  • Keywords has-patch added
  • Milestone changed from Unassigned to 2.9

You should use 'administrator' instead of 'level_10'.

Replying to scribu:

You should use 'administrator' instead of 'level_10'.

The original patch did have 'administrator', but a user point me the fact that sometimes the administrator default account could not exist or renamed for security hardening

  • Keywords has-patch removed
  • Milestone changed from 2.9 to Future Release

This will break the auto upgrade.

I doubt this will be addressed since its not much of a problem in practice. Postponing to a later release for future consideration.
