  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 6.0.1

Milestoning for 6.0.1 for visibility.

@itsabhineet, can you provide any other details, such as:

  • All remaining information provided in the error message/stacktrace.
  • The code block (wrap this in {{{ code here }}}) used for get_posts().
  • Caching plugins that you're using.
  • Whether you can clear the cache and, if so, whether the issue persists/changes/disappears after clearing the cache.

Thanks!

  • The code block-
$args = array(
    'post_type'             => 'post',
    'post_status'           => 'publish',
    'posts_per_page'        => 30,

    'meta_compare'          => 'EXISTS',
    'orderby'               => 'rand'
);

$posts = get_posts( $args );
  • I am using only one plugin- Redis Cache. I cleared the cache, but it is still throwing the error.
  • I also rebooted my server, but the problem persists.

@itsabhineet Thanks for this information, it really helps!

I see that the Redis Cache plugin was updated to version 2.0.25 and the latest changelog entry states:

Removed broken wp_cache_add_multiple() function

Have you updated the Redis Cache plugin to version 2.0.25? If not, updating the plugin should hopefully resolve the issue. Let us know 🙂

Otherwise, I'd suggest reaching out to the Redis Cache developers on the support forum so that they can do some digging and find out if the issue lies there.

The Redis Cache Plugin is already up-to-date at version 2.0.25 and still throwing error.

However, I just noticed that the error occurs only when the Redis Object Cache is enabled.

Also, this has happened after the WordPress 6.0 update. The same version of Redis Cache Plugin was working fine before the update.

So, it seems that the Redis Cache Plugin has some issues with WordPress 6.0.

Thanks.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

This certainly is an issue with my plugin and not WordPress core. Let's move this here: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/orderby-rand-in-get_posts-stopped-working-after-updating-to-wordpress-6-0/
