#20610 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Customizer: closing after activation still displays old theme as active

Reported by: duck_'s profile duck_ Owned by: koopersmith's profile koopersmith
Milestone: 3.4 Priority: high
Severity: major Version: 3.4
Component: Customize Keywords: needs-patch ux-feedback
Focuses: Cc:


  1. Customize an inactive theme
  2. Click "Save and Activate"
  3. Click "Return to Manage Themes"

Expected: See new theme in the "current theme" spot and an activation notice.

Actual: Same screen prior to clicking "Customize".

Since [20645] for #20507 and #19910.

"Save and Activate" should probably cause a refresh.

Replying to ocean90:

Should the Customizer be closed after clicking "Save and Activate" ?

I would suggest yes.

I think we should make Save and Activate close the Customizer, and/or add a second button for just saving, and then Save and Activate closes.

This might be a little too much, but what if we updated the theme page with ajax and jQuery? That would make the return from Customizer a little more seamless.

Just an idea...
