

Despite the support for registering custom post/page statuses in core, both get_post_statuses() and get_page_statuses() are hardcoded.

Both of these functions are only used in the XML-RPC API in core, however this may affect plugins.

(Somewhat related to the editorial-flow component, although that's on hiatus at the moment.)

Would it make sense to turn these into wrappers for get_post_stati()?

#2 @nerrad

See patch above. I didn't do the same thing for get_page_statuses() because it looked like from the code that page statuses are supposed to be a different list from post_statuses and currently there is no way to filter the post status by post_type because post type is NOT considered in registering post status.

Replying to sillybean:

Would it make sense to turn these into wrappers for get_post_stati()?

No, because get_post_stati() return a filtered list of objects. right now get_post_statuses() returns an array indexed in status->name/status->label pairs and any client code using the function would expect the same. I still use the $wp_post_statuses global however, and created a helper function to spit out an array setup in the format using get_post_statuses() currently expects.

24722.diff returns a map of non-internal statuses, but I'm not sure how useful this is. Without being able to associate object types to statuses, this is a very incomplete API.

  • Milestone Future Release deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

This ticket has not seen any activity in over *two* years, so I'm closing it as "wontfix".

The ticket may lack decisiveness, may have become irrelevant, or may not have gathered enough interest.

If you think this ticket does deserve some attention again, feel free to reopen.

For bugs, it would be great if you could provide updated steps to reproduce against the latest version of WordPress (5.0.2 at the time of writing). Remember images or a video can be superior to explain a problem. At the very least, quickly test again to make sure the bug still exists.

If it’s an enhancement or feature, some extra motivation may help.

Thank you for your contributions to WordPress! <3
