Help Tabs for Network Admin Settings outdated nav-menu reference

Reported by: dougwrites Owned by: ryan
Milestone: 3.2 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.1
Component: Multisite Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:

Description

The contextual help tabs attached to the screens Network Admin>Settings>Settings and Network Admin>Settings>Network Setup refer to the Super Admin section of the main (site) left navigation menu. This menu section was only in 3.0. I have a patch ready that reflects the new nav menu being in the separate Network Admin section.

  • Keywords i18n-change has-patch added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 3.2
  • Version set to 3.1

Nice catch.

  • Keywords i18n-change removed

Per IRC, going to kill the strings for 3.1.1. Neither are particularly helpful, and that's only worse when they're wrong and confusing.

(In [17567]) Remove two out of date strings from network contextual help. see #16988 for the 3.1 branch.

comment:4 nacin3 years ago

I think the new version of the first string is a bit too verbose.

comment:5 dougwrites3 years ago

@nacin: here's a first pass at trimming that string for 3.2 (I wasn't expecting anything for 3.1.1 so removing the confusing is a nice and elegant bonus):

Once you add this code/refresh your browser, this screen archives that added code. A set of links for 15 screens will form a left navigation for the Network Admin sections. Toggle between Network Admin and Site Admin in the upper right of the Admin Header. The multisite network is now enabled.

Second pass, more direct. Should I put this in a new patch?:

Once you add this code, and refresh your browser, the multisite network should be enabled. This screen archives that added code. The Network Admin sections have a new left navigation for 15 screens. You can toggle between Network Admin and Site Admin in the upper right of the Admin Header.

I suggest we kill the third sentence (in second pass) to keep it simple and timeless:

Once you add this code and refresh your browser, multisite should be enabled. This screen will keep an archive of the added code. You can toggle between Network Admin and Site Admin in the upper right of the administration area.

@nacin: +1 to your most recent slice. I put it in a new patch.

Patch is still good. Grammar reads okay to me too.

comment:10 dougwrites3 years ago

Need a slight revision due to the UI Style Refresh:

last sentence of line 111 could be: You can toggle between Network Admin and Site Admin by clicking on the Howdy (Username) dropdown in the upper right of the administration area.
