Description (last modified by dd32)

Currently get_file_data() fails when a file contains a header in the format <?php // Template Name: Something ?>.

WP_Theme currently doesn't use get_file_data() (but should IMHO: #33388) so isn't affected by this, but this feels like a common-enough case amongst themes that we should consider supporting, even if only to have a single method of extracting header data.

One method could be to use this as the regular expression, which allows for a PHP opening tag to start off the line (allowing for spaces/tabs before hand)

'/^(?:[ \t]*<\?php)?[ \t\/*#@]*' . preg_quote( $header, '/' ) . ':(.*)$/mi'

Today is 5.8 Beta 1. Ran out of time for this one to land. Punting to 5.9.

Adding needs-unit-tests for review if there's test coverage.

In 51182:

Themes: Make sure get_file_data() recognizes headers prefixed by <?php tag.

This allows for using headers in the format of <?php // Template Name: Something ?>, which previously could not be recognized correctly.

Fixes #33387.
