#52820 reviewing defect (bug)

Possible logic error in wp_trim_excerpt()

Reported by: theMikeD Owned by: SergeyBiryukov

Reading this code, it looks like the wp_trim_excerpt filter's $raw_excerpt parameter will be empty if $text as supplied to the function is empty. This should be the value of $text at L3824 should it not? Or do I mis-understand?

This PR assigns the correct value for $raw_excerpt if the passed $text is empty. Right now $raw_excerpt is empty if $text is empty.

Hello @theMikeD. Thanks for the ticket. Yes, I believe you're correct. $raw_excerpt passed to wp_trim_excerpt filter is empty if $text is empty. In my PR above, I placed $raw_excerpt = $text; below the apply_filter( 'the_content' ) because I still believe that $raw_excerpt should be processed by that filter. Others can chime in their thoughts regarding this.
