  • Has anyone done a comparative analysis of all the “wp_list_*” functions?

    I ask because I made the the assumption that these functions all acted in a similar fashion, has similar arguments lists, etc.

    Yea, I was wrong.

    For example:
    some use ONE/ZERO while others use TRUE/FALSE
    some use ‘extract( $r )” while others use “extract( $r, EXTR_SKIP )”
    some use “‘title_li'”others don’t

    I have found this to be confusing and frustrating. Yea, I know, it’s me, but I prefer an API that uses a common parameter structure when functions have common names and common expectations.

    Anyone have any issues if I do this comparative analysis of these functions and then propose how to “unify” them to work in concert and is a similar fashion?
