#48358 reviewing defect (bug)

wp_get_post_parent_id() does not default to global $post

Reported by: danielpost Owned by: SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.1
Component: Posts, Post Types Keywords: has-patch has-unit-tests needs-dev-note

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.
