On I try to change the "Number of items per page" but after entering another numeric value and clicking the button "Change Settings" my changes are discarded and the old values are shown. Same applies for all other two settings in that form. Using a different browser doesn't change anything.

I just looked again and settings menu now seems to be back working normally.

I switch workflow to "close", right?

Still doesn't work for me:

  1. I change "Number of items per page:" from 120 to 100 and click Change Settings.
  2. After a page refresh, the value is still 120.

Latest Chrome, Windows 10.

Replying to SergeyBiryukov:

Ups, sorry, made the wrong assumption it would work for everyone now.
Everything fine for me at the moment.

Same issue on Rosetta's Translation Editors page:

If I change Number of items per page in Screen Options from 20 to 100, the change is not saved.

Fixed in [dotorg12451]:

Delete user data in the 'users' cache group on meta data changes.

We have to do this because bbPress 1.x uses BackPress which appends user meta to the user object and stores it in the 'users' cache group, see
WP_User::init() allows to initialize a new user object with any arbitrary data. In this case it will be bbPress'/BackPress' outdated user meta.

WordPress uses a custom cache group for meta data so it doesn't delete the data in the 'users' cache group by default.

This plugin can be removed once all bbPress 1/BackPress-reliant stuff is gone.

Fixes #meta2034, #meta1980.
