#36466 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Remove "appearance" reference in customizer permissions error

Reported by: celloexpressions Owned by: SergeyBiryukov

Severity: minor Version: 4.4

The customizer can be used for things much broader than the appearance of the site, such as menus and widgets. Accordingly, we try to avoid referencing specific things that could be customized when describing what the Customizer does.

#33668 / [33857] introduced a more helpful error message when a user without permissions accesses the customizer. However, it specifically references customizing the appearance of the site. Also note that permission to open the customizer but not make changes can be granted, so due to the varying potential for what exactly this message would mean, going more generic would be good.

You are not allowed to customize the appearance of this site.

Should be changed to:

You are not allowed to customize this site.
