Drupal 7 does not support HTML5 fields, and thus simpletest for D7 doesn't either. However, you can still use HTML5 with the help of contrib modules. We've discovered that if you do use contrib to use HTML5 fields, our tests fail due to the DrupalTestCase class not supporting HTML5 field types.

Here's a patch that's really more of a backport as this support is already present in D8. Apologies if this is a duplicate, I couldn't find an appropriate issue.

Why would this cause failures all over the place like that?

Lets try again.

Noticed that we accidentally removed support for text fields. Ooops! Resubmitting.

Okay, then I think this isn't a feature request but more of a... what, a bug report, I guess? There's no option for "backport". This is already in the 8.x-dev branch.

I'd like this in D7 too, if at all possible. :)

What issue added it for D8?

Letharion’s picture

There's no particular issue that made all the changes. The WebTestBase class contains support for all the HTML5 field types, and a git blame will show that it was added over a number of different commits and over an extended time period.

This is effectively a backport, but not of a particular patch.
