Duplicate strings for tabs in theme install page

Reported by: pavelevap Owned by: SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: 4.0 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.9
Component: I18N Keywords: has-patch commit

PR Number:


There are several duplicate strings, for example:

  • "Featured" with context "Theme Installer"


  • "Featured" with context "themes"


But it is the same context. We do not need several duplicate strings. I am not sure if older strings are needed in new redesign of install page? But we should use the same context and combine strings, I guess.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 4.0

WP_Theme_Install_List_Table is no longer used, but yes, we should use a consistent context.

#2 @pavelevap

I can make a patch, but I am not sure if only combine context or there will be some code cleanup changes (removing not used parts).

#3 @SergeyBiryukov

Let's just combine the context for now.

#4 @pavelevap

OK, thank you! I tried to combine strings and as a result 4 strings can be removed.

  • "Fetured" (same strings with different context).
  • Changed "Latest" to "Newest" (combine strings and respect also Plugin Installer)
  • Combined "Upload" and "Upload Theme" (same meaning).
  • Commented "Recenty Updated" (not used and needed).

I am not sure about all these changes, so please look at it.

I'd suggest using the newer context, 'themes': 28123.patch.

It would still allow us to remove 3 strings. 'Recently Updated' is indeed unused, but I think we should keep it until the whole WP_Theme_Install_List_Table class is removed.

#6 @pavelevap

No problem :-) Only 2 strings ("Featured" and "Latest") will be removed when "Upload" and "Upload Theme" will not be merged.
