    WordPress 4.1.3 Released 

    Shortly after we shipped WordPress 4.2, we shipped WordPress 4.1.3 to fix an issue caused in WordPress 4.1.2.

    Specifically, WordPress 4.1.3 fixed database writes for esoteric character sets, which were broken in the WordPress 4.1.2 security release. However, neither UTF-8 nor latin1 were affected. More information on this issue can be found in #32051.

    Additionally, we shipped WordPress 4.0.3, 3.9.5, 3.8.7, and 3.7.7 to fix the same issue on other branches.

    Spinners and dismissible admin notices in 4.2 

    There are two UI component changes in 4.2 aimed at better experiences moving forward that may affect plugin and theme authors. The first is the spinner element, which does come with a non-critical visual breaking change. The second is admin notices, which are an enhancement and do not affect current implementations.

    Core’s spinner is implemented using the .spinner class. Up until now, spinners have been hidden using display: none and then toggled using jQuery’s .show()/.hide() methods. While this works, it has two fundamental problems: it ties us to jQuery-specific helpers, and more importantly, does not reserve the space for the spinner when hidden, leading to elements moving around on the screen whenever the spinner would toggle. The more appropriate solution would be to use CSS’s visibility property, which does reserve the visual space, and control that visual behavior via a class so that any future changes to CSS are inherited by anybody using that component.

    To that end, to show a spinner, you should now add a class of .is-active to the spinner element, and remove that class when it’s no longer active. This state-communicating naming convention is a part of some of our longer-term goals when it comes to semantic markup, so also take note of that. The breakage here is that spinners will no longer show using jQuery’s .show() method, as all it does is set an inline CSS display property, and so you will need to account for that going forward. The best thing to do would be to update to toggling the class as noted, and if maintaining compatibility in the short term with older versions of WordPress is a concern, detect the version and inject CSS into admin_head that applies display: inline-block to .spinner.is-active. There are other methods for handling version compatibility as well, but this is likely to be the method that is most maintainable and easy to immediately understand. Work on this was handled in #22839.

    The second UI component that we’ve improved in a more visible manner is admin notices. Admin notices are often a source of confusion – if you publish a post and then refresh the edit screen, you’ll still get the notice that you’ve published the post, leading you to wonder if you’ve published it twice or what exactly is going on. They’re also distracting, takes up precious space, and can cause visual fatigue, leading to users ignoring notices that really do need their attention. So, we’ve done two things: one, we’ve made the vast majority of core notices user-dismissible (#31233), and two, we’ve also made sure those notices won’t come back when you refresh the page and have JavaScript on/working (#23367).

    Any notice can now be made dismissible by ensuring the it has the classes .notice and .is-dismissible (recognize that naming convention?). Core handles adding the close button and removing the notice for you. However, for the best possible user experience, you should ensure that those notices will not come back on a page refresh or when navigating to another page. There are two different paths for this. The first applies to notices that are added when a query arg is present in the URL, such as message=6. Core will now remove certain query args and use JS to replace the URL in the browser with that “cleaned up” version. By default, core handles 'message', 'settings-updated', 'saved', 'update', 'updated','activated', 'activate', 'deactivate', 'locked', 'deleted', 'trashed', 'untrashed', 'enabled', 'disabled', 'skipped', 'spammed', and 'unspammed'. To add (or remove) items to this array to accommodate your needs, use the removable_query_args filter.

    The second path, for notices that persist across different page loads, is to bind to the click event on the .notice-dismiss element in your own notice and trigger whatever it is your plugin may need to do to remember that the notice has been dismissed, such as storing a site or user option using Ajax. A note of caution that in an ideal scenario, core would eventually provide a framework for persistently dismissible notices that are not tied to query args, so be prepared for future changes if you choose to use this method.

      In supporting older WordPress versions with the new spinner modification wouldn’t you need to set `.spinner.is-active` to `visibility:visible`, not `display: inline-block;`?

    • Jonathan Bardo 6:37 pm on April 24, 2015 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      The lost notice connection spinner doesn’t show anymore. I think a css declaration is missing:

      #lost-connection-notice .spinner {
      visibility: visible;

    • Jonathan Bardo 7:11 pm on April 24, 2015 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      Note to those wanting to bind to .notice-dismiss: Since .notice-dismiss is dynamically added to the dom you will want to add your event like this:

      $(‘.notice.is-dismissible’).on(‘click’, ‘.notice-dismiss’, function(event){});

      If someone has a better suggestion, please advise.

    WordPress 4.2 Field Notes 

    WordPress 4.2 includes both new and improved features. It also includes changes under the hood.  While I’m sure you’ve been testing your themes, plugins, and sites in preparation for the release, you may have missed the announcements of all the changes. Here is a quick rundown of developer related things you should know:

    Additionally, the bundled version of jQuery UI has been upgraded from 1.11.2 to 1.11.4 and jQuery to 1.11.2.  The team also fixed 231 defects reported againgst previous versions of WordPress.  Please continue testing in preparation for the imminent 4.2.0.   WordPress wouldn’t be where it is without you.

    UPDATE: Add information on spinners and admin notices.

    TinyMCE views API improvements 

    In WordPress 4.2 there will be changes to the experimental TinyMCE views API. We don’t recommend this for use in production unless you closely follow the development.

    If you’re using it we’d love to get some feedback: bugs, suggestions, things you wish you could do with it… You’re also welcome to leave a comment with a link to your project. I’d love to know what kind of content you’re using it for and how you’re using it.

    Summary of the changes:

    • Simpler registration.
    • An easier way to update the view in the edit method.
    • You can choose to leave the text instead of replacing it with a loader. This is especially useful for our oEmbed views because we don’t know if the URL can be embedded until we get a response from the server.
    • You can now update the view text with a text of a different type (e.g. audio to playlist).
    • No need to use the setIframes method directly, render and setContent will handle it for you.
    • Already rendered views will never refresh again while editing other content. They do refresh when undoing or redoing things though, because TinyMCE resets the whole content unfortunately.
    • Options set in the match method (previously toView) will be added automatically to the view instance.
    • A couple of memory leaks were fixed and there’s a better way to bind and unbind views.
    • We added documentation for all the methods.

    How to use the API


    window.wp.mce.views.register( 'unique_name', {
    } );

    If you’re converting shortcodes to views, make sure unique_name is the same. They’ll be matched automatically. If you’re interested in custom matching, take a look at the embedURL registration in core.

    If the content of your view is static, you can set the content property directly, if it is dynamic, overwrite getContent. In most cases an ajax request is needed to generate the content, so use the initialize method and cache the content. Passing it through render will cache it automatically.

    This example will display the most recent images.

    initialize: function() {
    	var self = this;
    	wp.ajax.post( 'query-attachments', {
    		query: {
    			post_mime_type: 'image'
    	} )
    	.done( function( response ) {
    		self.render( _.map( response, function( data ) {
    			return '<img src=' + data.sizes.thumbnail.url + ' alt=' + data.alt + '>';
    		} ).join( '' ) );
    	} );

    To add UI for editing a view, you need to add an edit method. This example is taken from the gallery view. Use the callback to update the view with the modified text (shortcode).

    edit: function( text, update ) {
    	var frame = wp.media.gallery.edit( text );
    	frame.state( 'gallery-edit' ).on( 'update', function( selection ) {
    		update( wp.media.gallery.shortcode( selection ).string() );
    	} );
    	frame.on( 'close', function() {
    	} );

    It is not recommended to run JavaScript in the editor iframe. If you need to run scripts it is best to use a sandbox iframe inside the view. The API will automatically do this for you if it detects scripts in your content. For example the Google Maps API might alter the editor’s iframe body. This is not acceptable because the body content is serialised by TinyMCE on saving.

    In this example the content will be put in an iframe and you can do anything you want in that document.

    content: [
    	'<script src="//maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false"></script>',
    	'<style>img { max-width: none; }</style>',
    	'<div id="map" style="width: 100%;height: 500px;"></div>',
    	'<script>new google.maps.Map( document.getElementById( "map" ), { zoom: 0, center: new google.maps.LatLng( 0, 0 ) } )</script>'
    ].join( '' )

    If you do want to run scripts, use the bind and unbind methods and make sure there are no memory leaks.

    4.2 Release Dry Run 

    In preparation for a Thursday release, I’d like to do a dry run for 4.2 on Wednesday 15:00 UTC 2015.

    The goal would be to complete the dry run and freeze for about a day prior to release. We’ve pushed the scheduled release date by a day due to the 4.1.2 security release that went out on Tuesday morning.

    The dry run will include:

    • Testing various features, including Press This and the Customizer Theme Switcher
    • Generally testing the admin and common features using a multitude of devices and browsers, most notably mobile Safari on IOS and IE8
    • Running our usual unit tests including the specialty groups like multisite and AJAX
    • Doing scratch installs and upgrades from a variety of older versions

    If we’re satisfied with the results of the dry run, then we’ll freeze. If not, we’ll discuss our options and make a contingency plan going forward.

    If you’d like to help out and participate, we’d love to have you. Please come prepared to test!

    Shortcake (Shortcode UI) chat summary – April 20th, 2015 

    Present: @danielbachhuber, @matth_eu

    • Meeting focused on clearing up some of the remaining issues in the v0.3 milestone.
    • In v0.4, we’re looking into de-coupling Shortcake from the Media Library experience. If you have opinions on this regard, you should follow along on this issue
    • Matt has done some exploration of repeatable fields. The crux of the problem is our field templates include the field, and label and description. Fieldmanager and CMB use prototype HTML for repeatable fields. However, before we go about reinventing Fieldmanager, we should reach out to Metadata API working group to see how they’re approaching.
    • Supporting rich text editor for a shortcode attribute is a nice idea but has a couple fundamental flaws: 1) HTML can’t easily be stored in shortcode attributes, 2) TinyMCE views gets funky when there’s HTML in the inner_content. The idea needs more technical baking before we can commit it to a milestone.
    • Goal is to have remaining v0.3 issues into Fusion production by tomorrow morning PT, and then ship Wednesday or Thursday.

    WordPress Core Weekly 

    Howdy! Sorry, I dropped the ball last week so this week’s Weekly Roundup is a double issue — it covers April 4, 2015 [32003] to April 18, 2015 [32140].

    This week marks the release of RC1, which is the first release that many plugin authors and beta testers will test heavily. If you don’t already, now is a good time to check out the Alpha/Beta forums for any issues that crop up during this testing cycle.

    We’re only days away from the release of 4.2; let’s finish strong! 🏃👏 Here’s the rundown of recent changes:


    • Update to 4.1.9+. Changes:
      • Fixed bug where extra empty paragraphs would get deleted in WebKit/Blink due to recent Quriks fix.
      • Fixed bug where the editor wouldn’t work properly on IE 12 due to some required browser sniffing.
      • Fixed bug where formatting shortcut keys where interfering with Mac OS X screenshot keys. [32058] #31895

    • Remove the empty paragraph that sometimes is left over after adding an image caption. [32141] #32003


    • Remove selected views when inserting content but not when loading all content, and remove the ref. to the selected view node on resetting the views. [32140] #31998
    • Resize sandbox iframes on load. [32056] #31480
    • Empty the content in the timeout, so it doesn’t render iframes twice. [32022] #31669

    • The emoji JS files should be run through the script_loader_src filter, as they would be if they were registered scripts. [32097] #31938
    • Tidy up the wp_encode_emoji() regex, and clarify the function comment on Unicode 8 support. [32096]
