Attachment display settings in the Media Library are ignored for audio and video inside 'Standard' post format and pages
|Reported by:||sennza||Owned by:||nacin|
Sometimes both clients and I will upload audio and video files through the media uploader and link them to Attachment Pages so that people can do the old right click -> Save link as... thang.
Currently in trunk the Link to Attachment Page in the "ATTACHMENT DISPLAY SETTINGS" is ignored for audio and video and the new [audio] and [video] shortcodes are applied no matter what is selected.
I can understand that this is desirable behaviour in both the Audio and Video post formats to reduce confusion for the user but I think it would be acceptable to remove those shortcodes in the Standard post format and for Pages (and CPTs) as well. i.e. Give the user some control when acceptable.
To reproduce this upload either an .mp3 or .mp4 through the media uploader in a Standard Post format or in a Page and under "ATTACHMENT DISPLAY SETTINGS" choose "Link To Attachment Page" and the shortcodes for audio and video will be apply so that MediaElement.js will be triggered.
I'm not sure if this is the desired behaviour so I'll tag this as a 2nd-opinion.
