Note that if we want different text for different post types and taxonomies, we'll need to switch on the type. edit.php could use Post terminology for all types except page.

Other Help is automatically appended in screen_meta(). Some of the help links there conflict with the ones here. Maybe move those into a function that can be optionally added.

comment:9 demetris4 years ago

What is the plan here, if I may ask?

Are we going to write the Missing Manual for WordPress, repeat everything that our eyes tell us without needing any (con)textual help, and then add all that to the admin interface?

Is anyone actually thinking?

I usually stay away from UI/UX tickets, because I’ve found that they are governed by rather peculiar concepts of professional standards and peer review, but this new idea drives the chaotification of the admin UI to a whole new level.

And all that as we are about to go into string freeze?

comment:10 xibe4 years ago

Previous text lost in crash, had to rewrite in shorter form :(

1) I have to agree with Demetris, in that it's a big ol' chunk of text that has been added - I should know, I just spent a couple hours translating it all :) Some really seem redundant (really? explaining drag'n'dropping?), or describing usages that have been in place since 2.7.

That being said, I did learn a couple things, mostly because I've never batch-edited posts before, for instance :)

2) I can't help be be concerned on the supplementary strain this might put on shared-hosts installs, with limited memory. We at WPFR already often advise users to disable the translated (along with plugins) before launching the WP update, as this frees quite a lot of memory. Adding so much text might mean that more shared-hosts will be fighting failing updates. I might be wrong, but has this been taken into account?

comment:11 follow-up: nacin4 years ago

We're beating a dead horse when it comes to memory limit issues, I think -- #13307. In the grand scheme of package size, we're not adding much text, and text is getting very significantly compressed.

comment:12 in reply to: ↑ 11 ; follow-up: xibe4 years ago

Replying to nacin:

In the grand scheme of package size, we're not adding much text, and text is getting very significantly compressed.

So be it.

Then again, reading the last comments on #13307, I would clearly not be against Denis' suggestion (which is in line with the present ticket), adding this to the upgrade screen:

"The upgrader doesn't work on all servers. If the upgrade fails on your server, don't panic! Upgrade WP manually by following these instructions (with a link to a codex article), and things will be fine." (Note: the instructions should tell users to delete the .maintenance file.)

Links section help text (edit, add new/edit ind, link cats)

comment:13 follow-up: jane4 years ago

We meant to have this kind of help text in the help tab back in 2.7, we just never got around to it. It all seems obvious to us, but if you've watched new users trying to get up to speed, you understand that often the web-savviness level is low to non-existent.

The fact that Xavier, who wrote a book on using WordPress, learned something from it shows that it's not only useful to newbies.

Replying to xibe:

Just to provide an answer to that before we return from our tangent to regularly scheduled programming. Though it can be considered in the future, that comment was unrelated to the issue of #13307. Since we now increase memory_limits in the admin area for the downloading of the package (once the user has upgraded to 3.0), only servers that block memory_limit bumps will have an issue after 3.0, and they would have a problem anyway, regardless of the package size.

"Co-wrote", I might add -- and I wasn't the one in charge of the "everyday use" section :)

Replying to nacin:

Though it can be considered in the future, that comment was unrelated to the issue of #13307

I'm not judging that, only that I think we should keep a notice that, if all fails, manual update is still possible - and that such help text could be considered as part of the present "help text" ticket :)

(...) they would have a problem anyway, regardless of the package size.

Alright, then. Horse, buried.

comment:21 duck_4 years ago

Made a couple of changes when I thought necessary (e.g. GNU Public License to GNU General Public License). My only other thought is that the last paragraph for theme-install.php doesn't read well to me (seems to be saying the same thing twice, but slightly differently).

comment:22 follow-up: nacin4 years ago

duck_: "Upload a theme manually" is referring to the fact that you can actually upload a ZIP file through theme-install and let WP unzip and install for you. The old-fashioned way is then uploading into wp-content yourself.

I think it's clear enough, with "Upload" capitalized and there being an upload filter link.

FYI, Doug Provencio wrote first drafts of these screens, and will continue to help out by proofing for typos, etc. I'm not catching everything in the interest of getting them posted quickly so there's time to include them. Doug will comment here when he finds typos. For example, in the Links screen text, line 7 "using he Options Screen" should be "the". My oversight.

comment:36 dougwrites4 years ago

Plugins Section

Tai: You just beat me in pointing out been instead of teen

also, originally line 34, in plugin-editor: "click once any file name" -- add "on" after once -- I think Duck got that, but it was still in the nightly build.

For (originally line 9) in plugins.php, "C:\xampplite\xampplite\htdocs\wordpress/wp-content/plugins" is problematic. Can we just say, ".../wp-content/plugins in your directory" with or without the ellipis, to get around identifying different servers and local hosts?

comment:37 dougwrites4 years ago

Posts Section

post-new.php: line 25 "Post editor -- Enter the text for you post" should be "your"

Same, line 26, "Publish (immediately)" is confusing because there is bolding but not parentheses for immediately in the Publish box. Reformat?

Same, line 28: "If you link other WordPress sites" should be "link to other"

edit-tags.php, line 64: uh, someone else got here first and already changed "category" to "tag" Thanks!

comment:39 dougwrites4 years ago

Users Section

going from the corrections/numbers of Dragoonis: users-new.php, line 115: "Editors can publish posts, manage posts as well as manage other people" is confusing; how about "Editors can publish and manage their own posts as well as other people's posts" unless I'm misunderstanding that set of capabilities?

same, line 121, missing word in "Uncheck the box if you do not the password to be included in the welcome email." should be "do not want the password"

comment:40 dougwrites4 years ago

Links Section

Building on Jorbin's corrections/numbering:

Now line 47 in link-manager.php "to several sites in WordPress community are included as examples" I think should be "sites in the WordPress community"

Line 49 is now the location of the "he" that should be "the"

comment:42 dougwrites4 years ago

Jorbin: but "Publish immediately" is different from "Publish" -- both are in that box

comment:43 jorbin4 years ago

dougwrites - Isn't immediately the default option rather then a characteristic to describe it. If you adjust it no longer says immediately.

comment:44 dougwrites4 years ago

Jorbin: now I see that; the confusion is that people's eyes are going to see "publish immediately" and "publish" in that same box. Reverting to "Publish (immediately)" is clearer than referring to "Publish" twice for that same box. The parentheses are not in the line of siight, but "immediately" can change...

On link-manager, I was suggesting adding a "the" rather than subtracting a "several"

This text in users.php is wrong:

"To add a new user for your site, click the Add New button at the top of the screen or Add New in the Appearance menu section."

As we all know, there is no "Add New" (user) in the Appearance menu section.

comment:64 jane4 years ago

@jottlieb Thanks for the catch! Must have been a copy and paste error along the way.

@zeo: I'm moving away from that (the Codex standard); you may have noticed I used 'screen' instead of 'panel' and 'subpanel' as well. I want the only extra capitalized things to be the actual section/screen names themselves, so Post editor is ok.

comment:65 ryan4 years ago

Some of the text, such as mentions of editing themes in Menus help, doesn't really apply to MU setups. I think we can put in some cap checks for edit_themes, edit_plugins in a few places.

Also, some link to Codex under Help has the attribute target="_blank" and some don't. Not sure whether to provide patch with or without target="blank" for external link.

That last commit forces the user to get the latest articles from the WP Planet, which are in English. We at WPFR have our own planet, with French blogs. Hence, it would be cool if the string could be reverted to a state where local team can point to local planets...

These should all be target="_blank" and also translatable. I'll go through and handle.

Small improvement to MS Options help screen.

ms-sites.php:23 (/wp-admin/ms-sites.php?action=editblog&id=1)

The network admin arrives at this screen to make choices for a given site by clicking on the Edit link on the Sites screen available to them in the Super Admin navigation menu.

Really, I can't make head nor tail from this phrase - and thus am having a difficult time translating it. Isn't there a better wording somewhere? :)

A lot of the multisite strings seem quite dense.

comment:91 follow-up: nacin4 years ago

I'm thinking that whole string should go. I'm going to do some cleanup.

No such 6th module in current version.

(In [15132]) target=blank for help. props jorbin, see #13467

comment:97 follow-up: nacin4 years ago

Since there are strong opinions on target=_blank, I wish to preempt:

  1. The default contextual help links pre-3.0 were target=_blank.
  1. From MarkJaquith: "If you do venn diagram of the people who need help and the people who know how to open a link in a new tab, they're probably not overlapping."

This is the behavior we're using in 3.0.

More target="_blank"

13467-target_blank.diff includes:

  • Adds missing target="_blank" to external link
  • Removes Duplicate target="_blank"
  • target="_blank" position consistency, add after href attribute

...plus few minor enhancements (see patch).

target="_blank" - this should be the default for all external links in the core especially links that point to Codex. I wouldn't mind opening a ticket and making a patch for this. Let me know.

All links that points to Codex need to be reviewed.

A few of them are just placeholder (for example: http://codex.wordpress.org/Super_Admin_Sites_SubPanel) which is fine. Why not create a placeholder for other sub panel/menu too?

For example, Comment-> Edit Comment-> Help tab, under "More information:" there's a link to http://codex.wordpress.org/Administration_Panels#Comments. Why not add additional link to http://codex.wordpress.org/Comments_Edit_Comment_SubPanel?

I think it's better to add an empty placeholder page in Codex rather than adding any existing Codex page that are too general, useless or obsolete. At least we can fill the empty Codex page after the release.

tai/zeo please open new tickets for little issues like this as the main purpose of this ticket has been achieved and it makes it much easier for us to have a focused discussion and for people to not report duplicate issues.

I have created tickets for the two issues raised: #13735, #13736

Marking as Fixed - New changes to be made against other tickets.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
