Categories are removed when bulk editing posts

Reported by: ricjcs's profile ricjcs Owned by: peterwilsoncc's profile peterwilsoncc

Description

When bulk editing posts, categories in posts are automatically removed and the category is set to "Uncategorized".

How to reproduce?

  • Select some posts that have some categories defined
  • Update posts in bulk edit mode, you don't need to make any changes, just update

What did I expect?
I expected the categories to remain in the posts as no changes were defined.

For an example, see the screenshots.

This behavior appeared in version 6.4

Bulk editing is presenting several problems. If I define a new category for posts that are in different categories, all categories are removed except the new one.

These situations must be related to ticket #11302, which is something I was hoping would be implemented, but it will be showing unexpected behavior.

During the scrub, I have had the same issue when I reproduce the above. Will upload screenshots later.

A git bisect indicates this was introduced in [56712].

After discussion in Make/Core slack, there's consensus to revert [56712]. Testing confirmed reverting resolves the issue. And a revert cleanly restores this area of the functionality back to its original form before 6.4.0.

In 57093:

Quick/Bulk Edit: Prevent assigning posts to default categories during bulk edit.

During a bulk edit of posts with different categories, the categories for the edited posts would be reset to the default category: uncategorized by default.

This reverts [56712] to resolve the issue.

Props peterwilsoncc, hellofromtonya, jorbin.
Fixes #59837.
See #11302.

Quick/Bulk Edit: Prevent assigning posts to default categories during bulk edit.

Merges [57093] to the 6.4 branch.
