Failing to create temp

Reported by: mfcorral's profile mfcorral Owned by:

Severity: major Version: 4.2

The function wp_tempnam fails when the argument $filename constains a long query string.
There is a simply workaround by adding the following two lines to file.php after the line number 154:

153    // Use the basename of the given file without the extension as the name for the temporary directory
154    $temp_filename = basename( $filename );
155    $temp_filename = parse_url($temp_filename);
156    $temp_filename = $temp_filename["path"];

  • Severity changed from normal to major

The problem is when a plug-in/theme has a large query string in the download URL (like enfold theme has), you can't update the plug-in/theme.
