Urls are encoded incorrectly in WP_Posts_List_Table::get_views()

I stumbled upon this bug when I tried to fix something else: The current css class is not added to the 'All' link in the views. To solve this issue, I added the css class with DOMDocument. But when I called the method to read the html of


like so:


, I received a parsing error. The parsing error is thrown because the ampersand in WP_Posts_List_Table::get_views() on line 185 is not encoded.
I will refrain from using my DOMDocument method of fixing the other bug, I will file another bug instead, because I now know why the 'current' css class is not added to the 'All' view.

In 34084:

WP_Posts_List_Table: there are a cadre of edit.php URLs that are generated by string-building instead of using our handy functions. Create a helper method, ->get_edit_link() that standardizes the generation and escaping of these URLs.

Props BdN3504 for the initial patch on the ticket.
Fixes #32376.

Documentation for this new method is incomplete:

  • Need docs for all three parameters, including marking the third one optional
  • The summary needs a period and should not contain markdown backticks
  • Needs an @access tag
