#55221 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Feature image does not load media library in correct view.

Reported by: jhall_3rd's profile jhall_3rd Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 5.8.2
Component: Media Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


Clicking the feature image of any post that has one set will open the media library with "uploads attached to this post" chosen - though the select menu itself will display "images" Navigating away via the sel menu and then back to "images" corrects the issue.

1- edit post in CLASSIC EDITOR
2- open a post that has a featured image.
3- click "edit or update"
4- media lib opens in view "uploads attached to post" yet the selector will show "images" - the correct option should be "images" since user is wishing to select a new one or edit the existing.
