Description (last modified by azaozz)

get_attachment_link() returns the URL for the attachment page. As these pages have been removed on new installs of WordPress the returned URL links to a page that subsequently redirects to the image. This produces unnecessary computing cycles and delays visitors reaching the eventual destination.

When attachment pages are turned off, the function should return the same value as wp_get_attachment_url().

Follow up to #57913.

Yep, makes sense to avoid the redirect and improve performance. Could potentially be a little unexpected when the link is not to an image but to another type of file, but seems this is the case already.

Also fixed a typo in the description, assuming the link is to ticket 57913 where this was implemented.
