Bug - Dashboard crash on fresh install

Found this on two of my WordPress installations (one running current stable and one running bleeding-edge WordPress).

After activating, Dashboard would return error 500. Turned on debugging in PHP and found this error repeated around 82 times before running out of memory and dying:

Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in /var/www/vhosts/blahblah/problem-with-post-edit-buttonttpdocs/blog/wp-content/plugins/simple-press/sp-api/sp-api-primitives.php on line 761

 

I "fixed" this by checking for "if ((isset($spThisUser))&&(isset($spThisUser->tracki)))", but I'm not entirely sure where $spThisUser comes from, so haven't looked into working out why it isn't initialised.

This was a clean installation on these blogs, can't 100% confirm that was the reason for the crash tho.

not sure why that would cause anything to die or crash...

we have not done a thorough sweep yet with debug on to fix all the notices but certainly will before release...

will get a ticket open on this one...

$spThisUser is an object containing wp current user info plus sp specific info...  possible this is pre setup of it as you indicate...

Unfortunately not.

Still get:

Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in /var/www/vhosts/blahblah/problem-with-post-edit-buttonttpdocs/wp-content/plugins/simple-press/sp-api/sp-api-primitives.php on line 761

many many many times until it runs our of PHP memory

Should add, it all works fine on my other website once the forum is installed (that other installation had this error before I haxed it). Seems to happen after activating the plugin but before running the actual forum installation.

Spotted a few SVN commits today, just ran a fresh install on the blog that was previously throwing a wobbly - now appears to be functioning correctly on all the test cases I have running 🙂

cool. we actually had forgotten to run through install and upgrade with debug on... had done pass through front end and fixed maybe 90% before opened alpha... andy has been going through install and upgrade to fix up those notices too...

thanks for update...
