Copy link functionality in Media not working

Reported by: sharduld Owned by:

Focuses: ui, javascript Cc:


  1. When you upload any WordPress media, a link of the uploaded media is displayed in the right sidebar of the modal(as highlighted in the attached screenshot). The label of the link is set as "Copy Link", but clicking on 'Copy Link' does not copy the link to clipboard.

I am not sure about the relevant JS file to add this code, so adding the code here-

jQuery(document).on('click', 'label[for="attachment-details-two-column-copy-link"]', function(){
	var copyText = document.getElementById("attachment-details-two-column-copy-link");

	  /* Select the text field */
	  copyText.setSelectionRange(0, 99999); /*For mobile devices*/

	  /* Copy the text inside the text field */

The code added in the description copies the link(to the clipboard) on clicking the "Copy Link" label highlighted in the attached screenshot.
