  • Ticket #46260 (5.1 Backwards Compatibility Issue: comment-reply.js) created February 15, 2019 9:56 pm
    tl;dr -> The changes made to comment-reply.js for the 5.1 release cause BC issues when comments are loaded in after the initial page load (via ajax for example). The reply link does not work as expected anymore, and can break commenting completely depending on the implementation. Issue Description In WP 5.0 and before, the comment reply links were hardcoded to the onclick event, seen here: ​ But in 5.1+ (since, comment-reply.js initializes by binding these links to the event handler. The problem is though, these links won't exist yet when the script is first loaded since they come in later via ajax. Replicating / Solutions I first replicated on a site using a custom ajax implementation, but you can get a similar result using a plugin like ​ Test on 5.0 versus 5.1 and you can see the difference. To maintain backwards compatibility, the comment reply script should take into consideration that the links won't always be on the page right away when the script is first loaded. As a fix for individual sites/plugins though (in case somebody stumbles across this ticket), you can call window.addComment.init(); at the end of your ajax callback to ensure the links get bound to the needed event handlers.

    41858.4.diff​ restores a simplified styling for the pagination links in the old upload modal: The hover and focus styles are the ones for standard links. The relevant CSS is in deprecated-media.css, together with all the other styling for this old modal. Patched from the 5.1 branch. Should then be backported to 5.0.

  • Ticket #46256 (Post editor meta boxes floating over content when using the Gutenberg ...) closed February 15, 2019 2:54 am

  • Ticket #46257 (Deleting a page can break the permalink of other pages if it had media ...) created February 14, 2019 4:36 pm
    Trashing and deleting a page can cause the permalink of another page to break the next time that page is edited. It is not obvious to the user that this will happen. It is also not obvious how to fix this, because when an image is not "Uploaded To" a particular page, it is not possible to edit the permalink. Start with vanilla WP installation using twentynineteen and no plugins Add New Page > Title: "Cat" Add Block > Image > Upload > Pick the image > Open Publish... > Publish Media > Click on the image that was just uploaded, see that it says "Uploaded To Cat" Edit more details > Edit (permalink) > Set to "dog" > OK > Update The permalink should now be http://localhost/cat/dog/ Add New Page > Title: "Dog" > Publish... > Publish See that "Page address" is http://localhost/dog/ Visit /dog/ to confirm the page is displayed Pages > Trash (Cat) > Trash (at the top of the page) > Empty Trash Pages > Dog > Make a change, such as adding text to the existing block > Update Document > Permalink > Notice that URL is now dog-2 Visit /dog/ to see that instead of the page, the image is instead displayed
  • Ticket #46256 (Post editor meta boxes floating over content when using the Gutenberg ...) created February 14, 2019 4:09 pm
    The css for the post editor needs a change so that meta boxes don't float over the content of the post. To reproduce it you just need to install a plugin that uses a meta box in the post editor. Then make a post with enough content to go past the bottom of the screen. The meta boxes will not move down. They will stay where the bottom of the screen was and lay over the post content. This is because .editor-writing-flow is set to height: 100% in the following CSS files. It needs to be set to height: auto or the height declaration needs to be removed so that the content grows and pushes the meta box containers down. /wp-includes/css/dist/editor/style.min.css Line: 9 /wp-includes/css/dist/editor/style.css Line: 2572 /wp-includes/css/dist/editor/style-rtl.min.css Line: 1 /wp-includes/css/dist/editor/style-rtl.css Line: 2560

  • I am taking my leave of Weblog Tools Collection, and thanks for everything! March 31, 2013 1:41 pm
    Not many of the present readers might know me very well, and that in part, is the reason that I have made the decision to transfer WLTC to more willing and presently capable hands. I am a stranger on my blog and the time has come for me to make sure that this blog, its contents and its knowledge are archived and preserved and maybe rejuvenated at a later time. I delved into blogging tools back in 2004 when I started my Masters degree in CS. I wanted some code to mess around with in my free time and everyone was talking about blogging. I looked into a variety of tools, built a small Linux server for myself at home, and installed a few of the tools that were freely available at that time. I had a heck of a time getting a hold of MT (Moveable Type, the most well-known name) and […]

  • Where to Find WordPress News March 31, 2013 12:05 am
    The landscape of news has changed so much over the last few years that news about a particular topic or platform is readily available to anyone within an instant. With WordPress, I imagine that could be one of the perks of powering over 16% of the web, but it’s true that news is becoming incredibly accessible. In short, news is everywhere. Speaking of WordPress in general, you can of course acquire official direct news from WordPress News, but you can also take a peak behind the curtain and follow news in the making at Make Though it’s only specific to the blogging platform, News is also worth watching for WordPress development news, as users often get access to new WordPress features before they’re released, so you’ll be able to try new features rather than just read about them. There’s more news than just direct official news, like I […]

  • Do You Work From Home? March 12, 2013 2:00 pm
    There has been a lot of talk lately about working from home and maintaining a distributed workforce. Web-based software, like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal, are taking over the publishing industry and allow you to work from anywhere with an internet connection. Though, even though they can be managed  from home, working from home and maintaining a distributed workforce is not yet broadly acknowledged in society as a successful and efficient alternative to working in an office. Despite working with software that doesn’t need to be tied to one specific workstation, you could still find yourself tied to a desk in cubicle. I work full-time for Automattic and have the pleasure of both working from home and setting my own hours. After all, I only need a browser, an email client, and IRC client, and Skype to do my job.
