Support » Fixing WordPress » user mysteriousl got logged out, why?

  • Hello,

    I have a web page to update the db but I want only one person (name XX) to do it. So I check the user name like this

    global $current_user;
        $current_user = wp_get_current_user();
        echo 'username is: ' . $current_user->user_login . ';';
        if ($current_user->user_login != "XX") {
            $return = new WP_Error('11', __('You can't update.') );

    here I have added a debug line ‘echo’ to display the user name.

    Here is what happens:

    The user logs in, select the web page. The name XX is displayed indicating the user is logged in. eg ‘username is: XX;’.

    The user fills the form on the page, click the update button but the user name is now missing. The $current_user object is now empty. He is no longer logged in! eg ‘username is:;’

    How is that possible, all within the same web page? I don’t know wp enough to understand how user got logged out.

    Can anyone help?


    PS, I have installed
