#49872 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

PHP Notice: Undefined index: path in /wp-includes/functions.php on line 905

Reported by: jbouganim Owned by: SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: 5.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.4
Component: Pings/Trackbacks Keywords: has-patch needs-unit-tests
Focuses: Cc:


Some URLs here do not have a 'path' and thus throw this notice.
Instead of only checking on /wp-includes/functions.php L904:

if ( false !== $url_parts )

should also check

if ( false !== $url_parts && !empty($url_parts['path']) )

Hi, @jbouganim,

Welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

Added initial patch as suggested.

Can you provide an example of a URL that would not have a path component?

#3 @jbouganim

@Otto42 Sure.

$url_parts = parse_url("https://redirect.viglink.com?key=2fb2035e82f6fb61e704bd9&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.michaels.com%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dbandana");

Will not have a path index.

Great! So probably need some unit tests added to go with this as well.
