#56206 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add missing `@since` notes to `gallery_shortcode` documentation`

Reported by: desrosj's profile desrosj Owned by: audrasjb's profile audrasjb

The gallery_shortcode() function was introduced in version 2.5. It looks like there are some @since tags that could be added for the gallery_shortcode() function to improve the historical documentation.

A few I identified looking through the version control blame trying to track something else down:

  • In [27302] the HTML elements used for the itemtag, icontag and captiontag attributes were changed when HTML5 support was added through add_theme_support().
  • #24979/[25665] introduced a link attribute in 3.7.
  • #6368/[7496] switched to actually using the $attr parameter to shape the output of the shortcode, introduced several new attributes in including size, itemtag, icontag, captiontag, and columns, and also changed the markup from <div> tags to <dl>, <dt> and <dd> tags, etc. for 2.8.

A good function to use as an example is add_theme_support() (source), which has over a dozen @since tags for historical context.

This ticket was mentioned in PR #3076 on WordPress/wordpress-develop by bengreeley.
