#1501 new defect (bug)

slash and backslash problem on windows

Reported by: de-ce's profile de-ce Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release (Legacy) Priority: normal
Severity: major Version: 1.1-alpha
Component: Back-end Keywords:


Some plugins that rely on bb_register_plugin_activation_hook have problems on Windows (such as bbPress Attachments).

The hook is called for user#plugin-folder/plugin-file.php, but the activation is made with user#plugin-folder\plugin-file.php. Slash - backslash problem.

bb_basename function returns the "right" path, but BB_Dir_Map class used in admin uses DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR constant to construct the path.

As far as I know, Windows doesnt mind if you're using slashes.
