Permalink options page lacks syntax or formatting instructions
|Reported by:||h3h||Owned by:||anonymous|
The Customize Permalinks page has 4 options. The "Default" setting leaves the "Custom structure" box blank, but the box stays blank if one chooses the "Custom" radio button.
There are no syntactical or formatting instructions anywhere on the page as there are in WP 1.5.
The user has no easy way (opening the Codex in a new window and looking up variables is *not* easy) of knowing that the "Custom structure" box should contain something like "/%postname%/" unless he/she incidentally clicks on one of the other radio buttons, and then it's only by a means of reasoning.
This needs to be spelled out as it is in 1.5, giving an example of a "Custom structure format" directly above or below the box itself, making clear that one should start with "/..." and not "http://mysite.com/..." as well as the most common variables (%year%, %monthnum%, %day, %postname%, etc.).
I'll create a patch if no one else is willing.
