#34591 new defect (bug)

BugFix to WP_Scripts::do_item(), remove doubled "//"

Description (last modified by johnbillion)

Current code in do_item() of class.wp-script.php on line 172:

$src = $this->base_url . $src;

may produce duplicate slashes "//", resulting in problems.

This might be fixed with code:

$src = $this->base_url . $src;


  • WP_Scripts contains: "public $base_url; // Full URL with trailing slash" and
  • script-loader.php contains calls $scripts->add() with initial "/" in relative paths

Together this produces doubled slashes "//". For example:

This makes W3TC include script in minified version, but not to remove it from the original HTML.

Including jQuery twice makes LayerSlider not to work.

Please, could you bugfix class.wp-script.php on line 172?

Thank you :-)

To be able to update Wordpress, untill this fix is included, it should be more secure to solve this with filter:

function abeo_script_loader_src($src, $handle) {
	$path = parse_url($src, PHP_URL_PATH);
	if(!empty($path)) {
		$replaced = 0;
		$pathReplaced = str_replace('//', '/', $path, $replaced);
		if($replaced) {
			$src = str_replace($path, $pathReplaced, $src);
	return $src;

add_filter('script_loader_src', 'abeo_script_loader_src', 10, 2);

Thanks for the report, @jan.mazanek.

  • Can you explain a little more about why you think this double slash is appearing?
  • What's the value of the home option in the wp_options table in your database?
  • Does the bug remain if you disable all the plugins on your site and switch to one of the default themes?
  • Is there anything unusual about the configuration of your site?

John, thank for reply.

My configuration is highly unusual to get high speed, shared data and use multiple host names without domain preffixes or suffixes. I developed a Child Theme based on Avada, I use plugins W3 Total Cache and A3 Lazy Load and some other.

The key info for this ticket might be, that I do override options siteurl, home, page_on_front, blogname, blogdescription with filters:

If I remember correct, I did remove trailing slash from siteurl and home options afer writting this ticket.

But to simplify things. wp-includes/class.wp-scripts.php contains:
1) line 20:

public $base_url; // Full URL with trailing slash

2) line 172:

$src = $this->base_url . $src;

So together: if I do respect comment and $this->base_url contains trailing slash
and if $src starts with slash (as is now used in script-loader.php)
then together this will produce two slashes.

Possible solutions - alternatives:
1) Change documentation, that $this->base_url should not contain trailing slash
2) Remove initial slash from script-loader.php calls to $scripts->add()
3) My original suggestion (or any other code) which will prevent doubled slashes

Currently I solved the problem for myself and I am not going to test, if "Does the bug remain if you disable all the plugins on your site and switch to one of the default themes?", but I am almost sure, that the problem would disappear (which doesn't mean, that the code is safe and should not be changed).

johnbillion, your update of description is not incorrect

$src = $this->base_url . $src;

Doesn't fix the problem.

To fix the problem, there must be some code which ensures, there is exactly one slash on the border of $this->base_url and $src. Such code is for example:

$src = rtrim($this->base_url, '/'). '/' . ltrim($src, '/');
