#57594 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Correct type in rss_widget_feed_link filter docs

Reported by: sabernhardt's profile sabernhardt Owned by: joedolson's profile joedolson
Milestone: 6.2 Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version:
Component: Widgets Keywords: needs-dev-note

In changeset:52031, the rss_widget_feed_link filter's DocBlock says the first parameter is a string. However, I had recommended returning false to remove the link.

Mentioning both possibilities is probably enough, though I think switching to __return_empty_string would improve it (in the documentation and in Twenty Twenty-One).

Patch looks good thanks @sabernhardt

@audrasjb @joedolson Could this be worth adding to 6.2?

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 6.2
  • Owner set to joedolson
  • Status changed from new to reviewing

It certainly cleans things up. It's a minor tweak, so I don't see any reason not to get it into 6.2. I can take that.

  • Keywords needs-dev-note added; has-patch removed

The dev note from WP5.9 probably could be updated. Here's a draft for the modified example and revision note:

add_filter( 'rss_widget_feed_link', '__return_empty_string' );

For Twenty Twenty-One, the after_setup_theme action contains the filter. Update: Since March 2023, Twenty Twenty-One's filter returns an empty string instead of the boolean false. See #57594.
