#30526 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Wrong menu structure if user don't have create_users permission

Reported by: stas-softangible's profile Stas Softangible Owned by: wonderboymusic's profile wonderboymusic
Milestone: 4.1 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.1
Component: Users Keywords: has-patch commit
Focuses: administration Cc:


I have removed create_users permission from administrator user.
As expected on "All users" panel the button "Add new" disappeared, but on left menu link "Add new" still exists. Clicking on it displayed confusing error "Cheating huh?".

Probable place of the bug:
File: /wp-admin/menu.php
Lines: 195-200

The promote_users check is wrapped in is_multisite() in user-new.php, but not in menu.php.

In 30659:

The menu items for users.php and profile.php that require the promote_users cap should be wrapped in an is_multisite() conditional a la user-new.php.

Props SergeyBiryukov.
