Wrongly formatted error message in Tools > Import

Reported by: djpeanut Owned by: duck_
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: trivial Version: 3.1
Component: Import Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


Very small bug. When uploading an XML file in the Import dialog which is bigger than the maximum allowed filesize for uploads, the error message is incorrectly displayed:

"The uploaded file exceeds the <code>upload_max_filesize</code> directive in <code>php.ini</code>."

Obviously the HTML tags shouldn't render and the wrapped text should be formatted as code. But this isn't the case. (Win7/Chrome/WP3.1)

I should have mentioned that this occurs when using the Wordpress XML import dialog.

When uploading a large file via wp-admin/admin.php?import=wordpress, I get a properly formatted error. Are you using a different upload method/importer?

I'm using the same method. I will go back and double check to see if it's a plugin conflict. Apologies if I overlooked something.

echo esc_html( $file['error'] )

Would have to double check that any error message is always generated internally by WordPress before removing the escaping.
