  • Component changed from General to Users
  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

The error messages are just translated strings coming from wpmu_activate_signup(). I don't think there's any point in escaping them as we trust translations coming from Also, this would prevent anyone filtering the messages through gettext to include some HTML if they wanted to.

Two notes on your patch for future reference:

  • Please create patches from the base directory of your VCS checkout, so that it includes the full path to the file src/wp-activate.php and not just wp-activate.php
  • Please adhere to the WordPress coding standards and add spaces between parentheses.
