HTML in Gallery Captions Not Rending in Visual Editor

Reported by: macmanx's profile macmanx Owned by: azaozz's profile azaozz
Milestone: 4.4 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.9
Component: TinyMCE Keywords: has-patch needs-testing
Focuses: javascript Cc:


When a caption including HTML is added to a gallery image, the HTML is not rendered in the Visual editor and instead displays as plain text. See attached screenshot.

This is in contraction to regular image captions containing HTML which do render in the Visual editor.

Issue reproduced in WordPress 4.2.2 and 4.3-alpha-32724 with no plugins and the Twenty Fifteen theme.

It would be great to get this patch tested @iseulde, @ocean90 :) It still applies cleanly.

Introduced in [27408].

I have a concern about unfiltered HTML, see comment:10:ticket:27574.

With 32616.patch, I was able to get a JS alert via the caption field. Single (non-gallery) image captions appear to handle this differently, could not trigger an alert there.

In 35341:


  • Sanitize and render HTML in captions when showing a gallery preview (wpView).
  • Encode/escape HTML entered in the text field in the wpLink dialog.
