#12086 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Hide bulk actions, item filters, and subpages when no items

How we show an admin page when there are no items to show is very inconsistent. I will attach a screenshot that shows the various examples.

Patch removes all bulk actions, item filters, empty items tables, etc., when there are no items. Additionally, empty subpages are hidden. (An exception is on Media > Library > Unattached, which has a "Scan for lost attachments" button. I've also added the number of Unattached posts next to the Unattached link.)

Patch also clarifies when Trash should show up in Media > Library. (It's if there is ever an item in Trash, whether it is enabled or not. Even if Trash is enabled, if it is empty, no need to show the link.)

It's a messy patch, but that's unavoidable -- all it's really doing is rearranging existing code.
