Reversed arguments for the scheduled task to split terms could cause the database to balloon in size in certain cases. Here’s the ticket with more detailed information:
How can I fix it?
The solution has already been found, and it will be deployed in the 4.3.1 release. In the meantime there’s no need to worry, we got your back!
- Go to Manage >Plugins & Themes on your ManageWP dashboard
- Check Activate, and check all of your websites on the right
- Search for “wp33423 hotfix” in the WordPress repository
- Click Install
- Celebrate, preferably with a victory dance
Once the 4.3.1 WordPress version has been released, this plugin will deactivate itself automatically, and you can then use our Manage Plugins & Themes to completely remove it from your websites in seconds.
UPDATE: The 4.3.1 release is live, you no longer need to apply this fix – just use the ManageWP update widget to run the WordPress core update on all of your websites.
