Looks fine. esc_html() is probably good to keep depending on some variable error messages.

The patch John has attached is modifying WordPress core to remove the HTML tags rather than patching the importer. So should be 3.2 or Future Release.

esc_html() is probably good to keep depending on some variable error messages.

This is the problem I had with #16816 which fell into obscurity. Will close that since this has a proposed patch.

These errors are shown unescaped only in the inline uploaders in the editor -- see media_upload_form(), wp-admin/includes/media.php line 1465 -- and seem to be shown escaped in wp-admin/async-upload.php though I do not know where or if the user will ever see the latter.

My thought behind the patch was mainly that the HTML tags weren't actually necessary in this context? Point taken about the larger issue of patching the importer though!

Let's figure this out?

I think stripping the HTML here makes the messages less useful so I did a quick audit of how core treats these messages:

  • wp-admin/media-new.php - redirects on any error to wp-admin/upload.php?message=3 and shows a poor generic message - "Error saving media attachment."
  • wp-admin/post-new.php - Media upload HTML - displays the HTML message (in red!)
  • wp-admin/post-new.php - Media upload Flash - displays the HTML message with the tags in it :(

So it seems at the moment we have inconsistent behaviour in core.

It seems like stripping out the HTML from these messages is the most compatible solution for 3.2
