#23374 accepted defect (bug)

Custom photo title is overwritten upon completion of upload

Reported by: franksvalli's profile franksvalli Owned by: joedolson's profile joedolson
Milestone: 6.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.5.1
Component: Media Keywords: has-patch dev-feedback
Focuses: ui, javascript, administration Cc:


Version: 3.5.1 (latest)
Environment: Chrome 24.0.1312.57 on Mac OSX 10.8.2

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a new post and click the Add Media button.
  2. Add several large photos (>4MB). This is necessary to give you time to perform step 3.
  3. Add new titles to the photos that are in the process of uploading.

Output: after a photo finishes uploading, its newly-added title get overwritten by a default title (taken from the filename)
Expected output: on the completion of a photo upload, the title field should be checked and preserved if necessary, not overwritten

Hi franksvalli!

Thanks for reporting this. Apologies that it's taken so long for you to receive a reply.

I'm able to reproduce this. It also appears to clear out the rest of the fields after the upload finishes, so you lose Title, Caption, Alt Text, Description, et. all.

I agree that we should either fix this, or disable the fields until the images have finished uploading.

hey guys,

i dig into this, the issue seems to be that if you edit a file that is being uploaded some properties that are necessary to update a file, this can be seem on media-models.js:257

one quick fix, can be hide the form while the file is uploading

These two issues seem very much like the same problem; have had issues reproducing 58783, but I'm going to pair these and see if I can learn more with this tickets info.
