#5248 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

Missing dot in query.php, category exclusion problem

Reported by: jaroche's profile jaroche Owned by: westi's profile westi
Milestone: Priority: low
Severity: normal Version: 2.3
Component: Query Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


I found that there's a missing dot when assigns the value to $whichcat in query.php, this interferes with the categories exclusion (generated with $q['category__not_in'] ).

Patch against trunk

  • Keywords needs-testing has-patch added
  • Milestone changed from 2.3.1 to 2.4

I've updated the patch to catch another case of the same issue.

Needs testing though

Pushing to 2.4 as 2.3.1 is nearly out the door.

Concatenation is purposefully left off in some place to avoid creating invalid queries. category_name and categorynot_in might work together but category_name and others will not.

  • Keywords reporter-feedback added

Has this been fixed by [6345] as that issue may have caused problems with these query vars?

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

The lack of dot seems valid. Please re-open with a step by step test case to reproduce if it's still occurring.

I've updated the westi's patch for trunk. This fixes de bug for 2.9.2 and trunk.

To reproduce this bug:

  1. Create a single plugin that adds:
  2. Visit the category 'A' page (/category/a/) with posts categorized 'B', where category 'B' has been excluded.

  • Keywords query reporter-feedback removed
  • Milestone changed from 3.0 to 3.1

You can also duplicate this with a url such as:


Any posts in both will show, whereas you'd expect it to skip some.

However, I'm still going to push this out of 3.0 due to impending beta. I believe there are some other taxonomy query tickets which would be ideal to patch at the same time.
