Description

Both of the new Tools don't have any Help tab at all at the moment so that needs to get added and the Privacy (settings) page has a somewhat of abstracted text but nothing specific with a link that points to # since there are no online docs yet.

I think we have 2 options to make it to the release in a nice way:

1] We remove the Help tab from the Privacy(settings) as well.

2] We have to add Help everywhere with the appropriate explanations and links to online docs for people to read more if they want.

Any extra suggestions or texts that we could add?

  • Milestone changed from 4.9.6 to 4.9.7

Bumping to 4.9.7 so enough thought can be put into providing helpful text.

We definitely need to mention what gets deleted/exported and what does not (whether on .org or inline). After working on some integration of my own plugins, I'm noticing not much information is given about what gets deleted and what does not (e.g. user posts and author info) and the only way to understanding it is trying it out yourself.

For example, currently, posts submitted by authors are not exported or erased. Comments and user accounts are not erased either, the comment is just anonymized and the user account remains. I appreciate what exactly is removed/deleted is changed down the line.

Additionally, like the privacy policy, it may be helpful for other plugins to also have a way to hook into this help and state what they delete/anonymize too, possibly deriving from a list generated by WP containing things it deletes/anonymizes/keeps.

  • Keywords has-screenshots added

Added some screenshots of what the Posts page has. I think some of these tabs might actually work for us.

  • Milestone changed from 4.9.9 to 5.0

Punting to 5.0 since it falls outside of the 4.9.9 focus.

  • Milestone changed from 5.0 to 5.1

#20 @desrosj

  • Milestone changed from 5.1 to Future Release

This still needs copy. Punting until some is written.
