#28691 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

wp-login.php wp_attempt_focus does not run on logout

Reported by: MikeLittle Owned by: SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: 4.0 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.0
Component: Login and Registration Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


Whenever you visit wp-login.php the code runs the JavaScript function wp_attempt_focus to move the focus to the login field. However if the parameter loggedout=true is in the URI, the JavaScript function is not called. Another action is required (tab or click) in order to login again.

The reason the code is not called is because of the following logic:

  • The global variable $error

is set up to hold any errors generated by the processing on the login page.

  • The code to output the call to wp_attempt_focus checks whether the variable has been set.
  • If the variable is set, it does not output the call to the JS function.
  • However, there is a loop in the code line 176 that overwrites the global $error variable
    	foreach ( $wp_error->get_error_messages($code) as $error ) 
  • If I change that loop to use a different interim variable, the Javascript is output and focus is set. Moreover, the correct message "You are now logged out" is still displayed.
