Bulk action issues are somewhat outlined…

Bulk action issues are somewhat outlined in #16166 #16031 #16187. We’ve been able to group the issues into four problems.

Four problems needing solving:

Problem 1. Wontfixwontfix A resolution on the bug tracker (and generally common in software development) that indicates the ticket will not be addressed further. This may be used for acceptable edge cases (for bugs), or enhancements that have been rejected for core inclusion. for 3.1. Custom Bulk Actions don’t have action handlers. Even if they existed, developers would need to know that they need to call WP_List_Table::add_query_args() before wp_redirect. We need a way for this to be pluggable without burdening developers on redirecting (plus with their own query args).

Problem 2. Fixed. We need a sanity check for max pages. This is #16187. Basically, this needs to be applied to any other appropriate list tables. Most major ones (posts, comments, media) are handled though.

Problem 3. Bulk Actions reset the sorting and paging. This is fixed in #16166 (posts, terms, comments, media) but we need to apply this to the other list tables.

Problem 4. Post restriction filters — categories and dates, for example, but really anything added through restrict_manage_posts — are reset after a bulk action the same way sorting and paging are. This can be added into add_query_args().

The plan at the meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. here is to break on all of this, and revisit later.
