#3196 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Grammar in first comment

Description

The grammar in the default first comment (in wp-admin/install.php) is a little off. "Hi, this is a comment. To delete a comment, just log in, and view the posts’ comments, there you will have the option to edit or delete them." It should probably read, "Hi, this is a comment. To delete a comment, just log in and view the posts’ comments. There you will have the option to edit or delete them." I'm a card-carrying grammar Nazi.

Hm, the use of posts' (as opposed to post's) is also fuzzy. A specific comment cannot belong to more than one post, but when editing comments, you view all of the posts' comments together.

It's still a run-on sentence. You should really separate it into 3 separate sentences.

"Hi, this is a comment.
To delete a comment, just log in and view the post's comments.
There you will have the option to edit or delete them."

I agree with changing posts' to post's. Good point.
