[resolved] wp_user table changes break my plugin (6 posts)

    It seems that WP2 has removed the following fields from the wp_user table:

    user_firstname
    user_lastname
    user_nickname

    I didn't see this schema change listed anywhere? The changes are also not reflected in the Database Description in the Codex. This is what keeps my 1.5 plugin from working in 2.0.

    Are we holding this data somewhere else in 2.0?

    Thanks for any help

    At a guess, wp_usermeta ?

    Yep. They are now:

    first_name
    last_name
    nickname

    in the usermeta table.

    Thanks to you both!

    What is the procedure for letting plugin developers know about schema changes? or for updating the codex? Does everyone contribute to the codex?

    thanks again
