#22236 new defect (bug)

edit.php: Apply when Bulk Actions selected forgets tag= filter

Reported by: kw217 Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.4.2
Component: Quick/Bulk Edit Keywords: has-patch needs-testing
Focuses: javascript Cc:


Using WordPress 3.4.2, go to Posts, and click on one of the tags on one of your posts. The URL now contains tag=<tag>, and the screen shows the first 20 posts with that tag.

Now click the Apply button just next to the "Bulk Actions" drop-down at the top left.

I expect this to reload the page but otherwise have no effect.

Instead, it reloads the page without the tag=<tag> URL parameter, and shows the first 20 posts (irrespective of tag).

This is surprising and confusing - it's easy to accidentally hit "Apply" without having chosen an action, but at first glance it looks like nothing has happened. The user can then go on to do a bulk action (e.g., add category) without realising the tag they previously had selected is now no longer selected.

Note that filters (e.g., by category) that are set up using the Filter button *are* preserved when Bulk Actions / Apply is chosen - it's just tags that are lost.

pankajxdx: Unfortunately, that patch will only work in very specific conditions, the first of which is you have to have WordPress installed in the /wp/trunk directory of your site. The patch should really look at the root cause of this by seeing if the important parts of the URL can be passed with the form in some way so the URL can be rebuilt properly.

Seems like this should be taken care of in JS so we don't waste time reloading the page.
