Support » Plugin: WP Category Permalink » admin – screen options in admin posts list don't save

  • First thank you for the gr8 work 🙂

    Perhaps you are all ready aware of this issue with wp4.5, then please forgive me for the noise.

    I did see this plugin was marked compatible up to wp4.4.x

    At first look it seamed to work fine with wp4.5 (with 250k posts), but I had a strange bug in wp-admin/edit.php (post editor “all posts” page) where “screen options” selection of what columns to hide in the post list gets “forgotten”

    It took me a while to figure out that the issue appears when activating wp-category-permalink plugin.
    Note: the issue remains even after disabling the plugin.
    The “screen options” worked again only after running this SQL
    DELETE FROM wp_usermeta WHERE meta_key LIKE ‘wp_manageedit-postcolumnshidden’

    Typical value that held the issue:
    a:1:{i:0;s:19:”scategory_permalink”;}

    Hope this will help solve the problem.

    Hello,

    The plugin is being entirely rewritten now so that issue might disappear at the next update. It it doesn’t, kick me 🙂

    Actually, I still have no idea why this happens. Do you?

    When I looked in the php I did see that things had changed in wp4.5 on how those options where stored/retrieved
    But I then realized that the permalink selection seems to be integrated into wp4.5 and that for that feature I didn’t need the plugin no more.

    Not, this has never been integrated. The plugin is still recommended by WordPress on its official page about permalinks 🙂

    This also, I have not seen, I am not sure why this bug happens but I will find out.

    I have the same issue. I tried deactivating “WP Category Permalink” but it didn’t help. I am still troubleshooting the issue.

    I have the same issue too. The columns checkboxes will not save after clicking “Apply”. I also use the WP Category Permalink plugin…

    Help!

    On recent versions of wp this plugin isn’t needed any more

    We were able to fix the screen options in admin posts overview with the help of this method:

    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/screen-options-arent-saving/

    it requires you to go into the database tables and delete a row that causes the problem. This extra row was probably introduced by an older version of this or another plug-in, we’re not sure. But we’re happy that it’s working now!

    Indeed, it was an issue linked to an old version of the plugin 🙂 How to remove it is explained at the very first post here.
