Update get_template_part() function

I think it would be good to add the ability to programmatically override the output of posts in the loop without interfering with the theme files ( for example, archive.php and others ). This will allow you to change the display of posts through plugins.

For example. To adapt the theme to work with Woocommerce, you need to edit the theme code. For users, this is sometimes very difficult.
My code:

function get_template_part( $slug, $name = null ) {
         * Fires before the specified template part file is loaded.
         * The dynamic portion of the hook name, `$slug`, refers to the slug name
         * for the generic template part.
         * @since 3.0.0
         * @param string      $slug The slug name for the generic template.
         * @param string|null $name The name of the specialized template.
        do_action( "get_template_part_{$slug}", $slug, $name );
        $templates = array();
        $name      = (string) $name;
        if ( '' !== $name ) {
                $templates[] = "{$slug}-{$name}.php";
        $templates[] = "{$slug}.php";
         * Fires before a template part is loaded.
         * @since 5.2.0
         * @param string   $slug      The slug name for the generic template.
         * @param string   $name      The name of the specialized template.
         * @param string[] $templates Array of template files to search for, in order.
        do_action( 'get_template_part', $slug, $name, $templates );
        $templates = add_filter( 'get_template_part', $templates );

        locate_template( $templates, true, false );

@johnbillion while this is a duplicate, it's also been 10+ years since that original one was opened with still nothing happening :(

  • Keywords needs-refresh dev-feedback added
  • Resolution duplicate deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

Reopening this one in hopes of getting some kind of movement as #13239 has clearly died (it's 10+ years old with no movement).

This ticket is also specifically around get_template_part whereas #13239 is surrounding locate_template but it seems nothing is going to happen on that end, so maybe we can at least get the ability to filter on template parts so developers don't have to manage the entire template as per my comment here
