#54586 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Avoid translating empty plugin headers

WPCS recommends not to translate empty strings. On the other hand, plugin headers may not all be filled, but since #19597, _get_plugin_data_markup_translate() translates them all whether they are empty or not.

I propose to check that the string is not empty before attempting to translate it.

Looks good to me. I added a PR to run the unit tests, and then it should be good to go.

In 53181:

Plugins: Avoid translating empty plugin headers.

This change aims to avoid unnecessarily translating empty strings from plugin headers, by removing empty fields from translation process in _get_plugin_data_markup_translate().

Props Chouby, johnbillion, audrasjb.
Fixes #54586.
