#18870: Empty posts of custom post type do not appear in posts table
 Reporter:  metai         |      Owner:
     Type:  defect (bug)  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  UI            |    Version:  3.3
 Severity:  major         |   Keywords:  needs-patch
 Reproduced this bug both on a clean WP 3.2.1 install and today's
 (2011-10-06) nightly ("WordPress 3.3-aortic-dissection"), completely empty
 theme, no plugins installed or activated.

 Bug reproduction:
 - empty theme (this is a backend bug)
 - functions.php only contains the definition of a custom post type copied
 verbatim from the example at
 - create new "product"
 - neither fill in the title nor the content
 - click "Publish"

 WP will annouce "Post published". The status will remain "draft". The post
 will not show up in the "products" table, and not in the drafts filter. It
 is, by common user means, not reachable anymore.

 When going back to the edit screen and moving the post to trash, it will
 show up in the "trash" filter, titled "Auto-Draft". Also, if content is
 filled into the editor, it will show up in the table with "(no title)".

 (I'm setting this to "major" severity because I've had several customers
 create inaccessible entries this way. I only found out because they
 uploaded images to these entries, and the elusive post was linked under
 "attached to" from the media table. Also, I think it's a UI error, so I'm
 assigning it to the "UI" component.)
