Support » Plugin: Broken Link Checker » Error with 1.11.13 and other get_posts

  • Resolved Fabian Todt


    I just updated to the newest version (1.11.13) and encountered a 500 Error on the Site.
    The error states a undefined method is_user_logged_in in the accesspress-anonymous-post plugin. But since this error only occurs when updating Broken Link Checker – so I digged into it.
    is_user_logged_in is a pluggable function which is not available very early and get’s called in a pre_get_posts hook by the accesspress-anonymous-post plugin. Until now this wasn’t a problem because the resynch method of blcPostTypeOverlord used a custom SQL query to get posts, but now it uses get_posts which uses WP_Query and calls all those hooks. I can’t quite figure out when and how the resnych get’s started but it seems to be too early for is_user_logged_in to be available (= before init?). Maybe a suppress_hooks would be enough?
    I don’t think it’s the fault of accesspress-anonymous-post plugin, because it call’s the method in the pre_get_posts hook and in this hook the is_user_logged_in should be defined normally.

  • Hello @gaambo ,
    Thank you for taking the time to report the issue,
    You’re right we are removing the SQL query and added a WP_Query to fetch posts on the plugin this update because that’s more optimized and convenient way of fetching the posts.

    For the pre_get_posts that was a really nice catch, but I think the plugin you’re using can do a better job at identifying when the use that hook and when it should be just ignored.
    However, we’ll check if we can fix those on the plugin as well.
    If I find any quick fix after a detail review of the plugin I’ll post it as well.

    Best regards,

    Thanks for your fast response. I’m with you regarding the pre_get_posts handling, there probably should be some kind of conditional check if the function is loaded and if it’s the right query – I’m gonna open a issue at the other plugin as well.
