#38224 new defect (bug)

Not enough results in menu-page-add-search

Reported by: clearsite Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 4.6.1
Component: Menus Keywords: dev-feedback needs-testing needs-patch

While editing menu, trying to add a page, searching for the page "research" in a database with hundreds! of pages with this word in it, looking for that ONE page with just 'research' as title, the page is not listed

admin/includes/nav-menu.php, _wp_ajax_menu_quick_search with type=quick-search-posttype-page the WP_Query lists posts_per_page = 10, but the search does NOT provide a paginator.

I call this a bug because it is not working as intended; I assume you intended that the search would allow a page to be found, so the bug would be "pagination is missing"

I have hard-coded a -1 to avoid the issue for now

possible solutions are:

  • add pagination
  • add a filter on the arguments so we can set a different page-size without altering the code

I would love to see this in 4.8. I will refresh the patch + add tests to look more like this https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/35577 which was released in 4.7.
