Admin Columns
[resolved] Custom User Fields return blank screen (5 posts)

    When I add a user meta field to the Users list, and then try and sort, I get a blank screen. Nothing at all comes back.

    This is on WP 3.5, networked edition. I'm thinking it's the Networked Edition part that is breaking it. It works fine on a regular edition with the same settings.

    I am experiencing this same problem. Sorting by user-meta works on a standalone WP installation but returns no results in a multi-site installation.

    Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

    Same problem here. Any fix for this?

    This is a bug in the Codepress Admin Columns Pro add-on.

    In WordPress, user meta is stored in the wp_users table and not in wp_xx_table. On line 206 and 207 of the file cac-addon-pro\classes\sortable\classes\user.php:

    $wpdb->prefix should be changed to $wpdb->base_prefix


    Replace line 206 and 207 with
    $user_query->query_where .= " AND {$wpdb->base_prefix}users.ID IN ({$column_names})";
    $user_query->query_orderby = "ORDER BY FIELD({$wpdb->base_prefix}users.ID,{$column_names})";

    Hi fried_eggz, thank you for the fix, I have included it in the next release v1.0.5, which should be available now.
