#37586 new defect (bug)

Menu customizer: search results not properly filtered

Reported by: virgodesign's profile virgodesign Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 4.3
Component: Customize Keywords: has-patch dev-feedback needs-testing

customize_nav_menu_available_item_types is a filter located in class-wp-customize-nav-menus.php.

The purpouse of this filter is to restrict item types available in the Menu Customizer.

This filter should be applied even if I perform a research using the search field in Menu Customizer.
But this does not happens.

While in Menu Customizer, doing a research, in search results shows up even items of specific types excluded with customize_nav_menu_available_item_types filter.

We can resolve this issue using another filter always located in the same class: the customize_nav_menu_searched_items filter.
With this filter we can restrict the selections of items received from the search result just before sending them to the frontend (ajax response).

But this could be considered only a workaround and not a solution, because items should be filtered/excluded by type BEFORE wordpress performs the query to the database.

We should suppose that, if we uses the customize_nav_menu_available_item_types to filter item types available on Menu Customizer, most likely we do not want search for elements of theese item types.

#37586.1.diff needs to be reviewed by an active developer and tested (by anyone currently able to test patches). Milestoning as this is a valid bug that has waited long enough for attention and should be resolvable with a minimal effort by an active committer.

  • Keywords needs-refresh added

The most recent patch fails against trunk, so this needs a refresh. There are a few WPCS nitpicks to be addressed as well.

@davidbaumwald Let me own this ticket :)

I'm wondering should we make the API simpler by changing the 2nd argument ($return_key) of get_available_item_types to $return_type which is array or string.
Mostly, we'll want to get an array of item array or an array of the item name. The current version allows us to get the array of whole item array or array of the specific key which is more flexible.
