#22107 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

user_email_used error string is not used anywhere?

Reported by: pavelevap Owned by: SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: 3.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.0
Component: Multisite Keywords: has-patch commit 3.6-early
Focuses: Cc:


During localization I found a string that I could not see anywhere. I could reproduce it only in one situation and that does not make sense (string should not be displayed in this case). Maybe we could remove the whole string and related logic because is obsolete and never used? See attached patch.

Or if I am missing something, this string should be at least improved a little (capital letter).

Found one more piece of dead code:

We don't use 'generic' error code anywhere in core. If a plugin wants to display a custom error message there, signup_extra_fields action can be used for that.
