#39816 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

When non-super admin clicks "login" on Meta widget, he is sent to the root blog, not the one he is on.

For example, when the admin for blog XXX (not a super-admin) brings up the blog:


and clicks on "login", he arrives here:


as opposed to:


Super-admins do not exhibit this bug. I have three multi-site installations and two exhibit this bug. All are WP 4.7.2 and have similar plugins.

I began to get reports of this after the 4.7.1 update.

I am now getting complaints that the "My Sites" pull-down is not showing any sites, despite the user being an administrator on multiple sites. Not sure if this is related to the above bug.

I have looked more deeply into the original issue, and it appears that a call to "get_blogs_of_user()" is returning null on the affected systems. I am trying to follow up on that now.

More digging... when calling "get_sites($args)" with a $args value like this (see below), null is returned:

    [number] =>
    [site__in] => Array
            [0] => 1
            [1] => 9
            [2] => 4
            [3] => 13
            [4] => 473
            [5] => 413
            [6] => 313
    [archived] => 0
    [spam] => 0
    [deleted] => 0

  • Component changed from General to Database
  • Keywords close added

You can close this ticket. The problem was that the "archived" column in our wp_blogs table had a corrupt value that displayed as "0" but would not be found when using the "WHERE archived=0" clause.

I have no idea how this column got corrupted, or what was really in the database, but setting non-one values to zero fixed everything.

You can't imagine how long it took to track this down!
