11687.diff moves Upload Files to options-media.php and gets rid of options-misc.php since it's empty.

#2 @nacin

No use keeping an empty options-misc.php file like the way it is in the patch.

If we're going to empty out options-misc.php, though, wouldn't it still need to be kept around in case any plugins add options to it? (We could throw deprecation warnings for any plugins hooking into it, and perhaps then only add it to the navigation if there's something hooked in.)

Didn't really know what to do with the options-misc.php file. Feel free to improve the patch.

#4 @nacin

Hmm, I honestly don't know what we'd do here. It would break plugins for sure, but we do need to consolidate the media options, so I guess that's a small price to pay.

What's with the Track Links Update Times option? That's not media, but should it really be an option? I'm not sure where we'd move it if we keep it in core.

Okay, new patch moves the media-related options in options-misc.php to options-media.php.

After that, this leaves options-misc.php with a single option. Second opinion needed there on how to deal with that last option and options-misc.php in general.

In case anyone was hooking into do_settings_fields('misc', 'default') to add media-related options to options-misc.php, it wasn't moved with the media-related options, so plugins would need to be adjusted. do_settings_fields('media', 'uploads') was added to the options that were moved over.

I'm going to commit this for now, I think it might be time to retire the misc. settings page and push it into the other menu's.

as for the empty page, theres 2 options:

  1. Move them onto another page
  2. only show the menu if there are other settings which should be displayed on that page.

#7 @scribu

For option 1: they could be moved to Settings -> General

I like 2. Maybe plugins with 1 or two settings could use it, instead of creating a separate settings page.

Shouldn't the !is_multisite() check be retained? MU sites don't allow per-blog settings for these.
