Autosuggest for tags suggests tag already chosen
|Reported by:||roytanck||Owned by:|
When entering tags in the meta box on a post (or page) edit screen in admin, the AJAX autosuggest will suggest tags that have already been added to the post (i.e. shown below the input field).
Steps to reproduce:
- Go to the post edit screen.
- Add a tag (example: "Apple") to the current post.
- Type "App" in the tag entry field and wait for autosuggest to come up.
- "Apple" is listed in the suggestions dropdown.
I've investigated this a little, and I don't think there's a really easy patch for this (mostly because of how suggest.js works). However, it would imho be very elegant to fix this. Perhaps autocomplete.js can be of service here (see issue #12399)?
