#19010 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

"Show on screen" checkboxes inconsistency with CPT

With the "Book" CPT example from Codex:

On the initial "Edit Book" screen load (i.e. when there's no metaboxhidden_book record in wp_usermeta), all meta boxes are displayed, but only "Featured Image" is checked in "Show on screen" options (see the screenshot).

Being called from meta_box_prefs() and do_meta_boxes(), get_hidden_meta_boxes() returns different results, due to different $screen values.

In meta_box_prefs(), it's:

WP_Screen Object( [id] => book, [base] => post, ... )

In do_meta_boxes(), it's:

stdClass Object( [id] => book, [base] => book )

Note the difference in base value.

Not sure what the preferred option is, but 19010.patch at least makes it consistent.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 3.3

This should be looked at, as part of the work on screens.

Is this still a problem after [19013]? We should try to pass the current screen object instead of IDs.

#4 @SergeyBiryukov

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Fixed in [19013].
