#15546 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Bailing too early hides the version number in wp-admin

Milestone: 3.3 Priority: normal

When running multisite, we decline to show the version number in the footer and in the right now box.

In both situations, we should still show the text -- current_user_can('update_core') is designed to whether they also get an update nag, and that should apply to multisite, too.

This is a MU-era vestige I'm strongly inclined to end. (Both functions returned false if not is_site_admin().)

I'm wondering, should non-super-admins ever see the current version at all?

  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 3.3

Refreshed for 3.3. Change logic in update_right_now_message() to only call get_preferred_from_update_core() if current_user_can('update_core').
