#48358 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

wp_get_post_parent_id() does not default to global $post

Reported by: danielpost's profile danielpost Owned by: sergeybiryukov's profile SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: 5.9 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.1
Component: Posts, Post Types Keywords: has-patch has-unit-tests commit has-dev-note
Focuses: Cc:


Because wp_get_post_parent_id() does not declare a default value for the $post parameter, calling it without explicitly passing the $post parameter results in an error. This means that it will never default to the global $post. I believe the fix here is to declare $post = null in the function declaration and specify in the PHPDoc that this parameter is optional, similar to how other functions handle this.

This doesn't need a full dev-note, but it should get a small call-out in the miscellaneous changes note in 5.4.

The test in 48358.1.diff might need the annotation @ticket 48358. I also wonder if the function's doc would need the @since annotation after the signature change.

I'm happy to make those changes if the consensus is that they're necessary—I don't have enough experience with core contributing to make that call myself.

The failing test looks like an unrelated issue.

@audrasjb It's a remote request to that has timed out. There's a ticket open to mock each of these HTTP remote requests Adding this test to that ticket's list.

But you're right. This failing test is not associated with this PR.

In 48358.3.diff:

I pushed the latter two items to @audrasjb's branch, presuming the tests pass I will commit momentarily.
