#47174 accepted defect (bug)

This is a follow-up to #33383.

This bug has returned. I'm not sure which version re-introduced this, but the original fix for #33383 (get_permalink) is missing in the current comments-template.php

The WordPress v5.2 code starting at line 1695 of comments-template.php should be:

                $link = sprintf(
                        "<a rel='nofollow' class='comment-reply-link' href='%s' %s aria-label='%s'>%s</a>",
                                                'replytocom'      => $comment->comment_ID,
                                                'unapproved'      => false,
                                                'moderation-hash' => false,
                        ) . '#' . $args['respond_id'],
                        esc_attr( sprintf( $args['reply_to_text'], $comment->comment_author ) ),

After adding the get_permalink line it works as expected.

Hi @johnh10
Just created a patch for this. I'll track the previous versions changesets to find out where the last one has been removed.

  • Keywords has-patch added; needs-patch removed
  • Version changed from 5.2 to 5.1

Looks like that get_permalink() arg was removed in [42360], so I think this came back in 5.1.
