WordPress update problems update
This post is of no interest unless you’re a WordPress user/admin or, possibly, happen to have helpful knowledge of the system. Or you’re extremely bored and have already read everything on all the cereal boxes in the house.
We’ve got a couple of outstanding issues:
Authors can’t edit other author’s posts, which is bad. There was supposedly a fix for this I found on the support forums… didn’t work.
Authors can’t delete/edit comments that are responses to other author posts. In 1.2, there was a way around this — you could go around, edit the comment, then delete it. Not so in 1.5. At USSM, authors need to be able to edit/delete comments in any thread, preferably from the “edit comments” page.
If you don’t disable plugins first, you’re screwed for plugins, for reasons no one’s explained, and there’s seemingly no way to fix it once you’re in.
Also, I haven’t re-implemented the “comment spammer” question, which has resulted in our first piece of straight comment spam since I used Dave Pease’s contribution.
