#36271 new enhancement

Trigger _doing_it_wrong if wp_send_json is used on a REST API request

Reported by: rmccue Owned by:
Milestone: 5.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.4
Component: REST API Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


We should heavily discourage users from using wp_send_json (& co.) on REST API requests. Two changes I want to make:

  1. If _doing_it_wrong is triggered on a REST request, we should add a header ala the _deprecated_function headers.
  2. If wp_send_json is called on a REST request, we should trigger a _doing_it_wrong and point people towards WP_REST_Response and WP_Error
