#5430 closed enhancement (fixed)

Change is_page() to accept array as argument

Reported by: azaozz's profile azaozz Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 2.3.1
Component: Template Keywords: has-patch

I often see

if ( is_page(3) || is_page(8) || is_page(15) )

... etc. in templates. Same goes for is_single(), is_author(), is_category() and perhaps is_tag(). It would be much cleaner/easier if these conditional tags can accept an array as argument as well. The attached patch changes the is_page() function to accept an array of page IDs, page slugs or page titles and can be used like this:

$my_pages = array ( 3, 'another-page', 'Special Page' );

if ( is_page( $my_pages ) )

It is (of course) backwards compatible and there's no noticeable performance hit at all, as is_page() is called just once instead of several times.

The attachment didn't come up as expected, sry. Here's the change
line 155 in query.php, instead of:

if ( $page == $page_obj->ID )
    return true;
elseif ( $page == $page_obj->post_title )
    return true;
else if ( $page == $page_obj->post_name )
    return true;


$page = (array) $page;
if ( in_array( $page_obj->ID, $page ) )
    return true;
elseif ( in_array( $page_obj->post_title, $page ) )
    return true;
elseif ( in_array( $page_obj->post_name, $page ) )
    return true;
