Detached media sorted in reverse by date
|Reported by:||sbressler||Owned by:|
Media that's unattached to any post (i.e. at this page: "/wp-admin/upload.php?detached=1" for a WP install) seems to be sorted by post_date ascending (starting with the oldest media) rather than descending. I was able to replicate this in WP 2.9.1, WP 2.9.2 MU and WP 3.0.
I couldn't quite find the correct line to fix, but line 305 of media.php does correct sorting:
$arc_query = "SELECT DISTINCT YEAR(post_date) AS yyear, MONTH(post_date) AS mmonth FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE post_type = 'attachment' ORDER BY post_date DESC";
So it must be somewhere else since that query doesn't run if loading detached media.
