#51287 new defect (bug)

Administrators & Editors can't create localfile links in a multisite installation

Reported by: peikgabriel's profile peikgabriel Owned by:
Milestone: Awaiting Review Priority: normal
Severity: major Version:
Component: Formatting Keywords:
Focuses: multisite Cc:


Steps to reproduce:

Clean WordPress Multisite installation.
Create a user with Administrator (or Editor) capabilities, not Super Admin.
Login as the new user.
Create a new page, and create a local file link in the visual editor.
Enter a local file URL, e.g. localfile:E:\foobar\
Publish and refresh the page.
The link has now been stripped into a \foobar\.

Note, if you try this with a Super Admin user it works as expected, and the link is correctly created.

Why does WP strip the localfile:E: part of the link if the user is not an admin?

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

Just noting that this is likely an issue with the KSES library stripping out a part of the link due to localfile: not being in the list of allows protocols.
