#38517 closed enhancement (fixed)

Remove references to 'articles' instead of 'posts'

Reported by: johnbillion's profile johnbillion Owned by: johnbillion's profile johnbillion
Milestone: 5.3 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch good-first-bug
Focuses: administration Cc:


On the Settings -> Discussion screen, posts are referred to as "articles". The reason for this phrasing is to avoid "post" being used as a verb and a noun within the same sentence:

Allow people to post comments on new articles


This problem can be avoided by referring to submitting comments instead of posting comments:

Allow people to submit comments on new posts

There are a few related places where the phrase "article" is used instead of posts. These should all be replaced with "posts" for consistency.

Now that this is done, I was having trouble explaining to a new user that those options apply to all post types with comment support, not just posts. (like Pages, Events, Portfolios, etc.)
