The sum of publish and trash should be 1 for new installations( accounting for sample page and the 'hello world' post )

I think the idea is that most people will dismiss it if they are familiar with the dashboard. However, I do think there is room for improvement.

The text, as is, certainly applies to a new user who has just installed WordPress.

That said, I've found the 'Welcome Panel' to be quite useful to users past the initial install.

It might be worthwhile to have its text (or other properties) be dynamic according to the user's setup.

The pseudocode from @rohan013 looks right, and the code looks sound.

What's the next step we need take to close this down?

I think having this text adapt makes sense. Is the current patch working for anyone else - checking as its not for me.

  • Focuses administration ui-copy added
  • Keywords needs-refresh added
  • Severity changed from normal to minor
  • Type changed from defect (bug) to enhancement

26764.diff no longer applies cleanly. If we still want to do this change, the patch needs a refresh.

While I agree the current wording is not 100% relevant, I'm not quite fine with the implementation proposed in 26764.diff. I believe it adds too much complex.

We can probably simplify it using "Write a new blog post" and "add a new page", which works independently from the number of already published posts/pages.
