Stop! Rest a litle, look around – there is a real life beyond the boring office and amazing, but virtual Internet. Take a minute, book hotels with a couple of clicks. Fly to old Europe. Rent a car. Visit beautiful historical places. Go for a walk. Sit at the street cafe with a cup of coffee. Enjoy with fresh mountains air and Alps nature. That was my dream for all this year and it will become reality tomorrow. Let me leave you for next 2 weeks. I take a vacation and go to my year 2012 Europe holiday trip: Germany, France, Belgium, Wiesbaden, Constanz, Paris, Mont-Seint-Michel, Gent, Brugge, Frankfurt. Go-go-go!
update_corecapability is used to decide, if user can update core WordPress file using built-in WordPress upgrade feature or not. What do you think?
Thoughts are just thoughts, while they are not confirmed by practice and strong experiment. Thus, I decided to check this obviouse guess, satisfy my curiosity and investigate, how and for what purpose WordPress uses update_core capability really. Result of my little investigation will be shown to you below.
Did you ever meet with situation, when you searched plugin for your special need at WordPress.org, digged the Internet by hours, but without any success, and then, some time ago, you accidentally found some post about brilliant professionally made plugin, which sitted silently at WordPress plugins repository long time? Or you found that, what you need eventually, but – how many time did you spend on it?
- Limited privilege escalation where a site administrator could deactivate network-wide plugins when running a WordPress network under particular circumstances.
- Cross-site scripting vulnerability when making URLs clickable.
- Cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in redirects after posting comments in older browsers, and when filtering URLs.
Full list of changes made in version 3.3.2 is available here.
PHP delevelpers could see changes in source code directly using this link.
If you didn’t install this update yet, consider to do it right now. It’s very important to defend your lovely blog as much as possible.
- User Role Editor could be available now for single site administrators (Administrator role) under multi-site environment. You should define special constant in your blog wp-config.php file for that.
- One of “User Role Editor” users with 1100+ sites in the multi-site network reported that URE doesn’t update roles for all sites, but stalls somewhere in the middle. Other network update method is realized as alternative. Due to my tests it works approximately 30 times faster. If you met the same problem, try it. It will be great if you share your experience with me. But be careful. It’s recommended to make 1st try on the backup copy, not on a live site.
- Persian translation is updated.

“Google launched a petition. Wikipedia voted to shut itself off. Senators’ websites went down just from the sheer surge of voters trying to write them. NYC and SF geeks had protests that packed city blocks.
You made history today: nothing like this has ever happened before. Tech companies and users teamed up. Tens of millions of people who make the internet what it is joined together to defend their freedoms. The free network defended itself. Whatever you call it, the bottom line is clear: from today forward, it will be much harder to mess up the internet.
The really crazy part? We might even win.
Approaching Monday’s crucial Senate vote there are now 35 Senators publicly opposing PIPA. Last week there were 5. And it just takes just 41 solid “no” votes to permanently stall PIPA (and SOPA) in the Senate. What seemed like miles away a few weeks ago is now within reach.
But don’t trust predictions. The forces behind SOPA & PIPA (mostly movie companies) can make small changes to these bills until they know they have the votes to pass. Members of Congress know SOPA & PIPA are unpopular, but they don’t understand why–so they’re easily duped by superficial changes.
The Senate returns next week, and the next few days are critical.”
The reason was simple. Did you guess already?
Wow!!! It started work as expected. Thank you, darling Microsoft.
