#23540 closed enhancement (fixed)

Network Update screen text

Milestone: 3.6 Priority: low
Severity: minor Version:
Component: Text Changes Keywords: has-patch commit

Description

At /wp-admin/network/upgrade.php, the text prompt is:

You can update all the sites on your network through this page. It works by calling the update script of each site automatically. Hit the link below to update.

It's confusing because it is worded more like a core update notice than the database update notice, but @nacin says this is db, not code. Should modify text to be consistent with the wording used on single site db update notice.

Also, it says hit the link below, but it's actually a button, so the word "link" should become "button" for clarity.

Screenshot attached.

  • Component changed from Network Admin to Text Changes
  • Keywords has-patch added; needs-patch removed

23540.diff takes a stab at it:

Database Update Required

WordPress has been updated! Before we send you on your way, we need to individually update the sites in your network.

The update process may take a little while, so please be patient.

I'd suggest we use "database upgrade", not "database update". We have, for a long while, said "update" when referring to code, and "upgrade" when referring to the database. Note upgrade.php (for a single-site upgrade).

In 23619:

Call them network upgrades rather than network updates to better indicate that they are DB upgrades rather than code/file upgrades.

Improve the contextual help for the Network Upgrade screen.

fixes #23540

Wish I had seen this ticket to chime in sooner.

This is a confusing change after years of avoiding using "Upgrade" in core and plugins. It implies:

  • That a "downgrade" is possible (which isn't something we currently offer.)
  • That it's optional (when it's usually necessary)
  • That it's a reward (upgrading to first class, upgrading your rental car, upgrading your cable package)

I don't care strongly enough to lobby for a revert, but it was nice to have the strict verbiage rule to lean on.

We do have a strict verbiage rule. "update" = code, "upgrade" = DB.

In 25191:

Hide 'Database Upgrade Required' on admin/network/upgrade.php when you are not being asked to upgrade, to prevent confusion.
