Hi There,

as the title says, is it possible to improve most of the wordpress path function in windows.


$s = get_stylesheet_directory();


its not a big deal as most of wordpress developers,creates another function to output it properly, but I am thinking wordpress should fixed it from its core.

Sounds like a duplicate of #20849.

F:\xampp\htdocs\wp\wp-content/themes/cmk is a valid path on Windows, there's nothing wrong with it.

Thanks for the response,

Sorry for putting this on the wrong section. Never read anything before posting

Well, I never mentioned its invalid, indeed backslash isn't actually a problem until using it on validation statement like this then problem will occur.

if(strpos(MyPath(__FILE__), get_stylesheet_directory()) !== false){
	//Fly to the Sky

the problem is that, it will always return false, because of backlash

$f = MyPath(__FILE__);
$s = get_stylesheet_directory();


Yes, I can just simply do something like this MyPath(get_stylesheet_directory())

and viola, it works.

But my question is.

Why can't wordpress fix backslashes on its return value in all the path functions, I don't think its hard to fix.

or is there actually a reason why it should have backslashes?
