#44585 reopened defect (bug)

Docs: $wpdb->prepare should point to $wpdb->esc_like method

Reported by: felipeelia Owned by:

Component: Database Keywords: good-first-bug has-patch needs-testing
Focuses: docs Cc:


There is a broken link into $wpdb->prepare() docs: it points to https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/esc_like where it should point to https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/classes/wpdb/esc_like/.

I'm not sure, but I guess it's generated from inline docs, and should be solved simply changing {@see esc_like()} to {@see wpdb::esc_like()} in this line.

Hey @felipeelia, if you're talking about the link to wpdb::esc_like on this page - https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/classes/wpdb/prepare/ (http://prntscr.com/lmor6f), it works for me.

It redirects me to the correct link which you've mentioned in the ticket description. But seems like the inline docs isn't changed.

Probably, we need another confirmation or correct me if I'm talking for something else.

  • Focuses docs added
  • Keywords needs-patch good-first-bug added; 2nd-opinion removed
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release
  • Resolution worksforme deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

The @see tag should only be used for filters. To fix the linking {@see esc_like()} should get replaced with wpdb::esc_like().

Thank you for the clarification, @ocean90! Appreciate your help and I just applied a patch for this change.

  • Keywords needs-refresh added; needs-testing removed

@mbelchev Thanks for the patch! Can you remove the @see part too? It really only needs to be wpdb::esc_like(), the autolinking is handled automatically on developer.w.org.
