  • Resolved miniCarl


    I have created a widget with a select that lets the user choose a post.
    When the save button is pressed tho, all the <option> elements seem to disappear. The change is saved, but i have to reload the page to see it.

    Here’s a video demonstrating the issue:

    And here’s my plugin for you to download:
    The code for the <select> is located in mod6.php lines 111-124.

  • Still looking for a solution on this one

    You’re self-closing the select tag, here..

    <select class="widefat" id="'.$field_id.'" name="'.$field_name.'" />';

    Which is causing the select to close premature when it tries to re-render..

    It should read..

    <select class="widefat" id="'.$field_id.'" name="'.$field_name.'">';

    Tags that have a closing element(li,ul,select,option…etc..), shouldn’t be self-closed, the only elements that need to be self-closed are hr, br and img.. (possibly might be one or two more, but they’re the common ones)..

    Issue resolved, thank you Mark.

    You’re welcome, and thanks for posting back to let us know.. 🙂
