#33541 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

"View Page" button takes to 404 when page is set to "Pending Review"

Reported by: wpdev101's profile wpdev101 Owned by: wonderboymusic's profile wonderboymusic
Milestone: 4.4 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.3
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


This happens only when permalinks are turned on ( not set to Default ).

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Add new page
  2. Set status to "Pending Review"
  3. Click "Save as Pending"
  4. Click the "View Page" below the title input

The "View Page" button below the title input has a regular URL ( as it was published ) instead of the preview URL, so it leads to a 404 page.

The issue happens for posts as well, not just pages.

The suggested fix is in get_sample_permalink_html function ( wp-admin/includes/post.php ) by changing:

if( 'draft' == $post->post_status ) {


if( 'draft' == $post->post_status || 'pending' == $post->post_status ) {

I am new to submitting bug fixes so I apologize if I did something wrong ( seems I did with the file update, it's not showing changed line ). I'll learn more about it.

Edit Post: When a post is "Pending Review", the "View Post" link should behave like ot does for drafts and generate a preview link.
