Issue with spam, archiving and multisite

  • Today I found a strange but serious issue on Multisite installation.

    If I marked a user as SPAM under Network Dashboard, all the sites which he is a subscriber or Contributer were also archived / Marked as spam.

    I thought that’s because he is the contributor and changed to subscriber. But the sites were still archived and recovered only after the user been marked as not-spam

    I would like to know if this a kind of glitch or normal behavior?

    Thanks

  • Looks like normal behavior to me, i tested it on my dev site and it did exactly the same with me too. I guess that wp uses the user id to identify the user in this case.

    If I marked a user as SPAM under Network Dashboard, all the sites which he is a subscriber or Contributer were also archived / Marked as spam.

    I think I should write it in more detailed

    Example :
    A user “A” who is a subscriber on ‘X’,’Y’,’Z’ subsites and contributor on ‘W’ on the network named “NetworkX”

    The subsites are owned by users B, C and the Super-Admin(Super admin can access them but none other after marked as spam). If the user ‘A’ is marked as spammer(Mark as Spam), all the subsites he own, he contribute, subscribe and authored were also blocked. So all the users X,Y,Z were also lost access to their own subsites.

    I believe it is something we need to think

    If I marked a user as SPAM under Network Dashboard, all the sites which he is a subscriber or Contributer were also archived / Marked as spam.

    Yeah, it’s a bug :/ There’s a ticket out on that to correct it. If the admin is marked as spam, the site should go to spam, and not otherwise.

    Any idea when this bug will be fixed? It is getting kind of annoying! Or is there anything that can be altered in the code to fix it until the official fix is ready?

    There’s no patch yet :/ If you know how to fix it, we’d love to know!
