3.6 Network Admin Help Text — at Version 5
|Reported by:||DrewAPicture||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by DrewAPicture)
One of the Doc team's action items for 3.6 is to work on overhauling the Network Admin help tabs, many of which contain outdated and, well, unhelpful information.
- Focus on writing action vs description-based help text
- Aim for a consistent voice
- Pave the way for future Help UI changes in how we structure the information
Any Network Admin screen is fair game but by no means do we intend to change strings just for the sake of change. It was the consensus of the team to focus on this effort earlier in the release cycle than usual so that translators will have plenty of time to work on new strings and provide feedback.
Following some feedback from @nacin, @markjaquith, and @aaroncampbell, it was decided the best format for concatenating help tabs strings should follow this format going forward:
$example_string = '<p>' . __( 'This is some help text' ) . '</p>'; $example_string .= '<p>' . __( 'This is some more help text' ) . '</p>'; get_current_screen()->add_help_tab( array( 'id' => 'example', 'title' => __( 'Example' ), 'content' => $example_string ) );
