PHPStan: Fix function argument type issues for WP 6.3

Focuses: coding-standards Cc:



Continuation of the the work to fix function argument type issues as reported by PHPStan. These issues are argument types passed to a WP Core and PHP's built-in functions.

The last report was created 3 years ago A new report should be generated as a starting point what issues remain to be fixed in 6.3.

Goals are to:

  • retain the current behavior (i.e. to avoid breaking changes).
  • retain the triggering of notice/warning/error, which are clues and indicators (i.e. rather than silently letting the problem propagate downstream).
  • gain PHP 8 compatibility.
  • ensure code coverage to validate changes.

This ticket is part of the effort to achieve PHP 8+ compatibility.

Thanks @hellofromTonya for reporting this. We reviewed this ticket during a recent bug-scrub session and based on the feedback received from the team we feel the need to keep in the milestone until later the in the cycle. It would be good to get a new PHPStan report as a starting point. Cheers!
