Add comment url filter to comment list table

In class-wp-comments-list-table.php on line 684 we get the author url like so:

$author_url = get_comment_author_url( $comment );

Even though slightly further down there is a filter for the comment author email address, there isn't a filter for the comment author url. Directly below the code listed above, there should be another filter (for completeness if not for anything else).

I'd suggest something like this:

$author_url = apply_filters( 'comment_website', $author_url, $comment );

This would then allow the author url to be altered with the added bonus of the comment object for extra flexibility, much like the email address.

Thanks for the patch @ashokrd2013

In the Core Contributor Handbook there's a good description how to document filters:


but I noticed that the function get_comment_author_url() contains the following filter:

  * Filters the comment author's URL.
  * @since 1.5.0
  * @since 4.1.0 The `$comment_ID` and `$comment` parameters were added.
  * @param string     $url        The comment author's URL.
  * @param int        $comment_ID The comment ID.
  * @param WP_Comment $comment    The comment object.
  return apply_filters( 'get_comment_author_url', $url, $id, $comment );

As per comment:4, there's already the get_comment_author_url filter that can be used.
