#46113 accepted defect (bug)

Incongruent returned value for wp_get_attachment_image_src

Reported by: wido Owned by: johnbillion
Milestone: 5.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.5
Component: Media Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: docs Cc:


As per docblock the function wp_get_attachment_image_src will return false|array Returns an array (url, width, height, is_intermediate), or false, if no image is available.

Function wp_get_attachment_image_src return an indexed array containing source, width and height, but not the intermediated value in case the internal call to image_downsize return false.

It's this latter that will return the array containing all of the elements, therefore if it's false wp_get_attachment_image_src will try to create them but will miss is_intermediated value.

Good catch, @wido. The docs should be updated here to note that the fourth value in the array, i.e. is_intermediate is optional.

@joemcgill What adding a default value for it instead? This will make the function more predictable.
False would be a good choice, it's the same default in image_downsize

@wido I think that would work too.

I noticed this too when cleaning up the docs for this function. When the fallback icon is used, false should be added as the fourth element in the returned array. The function docs also need updating to reflect this parameter, as the change I made in [47394] is technically not correct due to the inconsistent return value.
