  • Focuses docs added
  • Type changed from enhancement to defect (bug)

You're correct that these hooks are permutations of dynamic hooks, but they actually shouldn't be getting parsed in the first place – which is a bug – rather, they should be marked as duplicates of the dynamic hooks.

In this case, we just need to change the inline hook references to point to the right place.

Also removes extra curly braces from the dynamic hook references added in [40962] to aid future re-parsing.

See #41198.

  • Owner set to DrewAPicture
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

In 40964:

Docs: Don't reference non-existent hooks inline in the DocBlock descriptions for the following template functions:

  • get_index_template()
  • get_404_template()
  • get_author_template()
  • get_category_template()
  • get_tag_template()
  • get_taxonomy_template()
  • get_date_template()
  • get_home_template()
  • get_front_page_template()
  • get_page_template()
  • get_search_template()
  • get_single_template()
  • get_embed_template()
  • get_singular_template()
  • get_attachment_template()

As mentioned when these dynamic hook references were originally fixed in [33274], we can't link to non-existent hooks inline because the Code Reference auto-linker won't pick up on the dynamic-ness of the hook, it'll just try to link to a hook reference that doesn't exist. In these cases, we need to be generic and provide context for the value of $type.

See [38418] for where the original fix was reversed. See this changeset for reversing the reversal.

Props donutz, milana_cap.

Fixes #41198.
