Test Report


Steps to test

  1. Access the WordPress Dashboard.
  2. Navigate to the 'Appearance' section.
  3. Select the 'Theme File Editor' option.
  4. Click on the 'Collapse menu' feature.

Test result

The functionality of the 'Collapse menu' feature has been rectified, and it is now operating in accordance with the desired behavior. Upon being clicked, it is observed to expand or collapse the menu as intended. Comprehensive testing was conducted on this feature, along with the examination of other menu items and the 'Plugin File Editor' tab to ensure their smooth operation.

In 55410:

Administration: Move wp-theme-plugin-editor script before </body>.

This changeset moves the wp-theme-plugin-editor admin script before </body> instead of in the <head>. This fixes an issue where the collapse admin menu feature was not working in the Theme|Plugin File Editor screens.

Fixes #57073.
