Adding a Link without URL - Validation Feedback Fail

Reported by: ianatkins Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 2.9.1
Component: Validation Keywords: link, validation

Submitting the add link form (wp-admin/link-add.php) with no content entered for any fields returns the 'link added' message. When infact the link was not added.

A more intuitive approach would be to validate for the form fields inline, making title and/or URL required field(s).

Seems like no message should be shown at all -- that's our general UI response in the admin area for submitting a blank form.

All that is required is URL. If you omit that, or return an empty form, you'll be routed back to an empty form.

Going to simply remove "Link added." for when that is the case. Validating that a URL was provided would require some heavy refactoring that I don't think is needed.
