We updated our wordpress to 5.8 (we also tried 5.8.1 today), and just after that, we have an error on post edit page, in the console

data.min.js?ver=a9e98fe3ad76884fe7909ba8348395b7:2 An error occurred while running 'mapSelect': Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'clientId')
The error may be correlated with this previous error:
TypeError: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'clientId')

Original stack trace:

When we downgrade to version 5.7.2 of wordpress, error disappear

We found the problem, and it is coming from our custom post taxonomy named "selection", in the args we put "show_in_rest" true, when it is false it is ok but we dont see that in Gutenberg so it is not the solution, and when we rename "selection" to "selectiontest" for example it is works but we lost our datas inside this taxonomy

We looked at "Reserved Terms" of wordpress, but "selection" is not in the list (https://codex.wordpress.org/Reserved_Terms)

Our code

                $args = array(
                        'labels'            => $labels, // $labels is our labels array
                        'hierarchical'      => true,
                        'public'            => false,
                        'show_ui'           => true,
                        'show_admin_column' => true,
                        'show_in_nav_menus' => true,
                        'show_in_rest'      => true,
                        'show_tagcloud'     => false,
                        'rewrite'           => false

register_taxonomy('selection', array('post'), $args);

For the args, we are using the same config for other taxonomies too but the only "selection" is a problem, maybe something was added in the 5.8 and create a conflict with this name ?

Someone there ?

I also tested this taxonomy "selection" in a fresh wordpress installation, default theme by wordpress & 0 plugin, but error persist

  • Component changed from General to Editor

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

It sounds like selection might need to be added to the list of the reserved terms.

Replying to SergeyBiryukov:

Hi, thank you for your reply. What does it mean ? "Selection" is a reserved theme and we need to update "selection" taxonomy name by another name ? Or WordPress will get an update about this conflict ?
