#13105 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Users cannot cancel pending admin email changes

In a multisite setup, when non-super-admins change their site's admin email they are shown the following message (until the new admin email is confirmed).

There is a pending change of the admin e-mail to {email}. [Cancel]

The cancel link is wp-admin/options.php?dismiss=new_admin_email

The logic in options.php, however, specifically forbids non-super-admins from taking that action.

Non-super-admins who click the cancel link will get a "Cheatin' uh?" message.

  • Milestone changed from Unassigned to 3.0
  • Owner set to nacin
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Nice catch, I didn't think about that.

If necessary, we can remove the dismiss option. Otherwise, we can handle it in options-general.php.
