 Hello @paulamit, welcome to WordPress Trac!

 `the_permalink()` doesn't return the permalink but rather prints it
 directly and already uses `esc_url()` before doing that. You can review
 the [https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/the_permalink/
 source of the function in the code reference].

 @paulamit @mahbubshovan @hztyfoon It's seems like you're working together.
 Please make sure you're also testing you patches and try to use the code
 reference to check how a function actually works. Thank you!
