#1690 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

change to admin/post.php template after post has been created

Severity: minor Version: 1.5.2
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch 2nd-opinion

After a post has been created it will just say "Post Site. View Site" with a link to their homepage. I think it would be helpful if it said something like "Your Post has been saved. <link>View Your Site</link> to see the changes, or <link>edit existing posts</link>.

This just gives the user a little more option on what to do next.

Then have it modeled similar on the page-new.php file under wp-admin/ Right now its "Page saved. <link>Manage pages »</link>" It could have a similar to what I suggested above for the post creation.

Both of the post and new page creation confirmations should have a link to the home page, and link to edit existing pages/posts.

This is my first ticket Ive created, I apoligize in advance if I have done something wrong.

I'd quite like to see a variety of options, myself; something like, as an example:

Post saved. What would you like to do now?

View Site # View Post # Manage Posts

Where I want to go after I post something depends entirely on the circumstances: if it's just a regular post, I'll more than lively want to go to the front page/the post permalink; if I'm adding quite a lot of content, or maybe just one or two more posts, I'd like to stay on the post screen; if I want to double check something in the post I just made, or notice a typo as I submit, I'll want to go to Manage Posts to edit the page.

The current system forces me to click a few more times than is necessary, IMO, especially considering the trivial nature of such a patch.

Having options that make sense in context is a good idea across the board, not just in this particular circumstance.

Attached for branches 2.0 and trunk

  1. Fixes some <strong> inconsistencies.
  2. Standardizes the i18n.
  3. "View post/page" link instead of "View site" link. We already have one of those at the top, and it seems like people would want to check the new content instead of the front page.
