#18386 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Bug in custom query when "Front page displays": "A static page"

Reported by: cyberspy's profile CyberSpy Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.2.1
Component: Query Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


Here is the bug I have found:
When Front page displays is set to: A static page
and Blog posts are displayed on other page a bug accours...

Lets prepare test enviroment, with clear wp installation and two posts, where one of them is set to default category, and other is set to newly created category (which defautly has ID = 3).
Now, prepare two pages, and in Setting -> Reading set Front page to one of those pages, and Posts page to second one.

If You would like to exclude posts from category no 3 from main blog index, normaly You would use:
<?php query_posts($query_string . '&cat=-3'); ?> in index.php (or specified loop file linked there).
This would work if blog index is set as home page, but fails to work when above test enviroment is used.

Confirmed. Taxonomy Queries are not processed when page_for_posts is set; As a result, the category exclusion code is never run causing query_posts to not be effective not work as expected..

Attached patch deals with the taxonomy side of things, however Author specification and a few other things might also be affected (those in the else branch here: Line 1467 of query.php)

(note: I havn't tested any side effects of the patch, I'm hoping someone who feels like digging into WP_Query will take it and run :))

Thanks for reply and patch. Could You explain, what tools can be used to easily apply this patch to local version(Ps/Mac) beside normal file editing?
After patching will try do do some testing.

Sadly the bug is still here.
Could anybody take look at it again, and prepare working patch, and also submit it to someone, who will know what to do with it, so it can be added reviewed and added to next milestone?

Ups, the patch is still working ok, so the only question is, how to submit this solution to be approved and added to next WP version?

  • Keywords needs-patch added; has-patch removed

moving back to needs-patch since this patch will definately have unintended side effects, there would have to be a better way than this.
