404 - File or directory not found
|Reported by:||kwgagel||Owned by:|
I started seeking help for this on the wordpress.org support forum, then when I found the source of the problem I reported it as a bug their ticket system.
They told me I needed to go to Buddypress... so, I'm reporting it here now.
We are running Wordpress using multiuser with Buddypress. Users are getting the 404 error after they click the save button in their settings.
I'm opening this ticket to report the source of the problem.
Wordpress 3.x Buddypress 1.5 Windows 2008 R2 (IIS 7.5)
Themes installed are all Buddypress compatible and all themes seem to be affected. All option pages are affected. Settings are updated when the user returns to the page - despite the error. A screen shot of the error can be seen at http://blogs.cnc.bc.ca/gagel/?attachment_id=38
The source of the problem appears to be in the wp_get_referer() function on line 164 in options.php. With the variables passed to the function it should redirect the user to the page they just submitted when they updated options. Instead they get the 404 error.
The page they're redirected to appears to be the absolute path of the submitted page appended to the absolute path again (minus the domain). So it looks like this: userblog/wp-admin/userblog/wp-admin/options-general.php?settings-updated=true
When I switch out the wp_get_referrer() function with the variable $parent_page then the redirect worked as expected.
I'm uncertain about leaving it like this as my change may have introduced issues elsewhere...
