#34811 new defect (bug)

Preview Changes adds a new ?t= to url each time

Reported by: garethhadfield Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.3.1
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch close
Focuses: Cc:


Using Safari browser. When editing a page or post and you click the [Preview Changes] button it opens a new window/tab for the preview. If you close this preview window then click [Preview Changes] again you get a url that has ?t=XXXXX (you need to be quick to notice it since it immediately forwards to a different url).

The problem is that if you close that preview window and then click [Preview Changes] again then the url gets ?t=XXXXXX?t=YYYYYY and it keeps adding ?t= each time you click [Preview Changes].

The preview still works fine. But the extra ?t= appears to be unintended.

The bug is in some workaround code in wp-admin/js/post.js The workaround targets Safari and adds '?t=' + ( new Date() ).getTime(); to the url when you click the [Preview Changes] button.

Problem occurs in a fresh install of 4.3.1 and also in 4.4-RC1-35744.

Tested in Safari 8.0.7 (10600.7.12) OS X 10.10.4 (14E46).

Can confirm this using trunk. Wonder why that workaround is needed.

autosave.js doesn't contain the webkit fix from #18341 anymore, so it seems like this doesn't apply anymore.

edit: looks like it's in post.js now, my bad.
