#47007 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

object-cache.php loaded before must-use plugins

I noticed that constants defined in must-use plugin were undefined if used in object-cache.php dropin plugin. Looking at wp-includes/load.php the object-cache.php check is loaded prior to must-use plugins.

I assumed must-use plugins are always loaded before all other plugins. If this is not a bug and it functions as intended, updating documentation would be helpful to note that must-use plugins are loaded after dropin plugins.

Thanks for the report @viktorix.

This is indeed intended behaviour, as dropins control some of the low level behaviour of WordPress that loads much earlier than plugins do.

The Codex is a wiki, therefore that page can be edited by anyone with a user account.
