#14813 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

wp_dropdown_roles should use names from $wp_roles->role_names

Currently wp_dropdown_roles() uses the name of the roles from $details->name, shouldn't it instead get the name from $wp_roles->role_names[$role] array?

See http://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/wp-admin/includes/template.php#L721 for where I mean.

See where get_editable_roles gets it's data from.


That's exactly where the data is coming from already... ;)

Ahh makes sense - I was just updating the $role_names[] array on global $wp_roles; Should that not be supported? Seems funny to have the nicenames in an array - then also in the Role array
