#11472 new enhancement

Should QuickEdit remove posts from lists as needed?

Severity: minor Version: 2.9
Component: Quick/Bulk Edit Keywords: needs-patch
Focuses: ui, administration Cc:


Create a draft post. Visit Posts / Edit, and quickedit the draft. Set its status to Published and save. It remains around, with the published status, instead of being removed from the list.

Reporting this just in case, as it might be a UI feature rather than a bug.

Looks like a bug to me because when I'm in the draft list I do not want to see published posts. That's somehow irritating.

It should disappear and be replaced with the thing bar we use when something has been trashed, and say --"Post title" has been published. [Undo].-- or similar.

Unless I am mistaken this doesn't need a design as much as design feedback on the suggested solution. I am just going to make sure it has the keywords for that.

The team agrees that @janeforshort's solution is the way to go:

"It should disappear and be replaced with the thing bar we use when something has been trashed, and say --"Post title" has been published. [Undo].-- or similar."

Just to play devils advocate here. Isn't the entry left in view until refresh in order to allow the user to revert their change if it was unintentional.

Switching a draft post to published and realizing it shouldn't be public currently is easy to revert by re-editing the item. In the proposed solution removing the entry then forces the user to try and find it in their published posts list which could be very long.
