Description

Breaking apart from #WP32589, I have some suggestions that I believe improve upon the existing verbiage used for managing your password and sessions within your user profile.

Old Strings, in order of presentation:

  • "Generate new password"
  • " "
  • "Log Out of All Other Sessions"
  • "Left your account logged in at a public computer? Lost your phone? This will log you out everywhere except your current browser."
  • "Log %s out of all sessions"

New Strings:

  • "Generate Password"
  • "Sessions"
  • "Log Out Everywhere"
  • "Did you lose your phone or leave your account logged in at a public computer? You can log out everywhere else, and stay logged in here."
  • "Log %s out of all locations"

Reasoning:

  • Because you cannot generate an old one
  • Because a non-breaking space is not very helpful
  • Because it's less wordy
  • Because questions should start obviously and be answered directly
  • Because 'locations' seems less like jargon to less fluent WordPress users

"Log Out Everywhere" isn't accurate since the current session isn't destroyed.

Replying to jorbin:

"Log Out Everywhere" isn't accurate since the current session isn't destroyed.

True, it's not 100% accurate. I find the string "Log Out of All Other Sessions" to be long, and the titlecase hurts my eyes because it's so long. Can you think of any shorter alternatives?
