#18291 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Incorrect grammar in user notification email

Reported by: johnbillion's profile johnbillion Owned by: ryan's profile ryan
Milestone: 3.3 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.2.1
Component: Multisite Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


When a new user is added to a site as an editor, the activation email says "You've been invited to join {site} at {url} as a editor." which is grammatically incorrect.

Not sure of the best way to fix this. A phonetic helper would be overkill, especially when it comes to i18n. Maybe we need to introduce labels for user roles (similar to labels for CPTs and taxos), or just change the wording of the email.

PS thought this had been addressed before but a Trac search brought up nothing.

The string is terrible, but "with the role of $%s" should be fine. At least it'll be grammatically correct.
