#37519 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Excerpts not retrieved outside loop when raw excerpt is empty

#27246 / r36319 introduced the ability to fetch the excerpt for a post when outside the Loop, but it only works if the post has an excerpt manually assigned.

If the raw post_excerpt is empty, then a notice is thrown and an empty string is returned.

Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in src/wp-includes/post-template.php on line 298

I expected it to automatically generate the an excerpt from the post_content, like it would inside the Loop.

The unit test from r36320 only tests the case where an excerpt is manually assigned.

This snippet in an mu-plugin will reproduce it:

add_action( 'init', function() {
	var_dump( get_the_excerpt( get_post( 1 ) ) );
} );

37519.diff fixes the bug for me, but the new unit test still fails. I'm guessing the post factory isn't setup to automatically generate excerpts the way the actual code does, but don't have time to dig into that right now.

Thanks for the patch, @iandunn!

Since we already made some progress on that problem in #36934, would you mind sharing this there? There's a whole lot to cover with such a change so I suggest reading through the previous comments & patches.

Doh, my bad, I didn't find that when I searched for tickets mentioning #27246 or r36319.

I tested 36934a.diff and 36934b.diff, and they both solve the specific issue raised here. It doesn't look like my patch would add anything to what's already been done there.
