#10762 assigned defect (bug)

Bulk editing creates invalid URIs

Reported by: hakre Owned by:

Description

They simply get too long for example if you move 999 posts to trash. It might be helpfull to switch to the post form method.

Change History (17)

Never did understand why a GET request is used in this case. Should use POST.

comment:2 azaozz5 years ago

Bulk Edit submits the main form on the page which uses GET. It could be refactored to use POST but that's not a trivial task.

comment:3 follow-up: hakre5 years ago

For me it seems that replacing $_GET with $_REQUEST is pretty trivial. It might not be trivial to test if that's working then.

Replying to hakre:

For me it seems that replacing $_GET with $_REQUEST is pretty trivial. It might not be trivial to test if that's working then.

If you bulk-delete posts, the IDs are passed back to the form, that way the undo button can be generated. So hidden fields would also need to be created to ensure that the URI can't get too long.

It's a complicated process to go through however many forms use bulk actions and redo all of the add_query_arg code and such. Definitely quite the task.

As this isnt a Regression from a previous version, and there is no patch, I'm moving to Future Release.
