Description

Preview Button in Page Editor does not work when javascript is disabled.

Instead of a preview, the button opens a new tab containning the actual page.

I expected the button to work. Infact the button did not work.

WordPress works with limited functionality when JS is disabled. This is one of these cases.

  • Keywords ui-feedback ux-feedback dev-feedback added; close removed

That's what I've experienced in practice. Shouldn't the button removed in that case to not mislead the user? (Or something similar). I can understand that the feature is not available w/o javascript, but that's only one aspect.

Something similar:

The "Collapsed menu" is displayed on current HEAD of trunk but does not work if javascript is switched off.

WordPress works with limited functionality when JS is disabled. We should add a warning as discussed in #13516.
