#26819 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

wp_make_link_relative() returns domain name instead of zero length string path when no path present

Reported by: adiant's profile adiant Owned by: chriscct7's profile chriscct7
Milestone: 4.4 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.8
Component: Formatting Keywords: has-patch commit

wp_make_link_relative() simply returns the URL passed to it when the URL has no path, just a domain name. Instead, it should return a zero length string.

A URL with a path of '/' correctly returns '/'.

Incorrect: var_dump( wp_make_link_relative( '' ) ) displays "string(24) ""

Correct: var_dump( wp_make_link_relative( '' ) ) displays string(1) "/"

Workaround: for my purposes, parse_url( $home_url, PHP_URL_PATH ) does all that I need, but wp_make_link_relative() would still be useful when a Query or Fragment is present in the URL.

Making the slash in the match expression optional does the trick.

Huh, I never heard of wp_make_link_relative(). Looks like it hasn't been used anywhere in core since WordPress 2.5.

I am fine with fixing this but we will need some unit tests, I think.
