#44842 new enhancement

Search post box in mobile

Reported by: prashantvatsh Owned by:
Milestone: 5.3 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Posts, Post Types Keywords: has-screenshots has-patch 2nd-opinion needs-design-feedback
Focuses: ui, administration Cc:


In mobile view when I go to posts screen, I found that search box is not on the top so I dragged all the way down and found that search box is there which is bit odd because why someone will go all the way down looking at posts to search any post.
Please see: https://prnt.sc/kmo3jn

We can make it like themes screen https://prnt.sc/kmo3k4 by just leaving the search box with a placeholder to search posts and since just typing and entering the text in the box works so they will be able to search the post

@SergeyBiryukov may I know please if we are going to add this in the core or not? I can see a few other tickets related to the mobile UI/UX like this one https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/44854. I just checked in the latest version and these issues are still there.

  • Version 4.9.8 deleted

The patch still applies cleanly and does move the search box above the post list. IMHO this should probably be changed in Core. I vote for committing this. I'm going to milestone this to 5.3 in order to get a decision.

Looks like this has been the location of the field since [26134], which brought in MP6 and completely redesigned the admin area.

I am going to tag this for some design feedback. I dug through the commits for the MP6, but I couldn't find any specific specific mentions of this in the commmit messages.

Also, it's worth noting that this change would also affect the comments, pages, users, and sites pages as well (pretty much any page that uses the stock search for a WP_List_Table).

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
