WP2.7 - HTML tags showing in link category descriptions

Reported by: kpdesign's profile kpdesign Owned by:
Milestone: 2.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.7
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch, tested
Focuses: Cc:


HTML tags are being displayed in the description field in the Link Category listing when using the full edit mode.

  • If the description is empty, a line break tag is being shown.
  • If there is a description, it has opening/closing paragraph tags showing.

Editing one link in full edit mode causes the above behaviors to be applied to all links in the list at that time.

Using Quick Edit does not cause this behavior. Opening each link category in Quick Edit and saving causes the HTML tags to disappear for that category.

Pretty sure this is a dupe of another ticket, But as usual, I cant find it.

Its caused by _cat_row() double-filtering the category data IIRC.

Replying to DD32:

Pretty sure this is a dupe of another ticket, But as usual, I cant find it.

My apologies if this is a duplicate. I went through the list of tickets (sorted by ticket number) from the most recent down through around #6500, checking subject lines, and didn't see one with a subject line that seemed to be about this same issue. If you're already aware of it, then I'm sure it will get fixed before the 2.7 final release.

I do know that this does not happen with post categories, only the link categories.

Just noting that this issue still exists in 2.7 Beta 3.

BTW, I was unable to find a duplicate ticket for this issue either.

Dunno if this fixes the whole issue, but have attached a quick edit.

I've tested the patch by mrmist and found that it resolves the issue for me with the link categories - no HTML tags show after doing a full edit of a category.

I looked at the other ticket ryan referenced, and it seems that poster's issues were linked to a plugin that he is using. My issue did not related to a 3rd-party plugin - this was happening on a default WP install.

(In [9740]) Use clone to break object refs when setting and getting cache. see #8146 #8191

#10 @mrmist

It seems to have fixed the issue for me.

#11 @kpdesign
