#34917 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Use meaningful variable names in wpLists

Reported by: helgatheviking Owned by:

Severity: normal Version:
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch needs-testing dev-feedback
Focuses: javascript, administration Cc:


The wp-includes/js/wplists.js script is cryptic and unnecessarily difficult to read. Single letters, such as e, s, r, f, a, don't tell us anything about what the variable is, or what type of data it is containing, which ultimately makes this script really difficult to work with.

Is there anybody who can translate these variables? At least for the non-minified version?

@rommelxcastro: I'm sorry this wasn't picked up as a duplicate earlier :( #36264 has a patch - I would love for you to take a look at it and see if you'd suggest any changes.
