#59175 new defect (bug)

register_block_type is not working with symbolic links

I try to register new block inside functions.php of my theme with register_block_type( DIR . '/build/speech' ); function.
block.json is located inside './build/speech' directory.

The block registered correctly, but files editorScript and editorStyle can't enqueue because of the symlinks problem.

$is_theme_block variable set to false while
$style_path_norm points to /srv/http/
$template_path_norm points to /srv/http/

My theme is physically located on /srv/http/ path, but WordPress core on /srv/http/

This doesn't seem to be the best way to check if a block is part of a theme.

@antonlukin There are been changes to the block registration process in WP 6.4. It is possible that you could test the latest beta to see if that fixes the issue.

This ticket was mentioned in PR #5460 on WordPress/wordpress-develop by @spacedmonkey.

I believe it too late for 6.4, but maybe 6.4.1.
