[Resolved] "other options" unclear and destructive
The “Other Options” section of the settings for this plugin are unclear to me in their function, and seem to be messing up user settings (although maybe if I understood what they are supposed to do it would make sense).
Here is what I see in WP 3.5.1:
Apply to Front Page:
[ ] Disable admin bar in users profile on registration
[ ] Show on Admin Edit Page
I have tried checking and unchecking these options but at first didn’t notice anything change. Then I stopped seeing the admin bar on the front side under my admin user, but other users (e.g. I have an Editor user for myself also) still had it. I suspected this plugin was causing the problem, so I tried toggling these options and tried disabling the plugin, but the admin bar would never come back for my admin user. Eventually I also lost it under my Editor user. Finally I dug into the code and found the
usermetatable, where the “show_admin_bar_front” keys were all mixed up. Some were set to true and others to false, but I don’t understand why they were inconsistent.
To fix the issue, I set them all to true directly in the database, and commented out the code that makes the update in this plugin. Can you please explain these options more clearly in the description or readme, and perhaps fix if there is a bug? Thanks!
