#47574 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Public custom post status cannot be embedded

Reported by: goaroundagain's profile goaroundagain Owned by: sergeybiryukov's profile SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: 5.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 5.2.2
Component: Embeds Keywords: has-unit-tests has-patch has-dev-note

Currently it is not possible to embend any post with a custom post status, even when the custom post status is set to

'public' => true

From register_post_status:
public: (bool) (optional) Whether posts of this status should be shown in the front end of the site.

For this reason, all post with a custom post status set to public should be embeddable.

The reason why thats not possible is in get_oembed_response_data:

if ( 'publish' !== get_post_status( $post ) ) {
    return false;

It just checks if the post status is "publish" and not if "public" on the post status object is set to "true".

To support custom public post status, this could be a solution:

if ( true !== get_post_status_object( get_post_status( $post ) )->public ) {
    return false;

Another possibility would be to provide a custom filter:

if ( true !== in_array( get_post_status( $post ), apply_filters( 'oembed_post_status', array( 'publish' ) ) ) {
    return false;

I have tested 47574.3.diff and confirmed that posts with a custom post status can be embedded.
-I don't know enough to review the test.

In the linked pull request, I've modified the patch to use the new `is_post_publicly_viewable()` function which allows for public custom statuses and post types rather than repeat the code.

I've replaced the existing check the post exists, as is_post_publicly_viewable() doesn't consider non-existent post as public. That would be silly :D

Embeds: Allow posts with a public custom post status to be embedded.

Previously, only posts with the publish status could be embedded.

Props goaroundagain, peterwilsoncc, poena.
Fixes #47574.
