get_site_option caches default value when option does not exist — at Initial Version

Reported by: wpmuguru Owned by:
Milestone: 3.3 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.2.1
Component: Multisite Keywords: has-patch

If get_site_option is passed any default value on a non-existent site option then a subsequent call to update_site_option will not add the site option. Because the site option does not exist, it does not get updated either. To reproduce

  • in the sitemeta table edit the active_sitewide_plugins meta_key to be active_sitewide_plugins_x
  • go to the network plugins screen and network activate any plugin

You get the message that the plugin was activated, but it doesn't because the site option doesn't get saved.

Options for fixing

1- change the get_site_option in update_site_options to not use cache 2- add a notsiteoption cache and cache the non-existence of the site option 3- don't cache the default value in get_site_option

Option 1 is quick & easy Option 2 is more work but the way the blog options are handled and it would make things more consistent Option 3 is probably not the preferable solution
