#11346 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Discussion tickboxes for posts labeled as if for pages

Description

When creating anew post, the box that allows you to turn on/off comments and pings says:
"Allow Comments on this page.
Allow trackbacks and pingbacks on this page."

(instead of "on this post.")

Not a big deal, but if an easy fix, would be good to fix to reduce confusion (the "I thought I was making a new post, did I hit Add New Page by accident?' thought).

Broken by changes for #6362 in [12228].

Didn't notice we were changing a shared meta box there.

#2 @westi

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

(In [12323]) Revert the string change to the Discussion meta box as this is a generic box for multiple post types. Fixes #11346.

In 55040:

Pings/Trackbacks: Remove a mention of the "Page" post type from the Discussion meta box.

This changeset removes a mention of the "Page" post type from the Discussion meta box as this is a generic meta box, used for multiple post types. It makes it more consistent with the other option available in the meta box ("Allow comments") and also with the corresponding option in the block editor.

Follow-up to [12323].
