#50047 new defect (bug)

Taxonomy parent select field not cleared after creating category

Severity: minor Version: 5.4

Focuses: ui, administration Cc:


When creating a new category in the create category view and a parent is selected, the parent selector field is not reset to "None" after successful submission.

The same is true for custom select fields added to this view.

Don't know if this behavior is on purpose but IMO doesn't make sense?

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

I'd say not clearing the Parent field might be handy for adding multiple child terms, but I can see it both ways.

Let's get some more feedback on whether this is expected behavior.
