Description

We should disable via JS the "Front page" and "Posts page" dropdowns when "Latest posts" is selected.

Better UX, less confusion for the user.

Just me or is this working the wrong way around? Should it be:

selects.attr('disabled', staticPage.is(':checked') ? '' : 'disabled');

While we're in there, can we change Front Page to Home Page? Most users say home, not front.

Patch attached for the lingo change. However, I'm still experiencing the fields being disabled if the 'latest posts' option is checked, which appears to be the original intended solution for this ticket. Are you intending for them to be disabled and hidden, or just disabled?

As this ticket was closed as fixed on a long-closed milestone, I'm going to close this in lieu of #16379.
