Support » Plugin: Classic Editor » Can’t paste text into Title Box

  • I don’t know if it is this plugin or not.

    Since the last WP and classic editor, I can NO longer Paste Text into the Title Box via left click with the mouse.

    I have to use Ctrl+V to do it. Anyone else experiencing this problem???

    Yeah, don’t think it is this plugin. That sounds pretty… weird though. Sounds like there is some JS on the page that prevents right-clicks/context menus with the mouse, or perhaps errors out when trying to paste that way.

    Perhaps try it from a different browser or from an “incognito” window (to rule out any browser extensions interfering). If no good, perhaps look for errors in the browser tools.

    Thanks for responding Andrew.

    I also misstated and see you did understand right and left click lol

    I tried what you suggested. Two different browsers with addons and extensions disabled. Still does it. If it were a js problem, would it not affect ALL pasting anywhere on the page? It is just limited to the title box for some reason.

    Here are a couple screen shots of what happens when I right click the box. I did find that if I type at least one letter or number in the box, then right click, the menu with paste will appear.

    Ah, I see… This is a CSS problem in WP. Can reproduce it. If you right-click on the exact words “Add title” you are actually not clicking inside the form field but on its label. So the browser doesn’t show you the “Paste” menu. If you click in the white space after these words, or if there is already some text in the title field, the browser shows the Paste menu.

    For now please use the workaround of right-clicking in the white space after “Add title”. I’ll open a ticket on core trac to fix it.

    OK! I did not even realize that and did not try clicking in another area of the box. I always clicked close to the blinking marker by habit!

    Thanks Andrew.

    While I got your ear, is there a way to add custom emoticons to the the default list! I tried awhile back by adding some to the default folder but they did not show up in the list. If not, that would be a great feature to add in an update
