#33579 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

want to change the $monthtext in touch_time(/wp-admin/includes/template.php)

There is a problem with the editing of existing posts ( and comments ) date.

Japanese post here:

function touch_time(template.php line787-788)

$monthtext = $wp_locale->get_month_abbrev( $wp_locale->get_month( $i ) );
$month .= "\t\t\t" . '<option value="' . $monthnum . '" data-text="' . $monthtext . '" ' . selected( $monthnum, $mm, false ) . '>';


	.replace( '%1$s', $( 'option[value="' + mm + '"]', '#mm' ).attr( 'data-text' ) )

for example the Japanese of today:

$monthtext = '8月';
postL10n.dateFormat = '%3$s年%1$s月%2$s日 @ %4$s:%5$s';

// replaced text
'2015年8月月28日 @ 10:50'

In this way '月' has ended up overlapping.
The same thing might have occurred in other languages.

get_month_abbrev method has also been used in such calendar display.
I feel the need for a new method.

This sounds like a translation issue, the date format string probably should not have '月' there if the month name already contains it.

The date format string has been used in various places. It will not be able to solve if simply changing the date format string.

Problem is I think not the point.

It has been modified to use the data-text attribute in version 4.3.
And, the content of this data-text attribute is the abbreviation of the month.

In versions prior to 4.3, post.js(post.min.js) was using the contents of the option element.

sprintf( __( '%1$s-%2$s' ), $monthnum, $wp_locale->get_month_abbrev( $wp_locale->get_month( $i ) ) )

In the case of Japanese environment, '%1$s-%2$s' will be translated '%1$s'. As a result, it becomes '08' in the case of August.
It is important that it has been changed to the abbreviation of the month from a number.

It came up now:
function touch_time(template.php line788)

$month .= "\t\t\t" . '<option value="' . $monthnum . '" data-text="' . sprintf( _x( '%2$s', 'data-text' ), $monthnum, $monthtext ) . '" ' . selected( $monthnum, $mm, false ) . '>';

And using the translation in the case of Japanese select the '%1$s'.

How about this.

We have solved this by changing the date format string.
