#3375 assigned defect (bug)

Deleting the lone Keymaster leaves site without a way to manage Forums

Reported by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby Owned by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: 2.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: API - Roles/Capabilities Keywords: needs-patch


Reported via the Support Forums.

It should not be possible to delete/demote the lone Keymaster in a site. This is because like the Administrator role, the Keymaster role is "protected" in such a way that only Keymasters can promote other users to Keymaster.

Removing that user, or demoting them, leaves bbPress stuck without a way to grant another user (or yourself) the Keymaster role once again.

  • Milestone changed from 2.6.6 to 2.7

This is going to be a bigger change than I'm comfortable making in a minor release, so bumping to 2.7.
