#44490 new enhancement

get_the_date() should be calling get_post_time()

Reported by: Rarst Owned by:
Milestone: 5.0 Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 3.0
Component: Date/Time Keywords: has-patch has-unit-tests
Focuses: Cc:


Date/Time template tags follow a certain hierarchy with one exception:

  • the_time() > get_the_time() > get_post_time() > mysql2date()
  • the_modified_time() > get_the_modified_time() > get_post_modified_time() > mysql2date()
  • the_date() > get_the_date() > mysql2date()
  • the_modified_date() > get_the_modified_date() > get_post_modified_time() > mysql2date()

There is get_the_date() > get_post_time() level missing. Which means that low level get_post_time filter in it will only affect time branch, but not date branch. This is inconsistent and potentially unexpected.

Will work on a patch to adjust get_the_date() implementation.
