[resolved] Video Post Format Must Have a Title? (5 posts)

    I just tried the 3.6 Beta with twenty thirteen theme. I was excited about the audio video upload and tried to upload a video in mp4 format and published the post. Then went to live site and post did not appear on the site. I came back and clicked on "Post published view post" link and got a 404 page not found error. Then I came back and gave that post a title and updated it. It appeared on the site after that. I came back to post edit screen and removed post title and updated. The post title was not removed.

    I don't know if it is a bug or not but it seems like I can't publish a video post without a title.

    tried a fresh install on localhost repeated the same steps again with the same results.

  3. This is because the autogeneration of titles needs some content to pull from. I can reproduce this on audio and image Post Formats. So yeah, you either need a title OR some content for now :)

    Thanks Ipstenu, apparently it is already a known bug so I am sure it will be resolved before the final release. I was glad to report my first bug to the WordPress community :)

    Should we mark this topic as resolved?

  5. FYI, if you make a trac ticket yourself, link to it here so we know.
