Latest WP Update (4.9.2) changes user-new.php file. #1132
EXPLANATION OF THE ISSUE
My site just upgraded to 4.9.2 but s2member's patches could not verify one file:
The line s2member is expecting is:
The line has now been changed to read:
Please update the search script to account for this change. I'd love to see this file patched automatically again. Thanks!
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
@crazycoolcam I'm working on this for the next release, and wanted to ask about your experience with the patches in the past. Do you only apply manually the user-new.php patch after it failed, or do you patch all the files manually?
I ask because the instructions I see for the wp-login.php file don't seem to match what the patch is doing, and I was wondering if you have experienced any problems with the signups. If not, then the patch is most likely fine, and the instructions a bit outdated only.
I look forward to your input. Thanks! :)
I'm not exactly sure what the patch does, but I suspect it has to do with allowing tasks (likely levels and/or capabilities) to be immediately added to users on their registration.
I've not noticed any problems with signups, but I also don't get signups very frequently. (My site is multisite, but not a blog-farm. I use one or two user levels, but mainly custom capabilities.)
Let me know if you have any other questions.
