Description

When editing revisions for post types, the user experience could be improved by not using the word "post" in the return to editor link.

Link added in r27383 (see #24682).

This will improve the experience for people editing revisions for other post types that are not posts, like Custom CSS or something like that.

Alternatively, the link could use the label from the post type instead of "post" — but I think it's cleaner to just leave it out completely.

Looks good, great suggestion. Could go even simpler, 'Return' or 'Go Back'? are you always returning to an editor?

#2 @lancewillett

Yes, it always returns to the post editor; the href value is derived from get_edit_post_link().
