#51096 new defect (bug)

Meta boxes hooked on 'edit_form_after_title' don't appear on block-editor page

The Gutenberg/block-editor page does not print meta boxes hooked on edit_form_advanced action. Meta boxes hooked on edit_form_advanced only show up in classic editor mode.

Block-Editor pages should still print out the meta boxes. Even if they cannot, for technical reason, be printed directly after the title.

I believe this should be viewed as a regression/bug. Not a feature request/enhancement.

  • Summary changed from Meta boxes hooked on 'edit_form_advanced' don't appear on block-editor page to Meta boxes hooked on 'edit_form_after_title' don't appear on block-editor page

That's an unfortunate copy-paste typo.
Hook I'm talking about is edit_form_after_title

I've no idea how edit_form_advanced meta boxes behave on block editor pages.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 5.8

This issue was discussed during a triage session today and it was decided to move it to the 5.8 milestone to get more eyes on it.

When looking for background information about if or why there is no fallback for printing the metaboxes elsewhere, we found this migration guide: https://github.com/danielbachhuber/gutenberg-migration-guide.

  • Milestone changed from 5.8 to 5.9

Today is a freeze for 5.8 as it's Beta 1 day. As investigation is ongoing and there's not a patch yet, punting to 5.9 for resolution.
