Thanks for the PR! The first part of it is now committed.

Some history on the second part:

  • The description of the taxonomy argument in wp_list_categories() was intentionally removed in [45894], see comment:12:ticket:47896 and comment:8:ticket:41058 for the reasoning. The DocBlock includes a reference to get_categories(), get_terms(), and WP_Term_Query::__construct() for information on additional accepted arguments.
  • That said, the same was done for wp_dropdown_categories(). The taxonomy parameter was removed in [40903] and then reinstated in [41767], since it's different from the default in WP_Term_Query::__construct().
  • With the above in mind, it should probably be reinstated for wp_list_categories() too.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from reviewing to closed

In 49060:

Taxonomy: Restore documentation for the taxonomy parameter of wp_list_categories().

The parameter's default value is different from the one in WP_Term_Query::__construct(), and should be documented accordingly.

This also clarifies that the taxonomy parameter of wp_list_categories() only accepts a string, not an array.

Follow-up to [40903], [41767], [45894], [45895].

Props grapplerulrich, mukesh27, TimothyBlynJacobs, SergeyBiryukov.
Fixes #51378. See #47896.
