#22569 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Show a better message on link-manager.php when links are disabled

Reported by: nacin Owned by: ryan
Milestone: 3.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


We enforce the disabling of links via map_meta_cap(), since it's easy and clean. But it does mean that cap checks fail, which usually produces "You do not have sufficient permissions".

I meant to add a second message, but never did. Let's do that.

Are those localhost URLs in the patch correct?

In multisite, a regular admin has manage_links but not install_plugins yet they still get a "please install" message that they cannot act upon themselves. Show the install message only if the user has both caps, otherwise the permissions error?

I think the call to user_can_access_admin_page() in wp-admin/includes/menu.php slams the door before these checks run.
