Support » Plugin: User Submitted Posts » jQuery Error when Tags Dropdown is Enabled

  • Resolved Amit Sonkhiya



    This a great plugin. However, there are a few concerns I wish to draw your attention to.


    1. I’m facing the following error to the developer console when there are multiple tags to be selected from the dropdown.

    Uncaught Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: option[value="["books","tease","visit"]"]
        at Function.ea.error (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)
        at ea.tokenize (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)
        at Function.ea [as find] (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)
        at n.fn.init.find (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)
        at new n.fn.init (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)
        at n (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)
        at HTMLSelectElement.<anonymous> (jquery.usp.core.js?ver=20200817:93)
        at Function.each (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)
        at n.fn.init.each (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)

    ea.error @ jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2

    ready @ jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2
    J @ jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2

    Screenshot URL:


    2. A Custom checkbox still treated unchecked in case the error above fires or a proper image size doesn’t meet (?usp-error=height-min,required-checkbox)


    3. Why does the appearance of the Tags/Category dropdown changes on postback if there is an error?


    4. How to keep all categories selected despite they are added at a later time? From the plugin settings -> Click to view/select categories -> Select categories to display in the Category field.


    Steps to produce:

    Default theme TwentyTwenty

    Form: Default form by USP

    Post Tags: Enable and require

    Use Existing Tags: Checked (Check this box to display a select/dropdown menu of existing tags (valid when Tag field is displayed))

    Custom field: Added

    Minimum image size required. I have 900×600.


    The form appears in a good state when it is loaded the very first time. However, in case of an error, the issues appear when there is ?usp-error=anything parameter in the URL.

    There is no customization done and all fields are default.

    Do let me know.

    Thank you.
