#27605 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

WP Editor link dialog content visible before Tiny MCE is initialized

Reported by: mattheu's profile mattheu Owned by: nacin's profile nacin
Milestone: 3.9 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.9
Component: Editor Keywords: has-patch commit dev-reviewed
Focuses: ui Cc:


To reproduce:

  • Add a tinyMCE using wp_editor() to an options page, inside a hidden element.
  • The content of the editor link dialog is displayed at the bottom of the page. See screenshot below.
  • When the hidden element is shown, initialize the editor. The link dialog content disappears.

This happens because the link dialog is hidden using CSS found in editor.css.

This is not loaded until the TinyMCE editor is initialized, so until this point the content is visible, but unstyled.

This patch fixes this bug by hiding the wp-link-wrap element using an inline style so it is not visible on page load.

Yes, wpLink used to have an inline style in 3.8. The patch has a typo, missing a >.

mattheu, could you supply some code to trigger this? This is not easy to reproduce.

The issue came to light whilst testing this plugin:

However I have uploaded some code that allows you to reproduce the issue easily.

I was actually slightly mistaken in my original description.
Load the page with editor visible.
The issues occurs when you remove an editor and the editor stylesheet also.

I realize this is pretty edge case... and I would be happy to allow for it in my plugin. However as this did not occur on 3.8, I thought it was worth raising!

After testing this, it seems like the CSS file should be printed before the editor wrap div. However, in the example posted, it's clear that a custom container is removed, not what gets printed, which would include the CSS file either way.

I'm fine with this, but in order for it to not regress, I'd like there to be a comment of some sort.

Another note to make: class="hidden" won't work on the frontend, so we resort to an inline style.
