Get the post title.

Syntax Syntax

wp_latest_comments_draft_or_post_title( int|WP_Post $post )

Description Description

The post title is fetched and if it is blank then a default string is returned.

Copied from wp-admin/includes/template.php, but we can’t include that file because:

  1. It causes bugs with test fixture generation and strange Docker 255 error codes.
  2. It’s in the admin; ideally we shouldn’t be including files from the admin for a block’s output. It’s a very small/simple function as well, so duplicating it isn’t too terrible.

Parameters Parameters


(Optional) Post ID or WP_Post object. Default is global $post.

Return Return

(string) The post title if set; "(no title)" if no title is set.
