Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

(First time submitting a ticket...)

Fixed for Quick Edit in #19474, this is still happening in the main edit screen. Selected categories float to top upon updating the post, losing their visual relationship with other categories.

  1. A selected child category, if the parent is not selected, is removed from its place under its parent and shown as a parent at the top of the list.
  2. If both a child category & it's parent are selected, both float to the top, and the parent-child relationship is preserved visually.
  3. In both cases, unselected categories remain orphaned at the bottom, with unselected child categories no longer shown as children.

  • Component changed from Editor to UI
  • Description modified (diff)
  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is intentional, see #10982.

A filter was introduced in #20054, allowing plugins to change that behaviour.

This plugin implements the change: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/category-checklist-tree/
