edit.php: Apply when Bulk Actions selected forgets tag= filter
|Reported by:||kw217||Owned by:|
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.
