I tried this on a 3.0 MU-blog install.

Can't get it to work.

you probably want update_site_option then.

Ok I finally tracked down the bug I was having. It was an error on my part.

In my plugin I did update_option() and below it I was running wp_delete_post(1, TRUE); which in turn reset those two options and actually deleted the "page_on_front" in database.

I guess because they are related and wp_delete_post() takes care of that. I thought it only worked with the wp_term* tables not options.

So works as intended.

Btw seems redundant to have two functions doing the exact same thing? update_option() seems to work as should.

  • Milestone Unassigned deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

They're different. update_option() updates a blog option, update_site_option() updates a network-wide option in multisite/MU mode.
