#48236 new defect (bug)

Media attachment browser no longer provides id of attachment

This is a follow-up to #47458.

Issue #47458 removed the data-id attribute from the media attachment browser. This was a useful attribute, used by an (internal) plugin on our site to access the details of the currently displayed attachment. We used code similar to this to hook into the dialog:

wp.media.view.Attachment.Details.prototype.on('ready', function() {
	var postid = $('.attachment-details').data('id'),
		details = wp.media.attachment(postid);
	// do stuff with details

This functionality is now broken, and I can’t see another way to access the id of the attachment details being shown. (The item id in the query string is not reliable, as it’s not always updated in time, or at all.)

Could this useful attribute be restored? It doesn’t seem to affect the problem addressed in #47458 in any way.

Moving to the 5.2.4 milestone as this was introduced in a point release so ought to be back ported for sites affected by the auto update.

  • Milestone changed from 5.2.5 to 5.4

Unfortunately, with the impending 5.3 RC1, time has run out for this one.

I am going to punt to 5.4 for now, but it can be moved up into a minor when ready.
