#33743 new defect (bug)

Theme location x Menu location

Reported by: pavelevap's profile pavelevap Owned by:

Severity: normal Version:
Component: Menus Keywords: has-patch needs-copy-review
Focuses: ui-copy Cc:


We are using "Theme Location" and "Theme locations" in admin menu page (and also many help text sentences).

But Customizer uses "Menu locations" and "Menu Locations".

I am not sure what is better, but it should be same.

  • Keywords needs-patch added

We're already pretty standardized on "theme locations" in documentation, and as you said, the help tabs, so I'd go with "Theme Locations".

I found 75 instances of menu location(s), menu-location(s) in the codebase (documentation, css, js, code).
22 instances of theme location(s), theme-location(s).

Does it still make sense to pick "Theme locations", and in cases like this one do we leave the code alone and only update the documentation?

Another string: the Menus admin page uses "Display location" when editing a menu, which has confused translators (#58629).

  • Focuses ui-copy added
  • Keywords has-patch needs-copy-review added; needs-patch removed

I think the help text could be better than what the patch has, but it's a start.
