Two solutions:

  1. update_usermeta() only updates the first value that it finds
  1. update_usermeta() uses $wpdb->get_col() instead of $wpdb->get_var()

The first would create more severe backward compatibility issues than the second.

Come to think of it, I have no ideea why $meta_id is passed at all (and as the first parameter at that). It's not accesible from anywhere else in the API.

Needs to be handled with #10905 I'd think.

  • Keywords has-patch added

Added patch to get all meta_ids and call actions on all meta_ids individually, rather than breaking current behavior by passing arrays.

I've never really noticed that update_metadata() can update more than one row at a time.
