#5843 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

WP_Screen may be null if remove_signups_from_user_query is called from within admin_init hook

Reported by: pauldewouters's profile pauldewouters Owned by: imath's profile imath
Milestone: 2.1 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.0
Component: Administration Keywords: commit
Cc: pauldewouters@…


Referencing this forum thread:

The function remove_signups_from_user_query in bp-members-admin.php makes a call to get_current_screen()

This function will return null if in the context of a function hooked to admin_init

In this case, a plugin I developed is running a WP_User_Query on admin_init so the pre_user_query gets fired and this fires the remove_signups_from_user_query function.

Method could check for admin_init like so:

if ( doing_action( 'admin_init' ) || $this->users_page != get_current_screen()->id ) { return;}

Thanks for the report.

Checking for doing_action( 'admin_init' ) seems overly specific to me. Let's just change our syntax a little bit:

// Bail if not on a users page
$current_screen = get_current_screen();
if ( ! isset( $current_screen->id ) || $this->users_page !== $current_screen->id ) {

Will that work?

thanks for your feedback pauldewouters

Yes i think boonebgorges's way is better, as doing_action does not exist in WordPress before 3.9 and BuddyPress supports from 3.6 to latest version of WordPress.

Could you test 5843.patch to see if it solves the issue ?

In 8984:

Make sure the current administration screen ID is set before checking its value

In BP_Members_Admin->remove_signups_from_user_query(), to avoid a notice error, we need to check that get_current_screen()->id is set.

Props boonebgorges
