#33062 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Comment status box focus management and accessibility

Reported by: afercia Owned by: SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: 4.3 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.2
Component: Comments Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: accessibility, javascript Cc:


When editing a comment, the Comment status box has the same functionality to edit the timestamp date as the Post Publish box. Focus should be handled in the same way, see #33060.

See the screenshot below:

  • when clicking the Edit link, focus should be moved to the first form element when the animation is complete
  • when clicking OK or Cancel, focus should be moved back to the Edit link before the animation starts


Currently, when clicking Edit, OK or Cancel, focus is lost and users have to start tabbing again from the document root.

Worth noting for accessibility the orange used for the Pending radio button label doesn't have a sufficient color contrast ratio but this is out of the scope of this ticket.
