#26837 closed enhancement (invalid)

Semantic elements for non-link links: POSTS link in admin screen

The link for "POSTS" be changed to be a button that does something, rather than a link that takes you somewhere. See ticket #26504 for background.

Relevant file/s

In the particular case of the "POSTS" link, the beautiful dashicon of the pin that precedes the link to POSTS "may" require additional handling for screen readers and voice recognition systems; it's in a division with a class of "wp-menu-image". A second opinion would be appreciated on the dashicons and whether any special handling is needed as it applies to assistive technology.

Congrats on your first ticket Sharon.

I think the Posts menu item isn't a good one to start with as part of #26504, because the link is always a link that goes to the Posts listing screen.

#26504 means to tackle all the links that have an href attribute of # and therefore don't actually function as a link but as a button.

If you want a good one to start with, Gary's suggestion of the Reply link on the comment moderation screen would make sense.
